A Study to Observe Autonomic Parameters, Sleeping, and Eating Behavior in Patients with Vertigo
Keywords:Eating behavior, Sleep, Vertigo, Vestibular system
There are various diseases associated with the malfunctioning of vestibular system. One such disease is vertigo which is the most common peripheral vestibular disorder. There is a need to understand the links between sleeping and eating behavior in patients with vertigo. The present study was undertaken to observe the autonomic parameters, sleeping, and eating behavior in patients with vertigo. The present observational study was conducted at Little Flower Hospital and Research Centre, Angamaly, Kerala, India. The study includes thirty cases of vertigo and thirty age- and gender-matched controls. The age group of the selected participants is 30–50 years. The study results strongly support earlier studies linking the autonomic parameters, sleeping, and eating behavior with vertigo. The study recommends further detailed studies in this area to understand vertigo still better way so that effective treatment protocols can be prepared.
