hearing test results on tinnitus claim

VA Disability

A question for anyone who is familiar with hearing tests – the difference in my hearing between entry physical and ETS physical has one left ear frequency reading of 5db loss, the rest for both ears are all 15 or 20 db loss, but all within “normal” hearing range. I am not claiming hearing disability.

According to my denial letter, the C&P audiologist noted that  “no shift in audiometric thresholds were reported” .

How can they come to that conclusion when it is in my service records? My argument is that this indicates deterioration/hearing loss while active duty, they seem to disagree. 

What am I missing with this? Thanks!
