Is there a cure for hearing loss besides wearing hearing aids?

Is there a cure for hearing loss besides wearing hearing aids? I have no ear problems at all, could be caused by age. Perhaps mentioning that problem to my doctor, internal medicine, on my next visit later this month might be a good idea. My only health problem is high blood pressure, controlled by medication.

Currently, hearing aids and cochlear implants are the best treatments for hearing loss.

The most common treatment is with hearing aids.

Since most hearing loss involves both ears, wearing two hearing aids gives your brain the information it needs, so you won’t have to strain so hard to hear.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
