About symptoms


Sleep Apnea Syndrome (SAS) and Snoring

Apnea is defined as cessation of breathing for 10 seconds or longer. If the respiratory arrest occurs more than 5 times in an hour, it is considered pathological. "Epworth Sleepiness Scale", the condition of 11 points or more is diagnosed as "sleep apnea syndrome" (there are individual differences). "Sleep apnea syndrome" is closely related to lifestyle-related diseases, and it is reported that the risk of developing high blood pressure is doubled, angina pectoris and myocardial infarction are tripled, and cerebrovascular disease is quadrupled.


Hearing Aid

Hearing aid outpatient (reservation required) is held every Wednesday afternoon.
Hearing aid, like glasses, cannot be effective unless they are suitable for your hearing ability. For this reason, it is important to obtain an accurate image of hearing through a hearing test. On top of that, we recommend hearing aids that match your hearing. No matter what your hearing aid is, we will adjust it repeatedly until you are satisfied. In addition, we are also responding to consultations such as adaptation for people with disabilities, so please contact us.


How to Prevent Tinnitus

  • Remove earwax and avoid excessive ear cleaning.

  • Watch out for hypertension (measure blood pressure regularly).

  • Use earplugs in noisy environments.

  • Tooth decay and temporomandibular joint abnormalities are treated.

  • "Autogenic training"

  • "TRT; Tinnitus Retraining Therapy"
    It is a treatment that tries to make tinnitus less annoying. It is a method of deepening understanding of tinnitus through "counseling" and treating it with a pleasant sound that makes you forget about tinnitus while listening to sounds from the outside as they are in "sound therapy".


Taste Disorders

  • Decreased overall sense of taste.

  • Only certain tastes are impaired.

  • There is no abnormality in the mouth, but a bitter or astringent taste is felt.

  • It tastes different.

Depending on the symptoms, such as idiopathic dysgeusia, zinc deficiency dysgeusia​ and drug-induced dysgeusia, diet therapy and zinc therapy are performed.

Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)

Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) cannot be expected to be completely cured with drugs. The only treatment that may cure allergic rhinitis (hay fever) is allergen immunotherapy. This is an immunotherapy in which the substance (allergen) causing the allergic reaction is confirmed by a blood test, and an injectable drug containing the allergen as its main ingredient is injected subcutaneously once or twice a week on a regular basis. The entire process takes about 3 to 5 years, but it is a meaningful treatment to be adopted for the long future. In addition, a tablet (allergen) that is administered under the tongue has been available for "cedar" and "ticks" only since a while ago and can be taken at home.
