Gustatory dysfunction perceptions versus objective gustatory dysfunction among older adults

Abstract: Background Research on gustatory dysfunction among older adults has been scarce relative to research on olfactory dysfunction, and the relationship between subjective and objective gustatory dysfunction has not been studied in detail. We aimed to evaluate whether subjective recognition of gustatory dysfunction correlates with objective diagnosis of gustatory dysfunction among older adults. Methods In this retrospective, cross-sectional study, we re… Show more

“…In our previous study, we found that the subjective recognition of gustatory dysfunction does not correlate with objective gustatory dysfunction but was correlated with olfactory dysfunction in geriatric patients. 2 Similarly, the olfactory score, rather than the gustatory score, correlated better with patients' self-assessed taste ratings. 5 Gustatory and olfactory dysfunctions are often intermingled; the relationship between subjective gustatory and objective olfactory dysfunctions needs to be evaluated.…”

“…In a previous study, we too have evaluated the relationship between gustatory and olfactory functions in geriatric patients aged ≥60 years. 2 In another study that evaluated gustatory function in the community, participants were divided into young-old (aged 69−71 years) and old-old (aged 79−81 years) groups. 3 As chemosensory dysfunction in geriatric individuals is gaining more attention, if the authors could present their findings in specific geriatric age groups, it could provide greater clinical significance.…”
