50-year-old was hit with diabetes diagnosis after taste for many foods was altered
More specifically, it’s believed that in diabetes patients, neuropathy involving the taste nerves and microangiopathy of the taste buds decrease taste sensation.
In newly diagnosed cases, however, defects in the brain’s taste receptors are likely to be the cause.
In 2020, the journal Nutrients reported that people with diabetes often report taste disturbance in relation to sweet perception.
A newly diagnosed diabetes patient may have a blunted taste response with a preference for sweet-tasting foods.
