Dizziness Treatments

Dizziness: Treatments Inroduction

Treatment plans for dizziness are individualized depending on the cause, the presence of coexisting diseases, the age of the patient, and other factors. Treatment generally involves a multifaceted plan that addresses the underlying or associated cause and helps to minimize the abnormal sensations and discomfort of dizziness so that a person can lead an active normal life.

Some common causes of dizziness, such as standing up too fast, can often be effectively treated with relatively simple measures, such as lying back down and getting up slowly. Another common cause of dizziness, low blood sugar or hypoglycemia, can be simply treated by ensuring that a person has eaten enough or by administering glucose. The dizziness of dehydration is treated by ensuring sufficient fluid and electrolyte intake. Dizziness due to hyperventilation or an anxiety attack generally resolves by itself after the attack has passed.

Other more serious causes of dizziness, such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, and shock or anemia need more intensive treatment. This may involve medications, blood transfusions, regular medical monitoring, surgical procedures, lifestyle and dietary changes, hospitalization and life support measures.
