GUSTATION  (TASTE)  IMPAIRMENT
There are two degrees of loss of Taste (Gustation).  1) Ageusia is the complete loss of one’s ability to taste  2) Hypogeusia is the partial loss or reduction of one’s ability to taste The loss of use of the sense of taste can be caused by many different factors.  Some of these are certain nervous system diseases or radiation treatment for cancer patients may result in a lack of taste and smell. Upper respiratory infections, hormonal disturbances, or dental problems and exposure to chemicals are blamed for some losses. An injury to the head, (TBI), can also cause taste problems.
