Meniere’s Disease Related to Allergies

by Dr. Rachel Lynch on October 5, 2018

Do you suffer from Meniere’s Disease?  How about allergies?  The office of McCool and Bhuta ENT attended a speaking engagement on current allergy topics.  One topic was the research that has been done on allergy patients suffering from Meniere’s Disease.  Allergies that start in childhood and are not present to adulthood have shown a relationship with Meniere’s.  Endolymph fluid in the inner ear can become imbalanced and cause a feeling of fullness, dizziness, and hearing symptoms.  Allergy symptoms can cause the same reactions to the endolymph function.  If you suffer from allergies and have ear symptoms you may need to see an Ear doctor to determine the root of the problem.  Happy Hearing!

Devices Affecting Children’s Hearing

by Dr. Rachel Lynch on August 30, 2018


Listening devices causing hearing loss in young children? If you’re like any parent at some point you have let your child use a listening device with headphones to listen to music, watch a video, or play on your phone.  However, the volume may have not been regulated while the child listens to their favorite show or music.  Research was recently conducted on children who listen to devices compared to children who do not use devices.  The children who listened to iphones, ipads, or music were twice as likely to have hearing loss.    Listening to sounds at high volumes can affect children even at a young age.  It is our job to make sure that our child is not doing damage to their hearing.  Happy Hearing!
