Dysgeusia – Symptoms, Causes and Treatment


When dysgeusia occurs in a short period, it would cause reduced appetite. This leads to a weight loss even in several days. But after that, the appetite can be restored when the cause is treated. For pregnant women, this complication should be carefully watched to ensure the health of the mother and baby. In the long term, dysgeusia might increase the risk of malnutrition and other health issues like stroke, gastrointestinal disease, and diabetes. [2]
