So, let’s talk about genetics and hearing loss.
People often ask, “how did I get my hearing loss? Can it be from genetics?”. The answer to that question is yes.
Studies show that 35-55% of all hearing losses have some genetic relation. Now, does that mean that if a family member has hearing loss that you’re automatically going to have hearing loss?
Not necessarily, but some genetic forms do run-in families, and some genetic forms can be a pre-curser to adulthood early-onset hearing loss.
Some genetic forms can be profound hearing loss that runs in families. There are now numerous studies that are beginning to identify types of genetic hearing loss.
