    Ongoing hearing problems in child

    My child has had hearing loss from a young age (was born prem at 28 weeks) and often experienced fluid in the ears. She has not had a normal hearing check in the last 5 years (she's currently 6.5 years). She has had 2 lots of grommets. The last one was about 3 years ago.

    Her most recent hearing test showed a mild conductive hearing loss bilaterally (with no change since July 2018). Impedance audiometry was consistent with significant eustachian tube dysfunction bilaterally (which has been ongoing for years).

    What might your advice be? (We're currently waiting to see our ENT)
