Common "Changes In Taste" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Changes In Taste

Change in taste or impaired taste refers to the loss or difference in the sense of tasting. This is common in people above the age of 50, and in most cases, it is only temporary. This might be due to a number of factors such as common cold, medications, smoking, age, etc. If the change of taste is caused by factors other than aging, it will return once the cause is rectified, but it cannot be reversed in the case of aging.
