Taking vitamins on a daily basis has become very popular for many folks and that is definitely a good thing. There also seems to be a lot of meniere’s sufferers that take vitamins as well. Does it help with the meniere’s, I don’t know but many think it does. We had some great comments recently about this same subject. In one comment vitamin B was discussed.
This is from JohnH …
Dr. Miles Atkinson was an otologist who did extensive research on Meniere's disease in the mid 20th century. I have only read snippets of his papers. I can not comment on the quality of his science. He was a faculty member at NYU. He believed that Meniere's had its roots in a chronic vitamin B complex deficiency which lead to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS is incredibly complex and could aid to explain the perplexing array of Meniere's symptoms and associations. Dr. Atkinson reported successful treatment of Meniere's patient's with high dose B vitamins. B vitamins are water soluble and B-12 are poorly absorbed via the GI tract.
That is really interesting although I don’t think that I have seen anyone else talking about vitamin B as something that controls or relieves Meniere’s disease.
You have to be careful taking vitamins and supplements always check with your doctor to see if there may be any potential problem.
