    Planing on getting CI

    I am looking into a CI also. Haven’t gone to do the eval yet. Need to get an ABR done first. I’m looking at AB though since their HiRes 3D implant works with MRIs up to 3 Tesla which I do get on a semi regular basis. This was important for me. At one point I was looking at cochlear but AB had...

    head set reccomendation

    I have a set from starkey that my work got me. It's a binaural headset as well instead of a monaural. I can turn it up a lot louder so it drowns out the background noise.

    So 6 months ago I was dx with type 1 diabetes and it's been hell trying to control my blood glucose numbers and keeping them all the time in a good range. I went on a cruise not long ago and that was basically a sh*tshow of trying to keep good numbers and limit my food intake. I check my blood...

    What I'm getting is NOT a standard glucose meter. It is a CONTINUOUS glucose monitor. You wear a sensor and the sensor checks your blood glucose levels every 5 min. There's a reason I put the links in for people to read because it's not just a regular meter and a regular meter wouldn't cost...

    Oh definitely not! There's a lot of medical devices that our health system doesn't cover. My hearing aids for example are not covered only given a certain amt per ear as a discount. My grandfather uses a CPAP machine and same thing only a certain amt is given as a discount. He actually buys his...

    Hey everyone! As some of you know I have type 1 diabetes. Keeping my blood sugars in a good range is pretty hard sometimes. I don't feel low blood sugars most of the time and something called a continuous glucose monitor would help me with that by alerting me of low and high blood sugars...

    Could ABR Tests not be correct at times?

    This happened to me..had the ABR and it didn't show nearly as much of a hearing loss which is why I was having a hard time getting the CI. CI audi pretty much said (first time) I was faking how bad my hearing loss was ...needless to say she got a NASTY letter from my audi!

    I hate advanced bionics

    DrPhil is in canada NOT the US so things could be different. Also he hasn't been implanted as long as you either so I'm not sure if you may have gotten a letter a LONG time ago and maybe the offer doesn't stand anymore for batteries etc. Can you not try and go through a 3rd party company for the...

    New Naida Q

    So I got the new Naida Q70 UP today! It does sound much better than the SP and better than the Core UP I have. I can't tell much difference yet since everything was a bit loud today. I haven't work a hearing aid in that ear since around christmas :/ I go back in 2 weeks for a follow up fitting :)
