Meniere's Suitable Hearing Aids
Ménière's Treatment with Hearing aids can help those manage the condition when hearing loss is the result of ongoing attacks. We can help you identify the right hearing aid you'll need to effectively manage your impairment.
What Is Ménière's?
Ménière's disease is an uncommon condition that affects the function of the inner ear, leading to vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus and a build-up of pressure within the ear. It often manifests itself initially with sudden attacks, which can last for up to three hours at a time. In reality, it can take days to disappear completely. Over a protracted period, for some, vertigo may fade, however permanent issues with balance, hearing loss and tinnitus can remain or indeed get worse. The key thing to remember with this kind of disorder is that the symptoms and subsequent discomfort can vary hugely from one individual to another.
As each person's experience of Ménière's can differ widely, so can the solution, hence the need to speak to a specialist to ensure correct diagnosis of the situation. No one is absolutely sure about what causes Ménière's disease. Evidence indicates that you are at greater risk of suffering from the condition if there is a family history. It is also possible to suffer as a result of a chemical imbalance in your inner ear.
Although there isn't an existing cure for this problem, symptoms can be controlled by diet, exercise, and medication. In severe cases, surgery may be required. Our guide to Ménière's Disease explains further.
