My daughter was diagnosed with Meniere's after one test. Personally, I don't think that was enough for a conclusive diabnosis, but that's not my question. She was told to follow a low-sodium diet and it's helped with her dizziness. However, she has some big events coming up and is wondering if consuming too much sodium will just make her feel bad OR if it could make her lose her hearing sooner. Pizza with friends might be worth a mild attack of vertigo, but it wouldn't be worth being totally deaf that much sooner. She's also concerned about going to college and dealing with cafeteria food and sodium.
Understand your predicament. But no measures will prevent Ménière disease, but she can take preventive measures to avoid or minimize attacks and consequences of attacks, like reducing salt in her diet, reduction of stress, quit smoking and avoidance of exposure to loud noises. o, she will have to take adequate precautions. Also, I would strongly caution her not to drive or operative heavy machinery while dizzy as she might injure herself or others.
