Sodium management for Meniere’s disease sufferers

Balancing Sodium Intake with Meniere’s

If you think salt isn’t a problem if you have Meniere’s disease or if you are struggling to manage your salt (sodium ) intake to help reduce your Meniere’s Disease symptoms, here is an article with some good advice and a slightly shocking (in terms of the amount we are all consuming – for everyone) video.

Personally, when I suffered from Meniere’s ( I no longer have it) I never counted the mgs, as some doctors will advise, but I never added salt to my meals at the table. If I ever did eat junk food (not a good idea if you have Meniere’s ) I always asked for no added salt on my fries. And generally I tried not to eat salty food.

Sodium is an essential mineral for life however. The trick is finding balance. To read more about how you can balance your intake of salt, reduce your Meniere’s symptoms and still benefit from the need for sodium read here:

I read your opinion on fillings being the cause or Meniere’s and I have to disagree, unless of course you can convince me otherwise. I am only 22 years old and after four years of trying to figure out my medical problems the doctors finally landed on Meniere’s. I have no fillings….

Jen, “amalgam” fillings is only one of many possible causes for Meniere’s type symptoms. There are many possibilities and dental problems like amalgam, root canal work, misaligned jaws are only some of them. They are varied and they are many. It is all about finding your own triggers and causes. Could be allergies in food or the air, chemicals, drugs, mold, neck and spinal problems, autoimmune problems, viral….you just need to open up your mind to the possibilities and explore them. I will be posting an interview I did recently with a nurse who spends a lot of time on this so look out for th in the near future….

Greetings! Very helpful advice in this particular post! It is the
little changes that will make the most significant changes.

Many thanks for sharing!

I have had Meniere’s all my life, bilaterally apparently. Mostly I knew it because of fairly rare but very severe sickening attacks of violently “spinning room”, first one way and then the other, up to tens of minutes at a time; plus the tinnitus, but that rarely too bothersome (guess I’m used to it).

About 4 years ago at age 65 it started getting very very much worse, and has been somewhat to severely disabling since then (variable). Tonight I began a characteristic severe attack (they can last days): extreme disorientation, extreme fatigue & depression, nausea, hoplessness, sonic sensitivity, etc.

As I have at other times when it’s severe of late, tonight I have the feeling that my teeth hurt. The thing is, I don’t have any teeth (I again reminded myself tonight) … I had them all removed, for dentures (periodontal problems) … FOUR YEARS AGO.

Having had this problem repeatedly, tonight it all added up and a search led me here.

I presume that, in many cases as with me, persons have Meniere’s, but for them it is “sub-clinical”, and subsequently they have some dental procedure that worsens the matter, as apparently was the case with me. I acknowledge that Meniere’s might also arise de novo from dental work, but I wonder if in many, most, or even all there is not a predisposition.

Well, here’s hoping that we get some progress with treatment efforts soon.
