According to a study published in The Lancet Commissions (Lancet. 2017 Dec 16;390:2673-2734).
Common symptoms of both dementia and hearing loss align, including confusion during conversation, changes in methods of communicating, difficulty completing everyday tasks, and feelings of fatigue or stress. As a result, hearing loss can be misdiagnosed as dementia or make the symptoms of dementia appear worse, and research has found that hearing aid use was positively associated with episodic memory scores, with a potential mitigating effect on the trajectories of cognitive decline later in life. Despite correlational evidence between the two conditions, work remains to identify causal factors to link hearing loss and dementia.
