Sudden onset hearing loss steroids

My Mother is 88 yrs old, has had a mild dementia for 2 yrs but able to function and live on her own. just last month she started to fall and lost 8 lbs. Suddenly she had this crazy apathy and did not get out of bed or eat. I got a urine specimen and it showed a UTI, she since has been treated with 4 different antibiotics, yet the infection, now low grade is still there. Worse yet, she has started to babble, at times. I had her in an ALF for respite care but she fell again. I took her to the ER as her MD was being passive. In the month my Mother went from being able to walk around the block, feed, bathe ect. to barely able to get out of bed. She has gone in a rapid decline. She is now in the hospital on IV antibiotics but still seems so far gone. All her labs tests are fine, a CAT of brain, ultrasound of kidneys are good. Normal blood values, just a mild UTI bacteria at 50,000. I am puzzled as to what on earth else is it. Looking for help

Because children learn to speak by listening, children with unidentified hearing loss often have trouble learning to speak, and they experience delays in their language and speech development. For this reason, it is important to pay careful attention to causes of hearing loss in children, and how quickly and well your child is learning to speak and understand language when compared to other children of the same age. If something doesn’t seem right, ask your doctor. What causes hearing loss in children is not always immediately evident.

Finally, to the present day, researchers finally got around to determining whether lack of vitamin A during pregnancy has any bearing on hearing loss. While it is known that middle ear infections during childhood can result in hearing loss, what was not known was whether vitamin A deficiency during gestation prevents hearing deficits. Based upon animal experiments, researchers concluded that vitamin A deficiency during pregnancy, especially during the early stages of fetal development, “may predispose offspring to inner ear malformations and sensorial hearing loss.” The researchers recommend vitamin A throughout pregnancy to promote inner ear development.

We will gather your medical history and discuss with you any recent changes in your health. Then a full examination of your nose and sinus passages will be conducted. A scratch and sniff smell test will be administered to better understand or quantify the level of your smell loss. Nasal endoscopy (a deep look deep inside with a lighted telescope) will help us diagnose the cause of your loss of smell. Imaging (MRI or CT scanning ) may be recommended to help us find out what caused your loss of smell, to rule out more serious possible causes, and to better offer a prognosis on your recovery.
