Mixed hearing loss

As the name suggests this type of hearing loss is a combination of the two types we have discussed above.

Cause

It commonly occurs when one condition compounds itself on the other for example you have an infection in the ear and you start losing you hearing through old age.

Symptoms

The symptoms are just a combination of what we have discussed for both of the other types.

Treatment

Treatment will depend if the main cause is either the first or the second type of hearing loss, if its the first you could use hearing aid etc and if its the second a medical or surgical operation could be performed.
