Explanations for the cause of hearing loss often remain silent. We at Albuquerque Speech Language Hearing Center split two causes into two categories. First, a conductive hearing loss, which is generally caused by some sort of pathogen, such as an ear infection or a more serious Eustachian tube dysfunction. The second cause is categorized as a Sensorineural hearing loss, which is generally biological. Although this is a much more serious case, it can be treated with a hearing aid.
