Cochlear Otospongiosis Treatment
Cochlear Otospongiosis, also known as otosclerosis, is an abnormal growth of bone near the middle and inner ear. The common result is, unfortunately, hearing loss. You are highly likely to inherit this disease if one of your parents suffered from it. This is when the bones become knit together and form an immovable mass. Thus, they can’t transmit sound as well as when they are more flexible. The disease in its early stages is referred to as otospongiosis; as it progresses, it is called otosclerosis. Did you know hearing loss starts as early as between the ages of 10 and 30? As adults age, their hearing declines. Mericon Industries is here to help with Cochlear Otospongiosis Treatment.
Treating Hearing Loss
Hearing loss is more common than you may think: one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, with half of those older than 75 suffering from difficulty hearing. Even though otosclerosis doesn’t have to be treated, there are a few possibilities you can engage in:
Medical treatment such as sodium fluoride – a dietary supplement, not a drug. We sell both Florical and Monocal, two fluoride preparations available over the counter. Typical doses include one tablet three times a day (Florical) and one to two tablets three times a day (Monocal).
Surgery, called stapedectomy – while effective at restoring hearing, it doesn’t improve the sensory component or the vertigo that is often times associated with otosclerosis.
Talk to your doctor about the best course of action for you in terms of Cochlear Otospongiosis Treatment. In addition, keep up with regular hearing tests so your doctor can determine if your hearing is declining.
