Secondary Prevention

  • Hearing loss is likely to be permanent. Counseling and education to increase coping skills can be helpful. Learning new skills such as lip reading or sign language and getting hearing aids may help. Young men with Alport syndrome should use hearing protection in noisy environments.
  • Genetic counselling may be recommended because the disorder is inherited.
