Age (presbycusis) due to the destruction of the hair cells located in the cochlea that happen naturally as we age. Chronic diseases such as diabetes causing nerve damage to the auditory nerve, or cochlear nerve. Fluctuating: Hearing impairment changes, bouncing back and forth between good and bad, due to infection or blockage.
Diagnosis:Diagnosis of hearing impairment is accomplished through a battery of hearing tests that determine the type of loss, location, and the amount of damage incurred.
Stem cell treatment: Still in the experimental stages of reproducing the hair cells in the cochlea, which are responsible for sending electrical impulses to the brain. Even though any type of discrimination against people with disabilities is against the law, it still happens to people who are hearing impaired.

When you go for your morning jog, you are striding toward firm legs, a thinner middle and a strong heart.
In a study at Miami University in Ohio, subjects who participated in 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercises two or three times a week found that their hearing actually improved. Though no one is sure just how fitness helps hearing, Helaine Alessio, associate professor of exercise physiology at Miami, suggests it may be due to the increased quality and quantity of blood flowing through the small organs of the inner ear. This benefit, however, has an absolute limit: The damaging effects of such things as frequent exposure to very loud noise will eventually cause hearing loss, even in highly fit individuals.

Tests include: MRI, CT scan, tuning fork (Rinne test), auditory hearing test, audiogram, and Hearing in Noise Test (HINT).

After two months of regular exercise, some of them doubled their ability to detect very faint sounds. Maaike Angevaren, the lead author of Netherlands-based study hints that physical activity increases blood flow to the brain thereby improving cognitive function, one of which is auditory attention and our ability to process the sound we hear.
So keep the music volume at a reasonable level when you’re working out and try to avoid places with extremely high noise levels if you are exercising outdoors or such streets and lanes if you are into walking and jogging. Another Netherlands-based study on a 55 plus age-group of people has found out that aerobic exercises tend to boost cognitive processing speed, memory functions and auditory and visual attention in healthy older people.
