    The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) has put together the following questions to see if you should have your hearing evaluated.

    Do you have problems hearing while on the phone? Yes / No
    Do you have trouble following the conversation when two or more people are talking at the same time? Yes /No
    Do people complain that you turn the TV volume up too high? Yes / No
    Do you have to strain to understand conversation? Yes / No
    Do you have trouble hearing over a noisy background? Yes / No
    Do you find yourself asking people to repeat themselves? Yes / No
    Do many people you talk to seem to mumble? Yes / No
    Do you misunderstand what others are saying and respond inappropriately? Yes / No
    Do you have trouble understanding the speech of women and children? Yes / No
    Do people get annoyed because you misunderstand what they say? Yes / No

    If you answered “yes” to three or more of these questions, talk to your doctor about getting a hearing test.  Tens of millions of Americans have hearing loss.
