There are numer­ous causes of hear­ing loss. Some forms are ge­netic while oth­ers in­clude tox­i­c­ity from par­tic­u­lar med­i­ca­tions, dam­age from in­dus­trial noise, au­toim­mune in­ner ear dis­ease, vi­ral in­fec­tions and age­ing. Pro­tect your hear­ing by avoid­ing loud noise or wear­ing pro­tec­tive ear muffs or plugs when ex­posed to pro­longed pe­ri­ods of noise.
