List of Perception Disorders
*Taste disorder facts by John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP
- The most common taste disorder is phantom taste perception, which is a lingering, often unpleasant taste even though you have nothing in your mouth. Another type of taste disorder is hypogeusia, a reduced ability to taste sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and savory (umami). Dysgeusia is a condition in which a foul, salty, rancid, or metallic taste sensation will persist in the mouth. Ageusia is the inability to detect any tastes, which is rare.
- Often, people who feel they have a problem with their sense of taste are experiencing a loss of smell instead of a loss of taste.
- Some people are born with taste disorders. Other causes include upper respiratory and infections, for cancers of the head and neck, exposure to certain chemicals, some antibiotics and, , surgery to the ear, nose, and throat, poor oral hygiene, and dental problems.
- Many types of taste disorders are curable when the underlying cause is diagnosed. If a medication is the cause, adjusting or changing the medication may help. If the taste disorder is due to an upper respiratory infection or, once the condition is treated, the sense of taste returns to normal. Proper oral hygiene can also resolve some taste disorders.
- If you lose some or all of your sense of taste you can make your food taste better by preparing foods with a variety of textures, and using herbs and hot spices.
