Expatriate healthcare insurance customers might want to keep a close eye on their hearing, after research has suggested that people who lose their hearing are significantly more likely to develop dementia.
The study was conducted by the John Hopkins Medicine and the National Institute on Ageing.
Following the publication of the study, Lorraine Gaily, chief executive of Hearing Link, said that this could prove a "huge economic factor to bring into play", which would encourage healthcare organisations to increase the importance of hearing loss.
Ms Gaily added that people should take more care of their hearing since it is inevitable that exposure to loud noises for a short or long period of time will lead to damaged hearing.
She added: "One of the early signs [of hearing loss] is just becoming aware that you can't hear people speaking as clearly as you used to, struggling a little bit to make out what people are saying, and feeling frustrated because background noise seems to be much louder than it used to be."
