Smell and taste disorders can be devastating. They are often characterized by an absence, a dullness, or a distortion of the related senses. This may include perceiving a smell or taste as unpleasant when it is not, perceiving a smell or taste when none is present, and the inability to distinguish smells or tastes. In most cases, a smell or taste disorder is actually a smell disorder.
Possible causes of smell and taste disorders include:
- Nasal polyps
- Upper respiratory infection or injury
- Sinus infections
Smell and taste disorders can also be indicative of larger conditions, such as cancer or Alzheimer’s. They may also signal seemingly unrelated conditions, such as hormonal imbalances or dental problems. So it is important to get a proper diagnosis.
