Hearing loss can occur due to a variety of reasons, ranging from regular exposure to loud noise to a disease. In this article we will go over Meniere’s disease. A condition that affects the inner ear resulting in trouble with balance and loss of hearing.
Some of the causes of Meniere’s disease include suffering a head injury, a middle ear infection and syphilis. According to the National Center of Biotechnology (NCBI), Meniere’s disease can also occur due to allergies, the use of alcohol, smoking, stress, and an infection of the respiratory system, among others.
NCIB states that some of the signs and symptoms of this condition affecting your hearing health, include diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, severe nausea, vomiting, and sweating. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this disease, but there are ways, which can help improve this condition. These include the reduction of sodium in your diet, as well as taking water pills (diuretics) to reduce the fluid pressure in the inner ear.
For more information on this condition, contact your local New Generation Miami Hearing center, and make an appointment with an Audiologist.
