The human body has so many mechanisms and the working of each organ is really a miracle. It is one of the most precious of god's gifts to us. The ear as one of the sense organs plays a vital role not only in hearing but in maintaining the whole body balance.
With the help of hearing aids, malfunctioning of the ears can be treated very easily. With the advancement of technology, hearing defect is no longer a problem because of hearing aids. However, there are some problems encountered by people using it. They complain the noise while eating aside from being expensive.
Hearing noise while eating:
Hearing noise while eating is the common problem of individuals using hearing aids. The reason for this is the movement of the jaws – that while eating there is a disturbance created in the canal of the ear. This may vary from one person to another. There are some types of hearing aids that enter deep into the ear; thus, producing ringing sounds.
The device gets activated when the jaws are moved thereby producing the noise. How to solve this? Ventilate the ear properly and fix the equipment to suit to the size and shape of your ears. If you cannot do it yourself, and then go back to the seller to resolve your problem.
High cost of hearing aids:
Hearing aids are really expensive tools. Normally, only those who have the money can afford to buy this. It's disheartening to hear that the costs of hearing aids are not covered by insurance. However, there are ways that can help you find the inexpensive ones. How? Look for discounts but watch out these discounted items do not last long. You're lucky enough if you were able to buy this without any defect. Or else, make sure that you look at medical insurers to cover the cost of the device.
