Thank you for all the E-mail 
I received about the possible treatments for Sudden Hearing Loss.  They 
were all very helpful, but if no one minds, I'd like to give you all a 
little more information in case any of you can help me, because we are 
all really at a loss for what to do.  Once again, my father is under 50, 
he has diabetes (He is losing his vision also) and two weeks ago he lost 
his hearing completely in one ear. and partially in the other (Higher 
frequency - girls' voices).  At the same time he experienced dizziness so 
that he could not sitt up, so he did not go to a doctor right away.  Whan 
the dizziness passed (2-3 days)  he saw the doctor and was put on a 
steroid treatment (It didn't work).  Now he is on diaside (?) and anpther 
drug.  He has seen an ENT but he dosn't know all that much about this 
sort of thing.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Or know of any 
alternative treatments, or places to go for consultations (ANYWHERE), or 
if there is any chance of him regaining his hearing after two weeks?  

ANY answers at are would be greatly appreciated, because we really do not 
know what to do.  Thank you all.
