Alberta Premier Alison Redford says she has been losing hearing in her right ear over the past 18 months.

Redford, who is 48, told reporters that it's at the point where she's now "almost deaf" in that ear.

She says she just got an appointment Wednesday with a specialist in Calgary after trying for more than a year.

Redford says she hopes the specialist can fix it so she can hear again in that ear.

She did not say what she thinks may have caused the hearing loss.
