Thread: Sodium Fluoride

  1. Default Sodium Fluoride

    I have read it before and read it here, that Sodium fluoride can be a treatment for Otosclerosis. Could someone explain how is this treatment done? Is it a prescription drug? How much did it help you?

    Thanks

    Hi there
    It's probably best not take sodium fluoride as it can be toxic if over done. I think you will find that sodium fluoride is associated with tooth emamel and is usually in the tap water you drink.
    Otosclerosis is a boney growth affecting the joints of the ossiccular chain (the three little bones in the middle ear).
    I explain Otosclerosis to my customers as a bit like arthritis on your ear bones. The best treatment has to be decided case by case by an ENT.
    Regards

    Search for some of the older threads where this subject has been discussed extensively.

    I have severe otosclerosis (3 stapedotomys). My internationally recognized ear doctor/surgon recommended Monocal Ca+Fl supplement to slow progression, and I've been taking 1 tablet per day for many years.

    My own research indicates: potential benefit for those with otosclerosis far outweighs potential ill effects.

    Not being funny, but if Monocal Ca + Fl is so good, how come you've needed 3 stapedotomys?
    otosclerosis is a calcium build up, so why introduce more of the stuff?

    Go to an ENT to see if it will help before taking Sodium Floride as it said earlier it can be toxic if over done.

    Another caution: All situations are not the same. My ENT had me on Sodium Fluoride. When my Cardiologist became aware of this, the two of them talked and decided that to NOT take Sodium Fluoride would be in my best interest.

    I seriously doubt he knew about Monocal Ca + Fl before his stapedectomies, The disease is a long time progression before stapedectomy.

    My international recognized surgeon prescribed Florical + 400 iu Vitamin D after my two stapedectomies last year. He gave me up to 50 DB in one ear and up to 55 DB in the other, I am following his directions......................

    Sodium fluoride in otosclerosis treatment: review.

    Cruise AS, Singh A, Quiney RE.

    Department of Otolaryngology, Royal Free Hospital, London, UK. mr.andrew.cruise@gmail.com

    Abstract

    OBJECTIVES:

    To review the current literature on the use of sodium fluoride in the treatment of otosclerosis.
    DESIGN:

    A literature review was conducted, searching the Medline and PubMed database from 1966 to 2009, using the terms 'otosclerosis' and 'fluoride'. Article abstracts were reviewed and relevant full articles acquired.
    RESULTS:

    There has been only one double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of the use of sodium fluoride in otosclerosis patients, and this found a reduced incidence of deterioration in hearing after two years in the treatment group. Several case-control series have described a hearing benefit in the sodium fluoride treated group. Treatment doses vary greatly, and there is no evidence regarding the optimum duration of treatment.
    CONCLUSIONS:

    There is low quality evidence suggesting that sodium fluoride may be of benefit to preserve hearing and reduce vestibular symptoms in patients with otosclerosis.
