Recently, our very own Dr. Hillary Carter was interviewed about hearing loss on Healthy Living for Life, a weekly series from Mountain-Pacific Quality Health. The topics ran the gamut, but here’s a sampling of what you’ll find if you check out the video.

We’re all familiar with permanent hearing loss from loud noise or aging, but did you know simply getting your ears cleaned can help your hearing? From wax buildup to swimmer’s ear, there are plenty of ways to experience temporary, easily treatable hearing loss.

Dr. Carter gives you specific examples about what types of noises are safe and why. She also discusses two public health issues that you might be surprised can affect your hearing. Plus, she provides tips for protecting your hearing, whether you’re a sports fan, music lover, or hunter.
