Hello Gail. Welcome to JA. So you are eighty, you have hypertension? high cholesterol? What type of evaluation did you have for your dizziness complaint? The treatment for this condition is dependant on the cause. It can be "central" as in a brain process, and there are many different reasons, or a peripheral process, related to your balance mechanism in your inner ear. So there is an answer, but it depends on the cause. Please get back to me with more information, as to what doctors have told you, and I will reply. Dr Frank
