Tuesday Tip: Whether you are age 8 or 88, and whether or not you have noticed some hearing difficulties, you should have a baseline audiogram. A baseline test done now will reassure you if it turns out that you do not have appreciable hearing loss, and will also be available for comparison to test results obtained at some future date to track your hearing health. #BHSM
