Although smell and taste disorders in older people are often not directly life-threatening, they can have a major impact on quality of life. More worrisome, they often lead to weight loss and even malnutrition. Loss of smell and taste can create dangerous health risks when someone cannot recognize the odor of gas leaks, smoke, or spoiled food. Although these disorders can arise simply from the physiological changes of aging, they can also indicate other more serious medical problems. Healthcare professionals can improve an elder’s quality of life by performing a careful assessment to identify the cause of the smell and taste disorders and by assisting them with ways to cope with the problem.
