SMELL AND TASTE LOSS

 

Smell dysfunction can significantly impact your health and quality of life. Such loss can also be an early warning of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Taste dysfunction can significantly impact your health and quality of life. The taste system is not only important for eating and nutrition, it is also important for preparing your digestive system to properly digest the foods that you eat.

People can have various types of smell or taste dysfunction. There are dysfunctions that reduce the ability to smell or taste, totally eliminate the ability to smell or taste, distort the sense of smell or taste, or even invoke the sensation of smell or taste even when there are no odors or tastents present.

Smell and/or taste dysfunctions can be caused by any of the following conditions:

  • Aging
  • Oral cancers
  • Hormonal disturbances
  • Polyps, or other growths in nasal cavities
  • Exposure to pesticides, insecticides, or solvents
  • Radiation for treatment of head and neck cancers

Both taste and smell disorders are diagnosed by medical professionals.  Click the search button below to find a practitioner to determine the extent of your smell or taste disorder.
