Aldosterone: New Treatment for Hearing Loss and Meniere's Disease
Answers to Your Questions about Hearing Loss Issues
Aldosteroneâ€”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:
This is great news for people with hearing loss from AIED (autoimmune inner ear disease), people with Meniere’s disease and people who are losing their hearing as a result of aging (presbycusis)!
Aldosterone is a naturally-occurring hormone (technically a mineralocorticoid [steroid]) made in our adrenal glands. It plays an important part in regulating our sodium and potassium levelsâ€”both critical for normal hearing. Unfortunately, as we age (that means you and me brother), not only do our potassium levels drop, but so do our aldosterone levels. This results in some hearing loss. Furthermore, some people have below normal levels of aldosterone in the first place, and thus, they too have hearing problems.
Researchers have discovered there is a direct link between blood levels of aldosterone and our ability to hear normally. Thus, for people with lower than normal aldosterone levels, taking bio-identical aldosterone supplements can help restore their hearing, and even help with related issues (balance, recruitment, discrimination, etc.).
If you want to know more about aldosterone therapy and where you can get bio-identical aldosterone, check out the easy-to-read article “ Take Control of Your Hearing Loss Before It’s Too Late ” by Dr. Jonathan Wright.

Meniere's Disease and Balance Problems
Answers to Your Questions about Hearing Loss Issues
Meniere’s Disease and Balance Problems
by Neil Bauman, Ph.D.
A lady wrote:
Meniere’s disease can indeed damage the balance system in your ears. However, even totally destroying this balance system (called the vestibular system) doesn’t leave you flopping around on the floor like a jellyfish. This is because we have, not one, but three separate balance systems. Thus when one quits working properly, our brains rely more on the other two to help keep us balanced.
You can read about our three balance systems (vestibular system, visual system and proprioceptive system) and how they all work together to keep us upright in my article at http://www.hearinglosshelp.com/articles/balancesystem.htm .
Furthermore, each of these balance systems consist of two (redundant) subsystems. For example, there is a separate vestibular (balance) system in each of our inner ears. Thus, if one side is damaged or destroyed, the other side takes over and allows us to keep our balance.
In fact, this is exactly what happens in the vast majority of people with Meniere’s disease. Meniere’s disease typically only attacks one ear. Thus, most people with Meniere’s, unless they are having a severe vertigo attack where they can’t even sit up, use whatever balance systems are still working and manage to get around reasonably well. Their brains learn to adapt and pay more attention to any balance system information that is still reliable.
However, people with damaged vestibular systems are not as steady on their feet as they once were. In fact, if the damage is severe in both ears, they may lurch and stagger–much like the proverbial “drunken sailor.” Such people often use canes or walking sticks to help steady themselves. Even so, I don’t know of any that are confined to wheelchairs solely because of their Meniere’s.
If you have damaged both vestibular systems, you will have a much more difficult time when it is dark (when you can’t use your eyes effectively) or when walking on uneven or soft ground (which messes up your proprioceptive system). Under such conditions you may have to “hang on” to a wall or another person.
