This was a great question asked in relation to a patient hearing about a loved one having Menieres. He shared how this family member, with menieres and the combined symptoms of unsteadiness and vertigo, hearing loss, as well as tinnitus with roaring sounds being heard, was having so many negative life affects. In relation to the hearing loss, and as the other varying symptoms are managed, we can best assist the hearing concerns with digital hearing aid technology.
We chatted about how those with Menieres may have a fluctuating hearing loss, and how we can create various hearing programs to help when the hearing changes. In addition, the digital hearing aids can allow for tinnitus management. The vestibular and dizziness concerns can best be addressed by the medical professional with various medications as well as addressing general areas of health. We can have hope, that once the patient with Menieres, is both medically and Audiological managed, that they can improve in many areas. The hearing concerns are quite successful with digital hearing aids.
It’s fascinating to see how lives improve with hearing others…especially during the holidays!
