Aldosterone Revisited

by Neil Bauman, Ph.D.

In the March, 2008 issue, I reported on an interesting treatment for hearing loss. There has been a fair bit of interest in this treatment as evidenced by the various comments on the HearingLossHelp blog. You can read the original article and comments here .

In part, here is Rick Walter’s comment (#15) on what has been happening with his ears since he began taking Aldosterone two months ago. He writes:

I’ve been taking Aldosterone therapy for about 2 months now. My hearing loss came from many things. Much came from loud noise over my lifetime, but I came down with Meniere’s disease about a year ago, and the hearing loss greatly accelerated.

The Aldosterone gave me back clarity of hearing, but only a little volume. Make no mistake any improvement is huge when your ears are as bad as mine are. Also my drop attacks and weird dizziness are completely gone!

Obviously, Aldosterone is not a complete cure for hearing problems, but just improving clarity of hearing (improved discrimination) is a wonderful blessing in itself.

Also, it seems that Aldosterone can help fix a damaged balance system. For example, reducing the frequency of, or totally eliminating, drop attacks is certainly another blessing. (Drop attacks are where, without warning, you suddenly lose your balance and fall to the floor. This typically happens in people with severe cases of Meniere’s disease.)

If you are interested in Aldosterone therapy either contact Dr. Jonathan Wright (see above link) or work with your doctor while you are on this therapy so bad things don’t happen to you. With Aldosterone, as with other body hormones, too much of a good thing can quickly become a bad thing.

Aldosterone—A New Treatment for Hearing Loss and Meniere’s Disease?

by Neil Bauman, Ph.D.

I get some very interesting email at times. A man wrote:

I’m under the care of Dr. Jonathan Wright of the Tahoma Clinic in Renton WA. He’s been working with Professor Dennis Trune (U of OR Hearing Sciences Center) on an aldosterone therapy trial on a human patient. His previous research demonstrated that aldosterone added to mouse drinking water restores damaged hearing. Their first human patient has experienced cessation of further hearing loss plus a total stop of his vertigo (from Meniere’s).

I’ve been on the same treatment—125 mcg twice a day of compounded aldosterone for seven months. (I get the compounded aldosterone from a Canadian pharmacy.) To date, although my balance is still poor, I have recovered 30 dB (at 250Hz) in my...
