It is really devastating when you lose your hearing sense as it is one of the important senses that the human needs in the daily life, but this type of hearing loss does not have a medical cure that is why it is permanently and only preventing is the only cure for this illness.
If you think that one of your family is suffering this kind of illness or might as well you are experiencing hearing loss or you are experiencing some of the symptoms like hearing bell ringing in your ear, having problem in hearing low tone conversation or having problem with the volume of the television better consult the expert for some diagnostic test.
