Why Causes Metallic Taste In Mouth For IgA Nephropathy Patients

Why Causes Metallic Taste In Mouth For IgA Nephropathy PatientsGenerally speaking, we tend to take our sense of taste for granted, until something goes wrong. A metallic taste in mouth is a form of dysgeusia, an abnormality of the sense of taste. Actually, there are many possible causes of having a metallic taste in mouth for IgA Nephropathy patients, ranging from medicines to systemic disorders to environmental hazards. Now, follow us to learn more details about these causes.

1. Medicines

Medicines are a leading cause of a metallic taste in mouth for IgA nephropathy patients. The types of drugs that can cause this side effect include certain drugs that treat a wide range of conditions including IgA nephropathy, heart and blood pressure problems, diabetes, cold, fever, osteoporosis and others.

2. Impairment of kidney function

For IgA nephropathy patients, their damaged kidneys are not able to remove wastes especially ammonia out of the body. This causes patients to develop bad breath and metallic taste in mouth.

3. Nervous system diseases

Nervous system disorders can potentially cause taste disturbances. Because taste and smell complement one another, a disturbance in your sense of smell may be perceived as an abnormality in your sense of taste. Autoimmune diseases like IgA nephropathy affecting the central or peripheral nervous system can be associated with a metallic taste in mouth.

4. Allergies

Allergies have been known to cause a metallic taste in mouth, of course, including IgA nephropathy patients. This can be due to direct local effects on taste and smell ( such a runny or stuffy nose ) or the release of histamines caused by allergic reaction.
