This article presents a case study of a client with Meniere's disease who was successfully fitted with hearing aids in spite of his fluctuating hearing loss. The selected hearing instruments had a portable-programmer that allowed the client to measure his own hearing and to program his own hearing aids at home. It shows the hearing fluctuation, as measured by the client three times a day, over a period of time, as well as different audiograms performed in the clinic by the audiologist. This study demonstrates the feasibility of training a client with fluctuating hearing loss to reliably measure his own hearing levels and program his hearing aids to enhance the level of satisfaction with amplification.
