Vertigo, vestibular dysfunctioning, diabetes mellitus

Maruska D' Aparecida Santos, Roseli Saraiva Moreira Bittar
INTRODUCTION: Metabolic disorders are accepted by many authors as being responsible for balance disorders. Because of the importance of metabolic disorders in the field of labyrinthine dysfunction, we decided to assess the prevalence of carbohydrates, lipids and thyroid hormones disorders in our patients with vestibular diseases. MATERIAL AND METHOD: The study evaluates the metabolic profile of 325 patients with vertigo who sought the Otolaryngology Department of the University of São Paulo in the Hospital das Clínicas da Universidade de São Paulo...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Polygenic or multifactorial inheritance of chronic disorders (MICD) contribute to irreversible cochleovestibular impairment. Our aim was to determine the type and degree of cochleovestibular dysfunction (CVD) in patients with MICD. METHODS: Cross-sectional. We studied 385 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, systemic arterial hypertension and dyslipidemia who were referred to Otorhinolaryngology Unit with hearing and vestibular symptoms...

OBJECTIVE: To study the changes of vestibular function in patients with diabetes mellitus and its clinical significance. METHOD: Electronystagmography (ENG) was used to examine 76 patients with diabetes mellitus and 60 healthy adults subjects. After clinical detection of vestibular function including spontaneous nystagmus, positional test, head shaking nystagmus, neck torsion test, caloric test, and sensory organization tests which consist of gaze, saccade and smooth pursuit test, the results of these two groups were recorded for qualitative and quantitative statistical analysis...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the association between inner ear dysfunction and retinal vascular changes related to systemic arterial hypertension. DESIGN: A comparative, cross-sectional and observational study. SETTING: Primary care. MAIN OUTCOMES MEASURES: Hearing and vestibular symptoms evaluated by a standardized questionnaire; cochlear function evaluated by audiometry and distortion product otoacoustic emissions; vestibular function evaluated by oculomotor and bithermal caloric tests and vascular retinal compromise evaluated by ophthalmoscopy (according to the modified Scheie classification)...

This article reviews the impact of metabolic disorders on vestibular function. Diabetes mellitus is a disorder of glucose metabolism that can be associated with vestibular dysfunction. Vertigo can be alleviated by diet management in many cases. Elevated levels of blood lipids have been implicated in cochleovestibular disorders. Treatment with a lipid-lowering drug has resulted in improved auditory and vestibular function in a placebo-controlled trial. Hypothyroidism may affect different parts of the vestibular system depending on the severity and duration of thyroid deficiency...
