My friend 18yr is havin type a bilaterally (bilateral sensorineural hearing loss) right ear is 20db-100db. Left ear is 20db-80db. Any suggestion to cure?

Consider hearing aid: Your numbers and description aren't quite right. I'm guessing there was a type a tympanogram, meaning no fluid and no conductive hearing loss. I'm guessing the there was an srt of 20 db in each ear, and an understanding score of 100% in the right ear and 80% on the left. The left ear needs further evaluation, recheck in 6 months. If having trouble hearing aids would be the best treatment. ...Read more

How do I improve my severe/profound sensorineural hearing loss naturally without the use of a hearing device?

No options: As the nerves in the inner ear are damaged and don't regenerate in mammals I am not aware of any herbal or nutritional treatment options. I assume that potentially treatable causes such as cochlear hydrops or autoimmune inner ear disease don't exist. Need to manage the loss and amplification is only option. Cochlear implants usually reserved for those who aren't benefitted with aids. ...Read more

Can't do much: If you are having problems with discrimination of words, that means you are developing neural degeneration of the cochlear nerve. You may have auto-immune sensori-neural hearing loss.

My 4 yr old was just diagnosed of unilateral sensorineural hearing loss. What's the chance that this is progressive? Will it get worse? How to stop

Depends:: The prognosis is better in patients who present early and young and who have mild hearing loss and to be worse in those with vertigo. After onset of disease, the patient should consult a physician as soon as possible for diagnosis and treatment. Then, predicting good prognosis in younger patients with mild hearing loss and no vestibular symptoms is possible. Etiology dictates treatment options! ...Read more
