There is no cure for Ménière's disease. Over time, some degree of permanent hearing loss is common.
However, the worst symptoms of vertigo, nausea and vomiting often can be controlled. By working closely with their physicians, people with Ménière's disease often can find the right combination of lifestyle changes and medication to reduce the frequency and severity of attacks. Patients with severe, disabling symptoms may get relief with surgery, but the risks and benefits need to be weighed carefully.
