Senile Deafness

Deafness, which appears after the age of 65 to 70 or later is called senile deafness. It gradually increases with age and can lead to complete deafness. Deafness is called karnabadhirya in Ayurveda.

Causes:

Old age happens to be the chief cause of senile deafness. But not all aged people suffer from senile deafness. People getting exposed to loud noise during earlier years of life or due to their occupations are more prone to suffer from senile deafness. Degenerative changes in the nervous system may increase the possibility of deafness.

Symptoms

  1. Hearing loss
