    This started yesterday. I thought it was because the food was prepared with too much salt but all day today everything I have eaten that has salt in it has tasted too salty. The other family members says the food tastes the same to them. Should I call the Dr.? I'm not taking any new medicines.

    Could you possibly be ........ preggers?

    I haven't failed; I've just found 10,000 ways that don't work.

    Nope. Total hysterectomy in the 80's.

    Well then THAT'S out of the question!


    Hmmm... suffering any allergies? Sometimes being congested can change how we taste things.

    This happened to me a few weeks ago. It's gone now. But I found this on a Mayo Clinic website.

    You may find that an illness, medical treatment or medication has affected your sense of taste. Food may seem to lack flavor or taste too sweet or salty. Usually these changes are temporary and will improve with time.

    Have you been taking any zinc lately (zicam or ColdEeze, for example) or any supplements that might have zinc in them? Zinc is necessary for the proper functioning of our sense of smell, so I suppose that an excess of it could throw off the sense of taste. Or a deficiency might be causing you not to taste the food, just the salt.

    Years ago, a little girl complained about everything...even Pepsi...tasting salty. Found out she had diabetes.
