He is suffering from Vertigo, Dizziness and psychiatric problem(depression, anxiety). Now Experts from Vellore has given him dosage on Vertin 48 mg once daily for 3 weeks. He has also been advised to take help of Neurologist for Posterior Third Ventricular Calcification but CMC has not given any medicine on that. He has also consulted Pshychitist and they have advised medicines for 6 months. He has also high colestoral. Please advise diet chart. Please advise on this.
Doctor:I don't think you have any specific diet chart for acute vestibular syndromes. Here the symptoms are usually aggravated with sudden change of posture.
User:no Sir, For control of High colesterol he has been advised such
Doctor:You wanted advice regarding the vestibular syndrome or about ventricular calcification.
Doctor:Cholesterol, body weight and the amount of calorie consumption are related.

User:okay sir.. Please advise me on ventricular calcification. What is this and how much is it harmful related to Vestibular and Brain function and what is the remedy on it.
Doctor:Regarding ventricular calcification do not cause any serious medical concerns.
Doctor:I think this was MRI finding noted and not the clinical diagnosis of the patient.
User:yes Sir. I can send you the reports if you can share your e-mail id
User:They have advised on HRCT of Temporal Bone
Doctor:Before you do that, may I know if the MRI was done as a part of vertigo evaluation or did he have any other symptoms (apart from the ones you mentioned earlier)?
User:yes related to vertigo
User:as part of vertigo evaluation
Doctor:Ventricular calcification over the posterior third ventricle is usually a benign condition causing no major symptoms.
Doctor:Rarely it can be suspicious.
Doctor:That probably was the reason why he was referred to a neurologist.
Doctor:Now that the neurologist ruled out any suspicious pathology, this third ventricular calcification needs not treatment (except may be for wait and watch process).
Doctor:HRCT of temporal bone however is more important to understand if there is any nerve problems along the vestibular nerve.
Doctor:Such nerve problems can be causing his vertigo symptoms.
Doctor:Therefore, please do not be concerned about the posterior third ventricular calcification.
Doctor:That being said, at this point of time, I don't think it needs to be treated.
Doctor:Have you followed?
User:okay Sir. This is wonderful advise. But kindly review all his prescriptions and suggest on this basis findings from CMC Team. He has been given Vertin 48 Mg thrice daily. I can share you reports as this facilty is not available online
