In brief: Meniere's ear

Meniere's typically affects one ear.
Available statistics suggest that over a 30 year period, the other ear can become affected in up to 50% of patients.

In brief: Both ears Meniere's

The likelihood of both ears being affected varies widely in studies, but a range of 1 in 3 to 2 in five is most commonly seen.
Always expect another diagnosis first.
