Hello, I'm generally asking this question, I don't have hearing loss, just wanted to know. My mother has hearing loss of about 20% in her right ear, and the doc says that's why she got the T. 3 years ago, when she took the audio test, it showed she had about 12% hearing loss. Recently, a few months ago, it showed 20%. Does it keep going on at a standard rate, or are there no such rule? I'm really curious. And also, does the T get worse with more hearing loss? I guess it does. That's why some docs recommend hearing aids, yes? If anybody here is suffering from tinnitus due to hearing loss, how much has your hearing reduced over the past years?
