Abstract [en]

Background: Ménières disease is a complex neurological disease that varies greatly from individual to individual with symptoms such as dizziness and tinnitus. There are few studies that examines the differences regarding balance and dizziness related perception of disabilitiy between men and women with Ménière’s disease.

Purpose: Investigate self-assessed perception of disability and balance of people with Ménières disease. The study also aimed to investigate whether there were any differences between men and women regarding the above mentioned variables.

Method: Retrospective study with quantitative, correlative and comparative design. 41 subjects, 21 women, 20 men were included in the study.

Results: No significant difference between men and women regarding scores on DHI-S or result on Romberg’s test could be shown in this study. Neither could any significant connection between self-assessed perception of disability and balance measured with DHI-S and Romberg’s respectively could be made.

Conclusion: No relation between self-assessed disability and balance was detected between men and women. The study also did not find any differences between the sexes on how they perform on balance measurement or rate their disability. More studies are needed to further investigate and map this area.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Ménières sjukdom är en neurologisk sjukdom med symtom som yrsel och tinnitus. I dagsläget finns få studier som undersöker skillnader gällande balans och yrsel relaterad upplevelse av funktionsnedsättning mellan män respektive kvinnor med Ménières sjukdom.

Syfte: Syftet med studien var att undersöka eventuella samband mellan självskattad funktionsnedsättning och balans samt skillnader mellan män och kvinnor.

Metod: Retrospektiv studie med kvantitativ, korrelerande och komparativ design. 41 antal försökspersoner, 21 kvinnor, 20 män inkluderades i studien.

Resultat: Ingen skillnad mellan män och kvinnors värde på DHI-S kunde påvisas. Det förelåg ingen signifikant skillnad mellan män och kvinnor gällande resultat på Rombergs test. Inget samband mellan upplevelse av funktionsnedsättning och balans mätt med DHI-S respektive Rombergs test för kvinnor och män gick att påvisa.

Konklusion: Inget samband mellan självskattad funktionsnedsättning och balans kunde påvisas hos män och kvinnor. Studien fann inte heller några skillnader mellan könen gällande hur de presterar på balansmätning eller skattar sin funktionsnedsättning. Vidare studier behövs för att kunna ytterligare undersöka och kartlägga detta område.
