I recently purchased a book by Dr. Seidman about what we can do to prevent hearing loss. After getting a good backgroud understanding of the auditory system I realized that some of the self management techniques could be tailored to any chronic condition. Diet, supplements, exercise, stress management, etc. My question is this. Is there a way to really slow down hearing loss? Also does increased hearing loss always translate into louder tinnitus?

Yes.  Avoid places where the sound level is so loud that you must raise your own voice in order to be heard by a person standing next to you.  (Or be sure to use ear protection if you do find yourself in such an environment.)

No.  If that were true, everybody's tinnitus would get louder over time (because everybody's hearing gradually deteriorates over time), and the fact is that most people's tinnitus does not get louder over time.
