Prevalence of hearing loss in older adults in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. The Epidemiology of Hearing Loss Study.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hearing loss is a very common problem affecting older adults and Epidemiologic studies are needed to understand the genetic, environmental, and sex-related determinants of age-related hearing loss and to identify potential intervention strategies.
Prevalence of olfactory impairment in older adults.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that prevalence of olfactory impairment among older adults is high and increases with age, and self-report significantly underestimated prevalence rates obtained by olfaction testing.
The impact of hearing loss on quality of life in older adults.
TLDR
Severity of hearing loss was significantly associated with having a hearing handicap and with self-reported communication difficulties, and decreased function in both the Mental component Summary score and the Physical Component Summary score of the SF-36 as well as with six of the eight individual domain scores.
Prevalence and 5-year incidence of tinnitus among older adults: the epidemiology of hearing loss study.
TLDR
A population-based study of hearing loss in adults aged 48 to 92 years at baseline in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, suggests that tinnitus is a common problem for older adults and is associated with some modifiable risk factors.
Low Prevalence of Hearing Aid Use Among Older Adults with Hearing Loss: The Epidemiology of Hearing Loss Study
OBJECTIVES: To measure the prevalence of hearing aid use among older adults with hearing loss and to identify factors associated with those currently using hearing aids.
Tinnitus and its risk factors in the Beaver Dam Offspring Study
TLDR
Tinnitus is a common symptom in this cohort and may be associated with some modifiable risk factors, and the results suggest that it can be asociado with algunos of the factores de riesgo modificables.
Cigarette smoking and hearing loss: the epidemiology of hearing loss study.
TLDR
The data suggest that environmental exposures may play a role in age-related hearing loss and modification of smoking habits may prevent or delay age- related declines in hearing sensitivity.
The 5-year incidence and progression of hearing loss: the epidemiology of hearing loss study.
TLDR
Age was an important risk factor for both incidence and progression of hearing impairment, and male sex, occupation, and education were associated with the incidence of hearing loss after adjusting for age.
Central presbycusis: a review and evaluation of the evidence.
TLDR
There is insufficient evidence to confirm the existence of central presbycusis as an isolated entity as a multifactorial condition that involves age- and/or disease-related changes in the auditory system and in the brain.
