Disturbances of Taste

Dysgeusia is the distortion or absence of the sense of taste. Disturbance of taste mostly is a transient disorder associated with cold, rhinitis and similar conditions. Permanent loss or disturbance of taste, however, is followed by a fatal impairment of quality of life, as eating and drinking practices change thoroughly. The patient is no longer able to realize aromatics and cannot recognize inedible or spoiled food.. As the taste disturbance is not a monocausal disease, there is no causal therapy. Causal agents have to be eliminated / treated . These measures include the reduction of drug side-effects, the improvement of anti-diabetic treatment, and elimination of noxious agents.
