Meniere's Disease Overview
By: DCHours

Course Description

Meniere’s disease affects about 73 of 100,000 Americans. Meniere’s disease is hard to diagnose with certainty; treatment is symptomatic and not always effective. Meniere’s can produce a wide range of symptoms, including vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, aural fullness, and visual difficulties. Despite these challenges, an astute healthcare provider’s prompt recognition, appropriate treatment, and patient education can make a difference in a patient’s hearing, balance, and quality of life. 


This module describes Meniere’s disease, its symptoms, and its treatments. Vertigo is more than a Hitchcock movie. It’s the common symptom of an unpredictable condition — Meniere’s disease — that affects about 73 of 100,000 Americans.1 Vertigo can be key to recognizing this chronic, incurable problem. What Meniere’s is and what causes it are nearly as mysterious now as when it was first described 150 years ago. Diagnosis and treatment can be difficult and fraught with trial and error. Despite these challenges, an astute health practitioner’s prompt recognition, appropriate treatment, and patient education can make a difference in a patient’s hearing, balance, and quality of life.
