Hearing loss is not just caused by aging, but something that's showing up more frequently in people of all ages.

"Noise-induced hearing loss" is the second most common cause of hearing loss, and there are things we're doing each day that could be contributing to this problem. 

Julie Norin is a board certified audiologist and director of audiology at The Hearing and Speech Agency, which provides hearing and speech services to people with a broad range of communication challenges, from newborn to elderly. She joined ABC2's In Focus to discuss the signs and treatments for hearing loss.
