Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease (AIED) is a baffling condition to treat. Sometimes it occurs as the result of untreated allergies. One man explained,
After undergoing steroids and all sorts of medical treatment with no results, I finally heard about allergies being a cause of AIED. After being tested, I found I have terrible environmental and food allergies. Allergy shots have really helped and I am improving now. I also found that in my case, MSG (monosodium glutamate) and various food additives cause attacks of hearing loss and tinnitus. These substances can cause immune system dysfunction. The more you stay away from such things, the better you feel. Your body doesn’t turn on itself for no good reason–it has a little help! Please pass this information along to other people who suffer this horrible agony.
If you have been diagnosed with AIED, make such you see a good allergist and have yourself checked out for allergies that might be the underlying cause. If so, treating your allergies may bring your AIED under control without any other treatment needed.
