Tinnitus diuretic therapy, homeopathic treatment for ear ringing tinnitus - Review

Author: admin
Tinnitus patients “hear” distinct tones in the absence of real sounds, a perceptual phenomenon that detrimentally affects their concentration, sleep and mental wellbeing. The experience of tinnitus has been linked to spontaneous firing of the auditory nerve cells a hyperactivity in the brain observed after hearing loss. Mulders’ research suggests furosemide is only therapeutically effective in the first six weeks after hearing loss, when auditory neurons appear hyper-excitable.
Mulders conducted the research using her well-established experimental animal model for tinnitus research, which involved guinea pigs deafened on one side. To identify animals demonstrating tinnitus after the acoustic injury, Mulders studied the sensitivity of their natural alarm reaction to a sudden loud noise, the startle pulse in the gap pre-pulse inhibition (GPPI) test.


According to Mulders, those animals with unaffected startle behavior in the GPPI reacted this way because they perceived sound even in its absence — the defining characteristic of tinnitus. Electrophysiological measures of enhanced spontaneous firing of auditory neurons in the absence of sound further linked hyperactivity in the auditory pathways to the experience of tinnitus in these animals. Helmy Mulders of UWA’s Auditory Laboratory investigated the efficacy of treating tinnitus in animals using furosemide, a diuretic drug usually prescribed to reduce swelling and water retention. Peter Friedland from UWA’s Ear Sciences Centre to test the furosemide effect in volunteer patients with tinnitus. Loop diuretics such as Edecrin should be used in low doses and with caution because they are ototoxic.


Psychological characteristics of patients with Meniere's disease compared with patients with vertigo, tinnitus or hearing loss.
Van Deelen and Huizing studied the use of diuretics in Meniere's disease in a double-blind, placebo controlled trial, and reported that it reduces vestibular complaints, but has no significant effect on hearing (1986).
