Connect Hearing is the the exclusive national hearing health partner of Diabetes Canada. Studies show that hearing loss is twice as common in people who have diabetes than in those who don’t.

Hearing aids: Myth vs. Fact
Hearing loss affects one in five Canadians, however, only 12% of them actually wear hearing aids according to this study by Stats Canada. So why don’t more people actually take action on their hearing loss? Here are some common hearing aid myths that could be holding you back from addressing something that so dearly impacts your life.
4 ways hearing aids can quickly improve your quality of life
The decision to purchase hearing aids usually comes from years of avoiding hearing loss and then finally realizing it’s bad enough that you need to do something. But it doesn’t have to be like that.
Technology and performance options
Modern hearing aid technology may surprise you. Small and sleek, modern digital hearing aids have a built-in microchip. Using software, they are programmed to your individual hearing needs. It can be confusing, however, what exactly is meant when your hearing care professional recommends a hearing solution for you at the "standard performance level". Here, we explore the different levels of hearing technology at Connect Hearing and provide context for you in order to make an informed decision on your hearing care solutions.
Confronting the stigma: here’s why needing hearing aids isn’t a bad thing
It’s no secret that the average person waits up to a decade before they decide to do something about their hearing loss and the stigma surrounding hearing aids is one of the leading factors. Many people suffering from hearing loss feel they don’t need hearing help, they convince themselves their hearing isn't that bad, they think hearing aids are ugly plastic looking things, or perhaps they feel embarrassed and self-conscious about needing help. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s OK to need hearing aids, and here’s why.

Diabetes and hearing loss? We speak with many people who don’t realize there’s a link between the two.
Is ear candling a safe and effective way to clean my ears?
We are often asked about ear candling as a way to clean ears. Does it work, and do you really even need to clean your ears? We do recommend that anyone who is concerned about their hearing or feels they may need wax removed from their ears consult a Hearing Care Professional for a thorough assessment before doing anything to their ears.
Invisible-in-Canal (Lyric)
Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aids like the Lyric are worn deep in the ear canal. IICs are inserted directly into the ear canal and can be easily removed with a string. These hearing aids are a good choice if you lead a moderately to heavily active lifestyle—or if you do not want your hearing aids to be visible to others. While they are popular among hearing aid wearers, IICs may not be the best choice for users with more severe or profound hearing loss, since these hearing aids do not provide the same amount of power that other, larger models do.
