Progressive hearing loss, can it be stopped ??
For the past 6 months I have noticed a slow but progressive hearing loss in both ears. Audiology tests at ENT's the past 2 years indicate a hearing loss in  the 'normal range' from 500 to 3000 hz of about 50 db from 1000 to 1500 hz in both ears, and getting worse. Now it is 70 db in the 1000 to 1500 hz range. (Also have a constant pressure sensation in both ears.)
I used to take 400 mg ibuprophen daily for many years due to a torn rotator cuff , but quit taking it 2 years ago. I would think that the ototoxic effect of the ibuprophen would subside once the ibuprophen was discontinued.
What could be causing this continuous hearing loss?
Are there any supplements/vitamins that can aid in slowing hearing loss (like vitamin D3, Folic acid, zinc, what else?)
Thanks for any replies.

Has an ENT specialist seen these audiograms?  Have you been given a diagnosis?  For some types of hearing loss (Otosclerosis, for example) there are medical treatments that may slow or stop the progression.  However, the specific diagnosis must first be made.  Don't waste your money on "hearing rejuvenation products".  Get the facts and follow your doc's advice.

There are many possible causes of hearing loss, see an ENT.  As one possible cause, please consider food allergies, esp. type-3 "IgG" allergies (something most ENT's dismiss).  See my Journal entry for details on how I was cured.  I would esp. consider this if you react well to zinc, steroids or any other chemical or food that suppresses the auto-immune system.
