Yellow day lily, just for illustration

There are many signs of Parkinson’s Diseases, one of them is loss to smell (Hyposmia).

Keep in mind, it is common or about 70% - 90% of people faced olfactory impairment in certain point in their life, especially the older ones. Many impairments just common health issues.

The impairments may include trouble to:
- detect odors
- tell different of odors
- identify smell
- sense smell

Smell impairments could be caused by many factors such as:
- infection and injury of upper respiratory
- there is polyp in nasal cavity
- sinus infections
- medications (using of drugs)
- hormone productions
- exposure to chemical substances

In the long term or more than two years, olfactory impairment not only common health issues, but could also be problems lead to motor symptoms, then affect on movements (signs Parkinson’s Diseases).

Scientists develops smell test called DaTSCAN recently. The test is cheaper and has quick result. The validation is promising. About 86% to 92% people are diagnosed as early patients of Parkinson's diseases.

Thus, physicians may treated patients to prevent progression of Parkinson's diseases as soon as possible.

  10. Tanza, This is an awful disease... I had an uncle who had both Parkinson's and Altzimers at the same time. He was wealthy but all his money couldn't fix these terrible afflictions. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  13. Loss of smell can also be connected with Covid-19. On the other extreme, my sense of smell can be ultra sensitive when I have a migraine.
