Dulled Sense Of Taste

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone ever have a few days or a couple weeks when their taste buds seem to become lazy and you just can't taste things very clearly? The sense of smell is okay, but things taste blah...?

thanks

You nailed it...it isn't that things taste necessarily terrible...but they don't taste right. Like they are off or something. I know when this happens I start throwing food away because I think they've gone bad (like yogurt, cream, meat) and finally I realize that it all can't be bad.

But I don't know what causes it. I've noticed I also get a reduced sense of salt at the same time and will really be emptying the salt shaker into my food.

If you figure this out, please post here..

thanks

Me, too. I've been wondering about that. It seems that some things just have no taste until I add a lot of salt and pepper. I don't remember ever using this much before.

YOU ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT THE SALT. THERE ARE TIMES I CAN NOT GET ENOUGH SALT ON THINGS. GOOD THING I HAVE LOW BLOOD PRESSURE AND DO NOT HAVE TO LIMIT MY SALT INTAKE. HUSBANDS SAYS I WOULD SALT THE SALT IF I COULD. I DID THROW OUT ALL MY SALT A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND BOUGHT NEW SALT. THOUGHT THE SALT HAD SOMEHOW GONE BAD SINCE IT WAS NOT SALTY ENOUGH FOR ME. KIND OF CRAZY WHEN I THINK ABOUT IT. I GUESS THIS CAN EFFECT ALL OF US ALITTLE DIFFERENT THAN IT DOES SOMEONE ELSE.

Prior to going gluten-free my sense of taste and smell would be either too sensitive or non-existant. Now both seem to work the way they are supposed to.

I just threw out my jar of sea-salt because I also thought it had lost all of its saltiness. (lol) Is this weird or what? Hmmmm, at least I don't feel too crazy because I know I'm not alone.

I'll keep my ears open on other boards to see if anyone has figured this one out!

I don't go to other celiac sites (none are better than this one). But for another disorder, I visit the boards at Braintalk communities dealing with neurological problems. i'll keep my eyes open on these boards for anything pointing to loss of taste or change in taste sensations.
