Hearing loss is something that is prevalent in our family, especially among the men. My father-in-law, my step-dad, my husband and even my oldest son, struggle with hearing issues. We have never examined the genetic connection in our family, but I am sure it’s a factor.
My husband and my son both suffered from chronic ear infections. My son had tubes in his ears twice before age 5. Ear issues are definitely a common problem in the Brosius family lineage.
Does Someone You Love Suffer from Hearing Loss?
My father-in-law and step-dad were both over the road truck drivers. They spent a lot of years behind the wheel of a tractor trailer. They were exposed to noise that could have led to their hearing loss problems.
My husband and son both worked in industrial settings, with exposure to machine noise. It wasn’t until the hearing loss issues surfaced that we even thought that their issues could stem from work related exposure.
Educating yourself and your loved ones about hearing loss is so important. Many of us take hearing for granted and don’t think about using safety precautions to protect it until it’s too late. Being proactive in prevention and education is so important.
