Abstract

RESTRICTION OF CAFFEINE INTAKE FOR THE TREATMENT OF MENIERE'S DISEASE

Minnu George*, Prothibha Das*, Soji S.* and Anjali C. S.*

ABSTRACT

Meniere’s disease (MD) is a condition that causes hearing loss, dizziness/vertigo, ear pressure/fullness, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). MD is an idiopathic disorder of the inner ear. Endolymphatic dropsy (EO) of the inner ear is currently considered to be the pathophysiological mechanism underlying typical symptoms of MS. First-line treatment usually includes dietary changes, such as a low-salt diet and reduced daily intake of alcohol and caffeine. Although some studies have shown a positive effect of these dietary restrictions, even in preventing recurrence, there is currently no uniform consensus on their usefulness. The studies on restriction of caffeine intake for MD therapy are still conducting inorder to determine the exact mechanism.

Keywords: Meniere disease(MD), vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus.
