Absent or Decreased Sense of Smell and Taste

When suffering from a cold, sinus infection or if you have nasal polyps you may notice that you can hardly smell or sometimes even taste your food.

The sense of Taste and Smell are linked to each other. Without smell you can still taste if your food is bitter, sweet or sour but there would be no real flavor to the food. This is because almost everything that we taste is actually due to the smell of the foods that we eat. 

For some people a decreased sense or loss of smell might be minor and for others very serious.

Some examples include:

–          A burning house full of sleeping people (It would be a serious problem if you cannot smell the smoke)

–          Someone wanting to be a Top Chef (Difficulties would arise if you cannot smell and therefore taste the food correctly)

–          Or simply enjoying a nice cooked meal…

So what causes the Loss of smell and taste?

  • Nasal Obstruction and Congestion block the nasal passages/sinuses and stop aromas from reaching the smell receptors in the nose.
  • Colds and flu’s causing a stuffy nose or congestion and inflammation.
  • Allergies causing inflammation and congestion.
  • Nasal polyps (sac-like growths) which block the nasal passages and sinuses.
  • Sinusitis (sinus infections)
  • Normal Aging (worn out cilia in the nose and taste buds on the tongue)
  • Bell’s palsy (paralysis of  the facial nerve therefore unable to control the muscles on the affected side of the face)
  • Smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol (damages the cilia in the nose and taste buds on the tongue)
