hi, I asked about diet and exercise
can you give a rough idea of the kinds of food and drink you consume on a daily basis?
I suspect some basic changes might do more good than a weight loss pill product.
given that your diet has been poor, you could consider researching nutritional contributors to vertigo (eg vitamin d3 - very common)
you could possibly ask for a few blood tests, eg serum 25(OH)vitaminD3
Vitamin D deficiency and benign paroxysmal positioning vertigohttp://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 7712005105
"... in a small retrospective pilot study, 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in serum of patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and frequency of recurrence after correction of serum level were assessed retrospectively. ... Vertigo attacks did not recur after supplementation with vitamin D."
they can also have low ferritin, magnesium, copper and zinc - but in this next study only plasma iron is significantly lower compared to controls (this is an odd study because everyone's levels of copper mag and zinc look bad to me, and I am not sure why they used plasma iron and not serum ferritin...).
"Evaluation of oxidative status and trace elements in patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo" (ugh just search google for that one. the link is ridiculous but there is a pdf link to full text)
couldn't hurt to ask for tests of serum ferritin too. and serum magnesium, zinc and copper if you feel ambitious
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
