allergy AND Meniere’s disease.

Allergies of the nervous system cause diverse behavioral disturbances, including headaches, vertigo, migraines convulsions, learning disabilities, schizophrenia and depression. Some of the biological mechanisms have been established by research; others remain to be explored. Effective diagnosis and treatment include the elimination diet, followed by dietary rotation and avoidance of offending substances.

Ménière’s disease (MD), which by definition is idiopathic, has been ascribed to various causes, including both inhalant and food allergies. Patients with MD report higher rates of allergy history and positive skin or in vitro tests compared to a control group of patients with other otologic diseases and to the general public.

Recent immunologic studies have shown higher rates of circulating immune complexes, CD4, and other immunologic components in patients with MD compared to normal controls. Published treatment results have shown benefit from immunotherapy and/or dietary restriction for symptoms of MD in patients with both allergy and MD.
