Reuters (4/17, Rapaport) reports a recent research review suggests that “older adults with some form of hearing loss were 47 percent more likely to have symptoms of depression” than their peers without hearing difficulty. Researchers “analyzed data from 35 previous studies with a total of 147,148 participants who were at least 60 years old,” noting that the “connection between hearing loss and depression didn’t appear to be influenced by whether people used hearing aids.” The findings were published in The Gerontologist (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
