What is loss of taste? It’s uncommon to lose your ability to taste. Most often, a loss of smell makes foods taste bland. The medical term for a complete inability to taste is ageusia (uh-gyou-zee-uh). More people have hypogeusia, which means foods and drinks don’t taste as flavorful as they should. Taste buds become less sensitive after age 50.
Loss of taste and smell can have a significant impact on quality of life. It often leads to decreased appetite and poor nutrition. It can sometimes contribute to depression. Loss of taste and smell also might tempt you to use excess salt or sugar on your food to enhance the taste. This could be a problem if you have high blood pressure or diabetes.
The term “ageusia” refers to the loss of sense of taste. Ageusia may be caused by infections, certain medications, nutritional deficiencies or other factors. Loss of sense of taste is also a possible symptom of COVID-19. In most cases, treating the underlying cause of ageusia can restore your taste.
