»   Managing Loss of Smell

Not all people with reduced sense of smell will go on to develop Parkinson's, but most people with Parkinson's Disease have some loss of their sense of smell. In fact, reduced sense of smell, called hyposmia, is often an early sign of Parkinson's. Looking back, you may realize you were losing your sense of smell several years before you received a Parkinson's diagnosis.

Hyposmia is an under-recognized symptoms, as it is not a common concern for doctors to ask about or for patients to report. If you or someone you know has trouble smelling foods like bananas, pickles or licorice, ask your doctor about Parkinson's.
