Battling SSHL (or Sudden Deafness) in Miami
SSHL (SenSineural Hearing Loss) in Miami
Sensorineural Hearing Loss (SSHL), or sudden deafness, is a rapid loss of hearing. SSHL can happen to a person all at once or over a period of time within a maximum 3 days. There are over 100 causes for rapid hearing loss, including infectious diseases, trauma, abnormal tissue growths, immunologic diseases, toxic causes, and toxic drugs. Certain antibiotics, certain diuretics and certain anti-cancer drugs are particularly damaging to your hearing and can result in SSHL. Some other causes include circulatory problems, neurological causes, and several types of disorders. People with SSHL should visit a physician immediately. One of the most common treatments for SSHL is steroids. The second most common treatment method is the introduction of a low salt diet. Researchers think that this diet can help people with SSHL and also hearing and balance disorders. Two things that help hearing function properly are good air and blood flow inside the ear, and as a result, most researchers think that SSHL occurs when important parts of the inner ear do not receive enough oxygen.
