had my follow-up with my ENT.He
reviewed my hearing tests and stated that at this point we will continue with
the low sodium diet.He stated that
there are several ways to treat the disease and over time the effectiveness of
each treatment can diminish. He stated
that once the low sodium no longer gives positive results then he will put me
on a diuretic.After that eardrum
injections and lastly – surgery.
stated that several people have had success with Acyclovir and asked if that
would be something for me to try and he said no.He stated that there is no known cure and
although some people may have had success it’s not successful for all.In several studies of cadavers and double
blind studies nothing has stood out pointing to a viral infection causing
that the University of Iowa is leading in Meniere’s research.He stated that they do several research
studies but mainly with people who’s Meniere’s has advanced. He also stated Dr. Rauch in Boston is well known for treating people with Meniere's.
that I’m lucky we caught and diagnosed it early.And that we will continue to monitor it.
once my hearing starts to deteriorate then he will refer me to a Doctor at the
Hearing and Balance Institute in North Florida.I’m hoping that won’t happen :)
continuing with my upper cervical care and natural supplements to help treat
the symptoms and hopefully slow the hearing loss.
point I’m having good and bad days but more good days so that is keeping me hopeful!
