She said, "Meniere’s disease (MD) a challenging disorder to live with but there are a number of medical and surgical treatments to control the symptoms. Hearing loss does fluctuate in the disease, as Mr. Lewis experienced. Many patients are able to effectively use hearing aids in the MD ear. The balance symptoms of MD are often controlled with a low sodium diet and diuretic. If these conservative measures do not work, other procedures are available to help control symptoms."
