Does anyone know if there has been any research investigating a possible relationship between kidney cysts and cochlear hydrops (fluid in ear canal). Trouble with my ear started 5 months ago, prednisone helped bot did not cure. Finally put on diuretic,triamterene-hctz after vertigo episode and doing much better. About the same time a kidney cyst was seen on a routine lung scan. I was told 10 years ago about cyst called benign and nothing to worry about. After diuretic worked so well i started researching how salt is controlled by the body.
Cyst is on top of pole and has apparently gone from simple to complex with a superation. My dr thinks i am off base and wasn't going to do anything but follow up with another scan in 6 months. Though she basically ridiculed my "reseach" and theory about a connection she did give me a referral to a urologist. She bases her opinion on the fact i do not have high blood pressure. I think the cyst may be interfering with my adrenal gland function. I am looking for peer reviewed research to take with me to the urologist next week
