You may already know some factors that lead to hearing loss such as aging, loud noises, and head trauma. However, our audiologist in Hopkins, MN wants you to know that there are other less-obvious causes that can affect your hearing.  

Stress

Most of us are aware that chronic stress impacts our overall health. When you are stressed out oxygen is redirected to your muscles allowing you to react promptly. Typically, your body will return to normal once the stress is over. Constant stress means your body doesn’t return to normal and other parts of your body, including the hearing parts of your inner ear, suffer from lack of oxygen and circulation. 

Household Tools & Appliances

Frequent use of loud tools and appliances such as blenders, drills, and lawnmowers can eventually affect your hearing. Fortunately, there is an easy solution: protective hearing devices such as earplugs or earmuffs. 

Smoking

Smokers are at an increased risk to suffer from hearing loss. Nicotine limits blood from flowing to parts of your body including your inner ear and blocks neurotransmitters that send information to the brain. 

Medications

Certain medications are known to cause damage to the cells in your ears. These include diuretics for heart disease and chemotherapy.  Before you take any medication, speak with your doctor about its side effects and any alternative options.

"I have been a client of Jim's now for nearly a decade. I have been complete happy with his service. He is friendly, professional, informed, and good at what he does. Consistently he works for the best solution for me. I even took my ninety-four year old mother to him. She too was satisfied."

"Dr James Pehringer is the best audiologist I have met. He has taken care of my mother and her hearing for many years. I love that he has a PhD as it means to me he went beyond the minimum requirements to be the very best, and he is. He has solved one problem after another for my mother - he is sooo kind and spends all the time necessary to "fix the problem". I cannot recommend him highly enough. Even more than his knowledge of audiology, he is a very, very kind man."

- Rayeana Nine nine 5 star review

"My husband has worked with Dr. Pehringer for several years now and we are still highly impressed with his personal service, knowledge and concern for my husband's hearing problems and adjustment to hearing aid use. He is always ready to help with any difficulty encountered. His products are dependable and significantly enhance my husband's ability to function on a daily basis. We have referred friends to Dr. Pehringer and will continue to do so. We recommend Hearing Solutions Group."
