There is no single identifiable cause of tinnitus. However, hearing loss of any degree is the most recognised cause of tinnitus.
Sasha Benatar, Adult Rehabilitation audiologist at Lions Hearing Clinic joined Mike to tell us more. Tinnitus is currently affecting 15-20% of the population. While there is no cure for tinnitus there are management and treatment options available.
“Tinnitus and hearing loss are so closely associated with one another and often it can be such a minimal hearing loss that you don’t even know it’s present in your day to day life. It (treatment) really has to be tailored to your needs, there’s no one size fits all”
