Pharmacokinetic profile of alniditan nasal spray during and outside migraine attacks. (1/96)

AIMS: To compare the pharmacokinetic profile of intranasal alniditan during and outside migraine attacks, and to investigate the relationship between initial rise of alniditan plasma concentration, and headache improvement. METHODS: Twenty-seven migraine patients (age: 18-65 years) were randomized to receive alniditan 2 mg or 4 mg, and investigated both during and outside a migraine attack. Maximal plasma concentrations (Cmax), time to Cmax (tmax), and the area under the curve over 2 h (AUC(0,2 h)), were calculated from the individual plasma concentration-time profile, obtained from 10 blood samples in each patient, during each of the two administrations. RESULTS: Alniditan was rapidly absorbed into the systemic circulation (tmax=11 min). All investigated pharmacokinetic parameters (Cmax, tmax, AUC(0,2 h)) were similar during and outside migraine attacks, both in the 2 mg (n = 13) and the 4 mg group (n = 14). In the 4 mg group, during attacks, mean plasma alniditan concentration at 5 min after administration (Ct=5) in responders (21+/-16 ng ml(-1); n=10) was significantly higher than the Ct=5 in nonresponders (3+/-3 ng ml(-1); P=0.01; n=4). However, the Cmax and AUC(0,2 h) in responders (33+/-18 ng ml(-1) and 12+/-6 ng ml(-1) h) were also significantly higher than the Cmax and AUC(0,2 h) in nonresponders (13+/-9 ng ml(-1); P=0.048 and 5+/-3 ng ml(-1) h; P=0.03). CONCLUSIONS: Absorption of alniditan nasal spray was not affected by migraine attacks, although 95% confidence intervals were wide. Early rise of plasma concentrations and the amount of drug in the circulation were related to headache improvement in the higher dose group.  (+info)

Long-term effects on the olfactory system of exposure to hydrogen sulphide. (2/96)

OBJECTIVE: To study chronic effects of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) on cranial nerve I (nervi olfactorii), which have been only minimally described. METHODS: Chemosensations (smell and taste) were evaluated in eight men who complained of continuing dysfunction 2-3 years after the start of occupational exposure to H2S. Various bilateral (both nostrils) and unilateral (one nostril at a time) odour threshold tests with standard odorants as well as the Chicago smell test, a three odour detection and identification test and the University of Pennsylvania smell identification test, a series of 40 scratch and sniff odour identification tests were administered. RESULTS: Six of the eight patients showed deficits of various degrees. Two had normal scores on objective tests, but thought that they continued to have problems. H2S apparently can cause continuing, sometimes unrecognised olfactory deficits. CONCLUSION: Further exploration into the extent of such problems among workers exposed to H2S is warranted.  (+info)

Smell and taste disorders: a primary care approach. (3/96)

Smell and taste disorders are common in the general population, with loss of smell occurring more frequently. Although these disorders can have a substantial impact on quality of life and may represent significant underlying disease, they are often overlooked by the medical community. Patients may have difficulty recognizing smell versus taste dysfunction and frequently confuse the concepts of "flavor" and "taste." While the most common causes of smell disturbance are nasal and sinus disease, upper respiratory infection and head trauma, frequent causes of taste disturbance include oral infections, oral appliances (e.g., dentures), dental procedures and Bell's palsy. Medications can interfere with smell and taste, and should be reviewed in all patients with reported dysfunction. In addition, advancing age has been associated with a natural impairment of smell and taste ability. A focused history and a physical examination of the nose and mouth are usually sufficient to screen for underlying pathology. Computed tomographic scanning or magnetic resonance imaging of affected areas, as well as commercially available standardized tests, may be useful in selected patients. The causes of olfactory dysfunction that are most amenable to treatment include obstructing polyps or other masses (treated by excision) and inflammation (treated with steroids). Enhancement of food flavor and appearance can improve quality of life in patients with irreversible dysfunction.  (+info)

A 70-year-old man with isolated weight loss and a pellagra-like syndrome due to celiac disease. (4/96)

An elderly man was diagnosed with celiac disease, which presented with three notable features: first, presentation at the age of 70 with no prior gastrointestinal symptomatology or positive family history; second, triggering of all symptoms following recent myocardial infarction and infective endocarditis; third, presentation with marked (more than 20 percent) weight loss and pellagra-like skin lesions despite nearly normal examination and laboratory tests. Thus, celiac disease may present as a pellagra-like syndrome in the elderly with predominant weight loss that is enhanced by the related taste disturbances.  (+info)

Clinical bitterness masking test for phantogeusia. (5/96)

It is difficult to determine the reason why a patient complains of a bitter taste when their mouth is empty. We examined a new diagnostic test using a bitterness masking substance. The bitterness masking substance, 'Benecoat BMI-60' (hereafter BMI-60), is a masking substance specific to the taste cells' bitterness receptors. After patients gargled with BMI-60 solutions, the phantom sensation of bitterness was masked in some patients, but was not masked in others. Bitter substances in saliva seemed to be masked by BMI-60, but bitterness did not seem to be masked when the locus of the phantom sensation was within the peripheral nerve and/or the brain. The bitterness masking test is useful for diagnosis of the phantom sensation of bitter taste.  (+info)

Changes in taste intensity perception following anterior temporal lobe removal in humans. (6/96)

To investigate the role of the anterior temporal lobe in taste perception, we compared taste intensity estimations made by patients who had removal from either the left or the right anterior temporal lobe for the treatment of intractable epilepsy with a group of healthy control subjects. Estimations were made for five concentrations of each of four different tastes, as well as for five cards of varying saturations of gray, which served as a control task. A cross-modal magnitude estimation procedure was employed in which subjects used distance on a measuring tape to reflect intensity estimation. Distances were then transformed into logs, and the slope and the correlation with stimulus concentration or saturation was calculated. Correlation was taken as a measure of accuracy of estimation and slope was taken as a measure of perceived intensity. As predicted, repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed a significant difference between the control group and both patient groups in taste intensity estimations, but not for grayness, reflecting the importance of the anterior temporal lobe in low-level gustatory but not visual perception. Additionally, repeated measures ANOVA for slopes indicated that subjects in the right temporal group rated the bitter taste as more intense than did subjects in other groups, possibly reflecting increased intensity perception of the unpleasant bitter taste.  (+info)

Taste confusions following chlorhexidine treatment. (7/96)

Chlorhexidine, a bitter bis-biguanide antiseptic, is the only known blocker of the human salty taste. In order to characterize the effects of chlorhexidine on stimulus identification, taste confusion matrix (TCM) performance was measured for subjects treated with 1.34 mM chlorhexidine gluconate (n = 9) and water controls (n = 9). Ten stimuli [water, 0.1 M NaCl, 0.1 M KCl, 0.1 mM quinine-HCl (QHCl), 0.1 M monosodium glutamate (MSG), 3 mM citric acid, 0.3 M sucrose and mixtures of NaCl, QHCl and citric acid with sucrose] were presented in 10 replicates for identification from a list of 10 stimulus names. T(10), a measure of performance consistency from information theory, was lower for chlorhexidine-treated subjects (2.02 +/- 0.11 bits) than controls (2.73 +/- 0.11 bits) (P < 0.0001). T(2), an indirect measure of pairwise stimulus discrimination, approached chance levels (0.40 bit) in chlorhexidine-treated subjects for all possible pairs of NaCl, KCl, QHCl and water, as well as pairs composed of sucrose and the NaCl-sucrose and quinine-sucrose mixtures. In controls T(2) values approached perfect scores (1.00 bit) for all stimulus pairs except NaCl-KCl and NaCl-MSG. The results demonstrate a decreased ability to identify taste stimuli that is consistent with alterations in the ability of stimuli to elicit salty and bitter taste perceptions. As a selective, effective, persistent and reversible blocker of taste perceptions, chlorhexidine should prove useful in defining taste mechanisms in humans.  (+info)

Management of smell and taste problems. (8/96)

Lost or impaired smell or taste should be taken seriously, as it puts a person at higher risk for toxic exposures, such as gas leaks, smoke, and rotting food, and it also takes away the enjoyment of some of life's pleasures, such as the fragrance of flowers or the taste of good food or fine wine. In many patients, the loss follows a viral upper respiratory tract infection, and the only real treatment is to reassure patients that the problem may resolve if the damaged sensory cells regenerate. In other patients, the loss has more subtle causes and deserves a careful investigation and appropriate treatment. This article reviews the proper steps to take when investigating and treating chemosensory difficulties.  (+info)

Zinc deficiency is common in Japan, yet awareness on this disorder is lacking. The Japanese Society of Clinical Nutrition recently issued the Japan’s Practical Guideline for Zinc Deficiency 2018 setting forth criteria for diagnosing zinc deficiency, i.e., (a) one or more symptoms of zinc deficiency or low serum alkaline phosphatase, (b) ruling out other diseases, (c) low serum zinc, and (d) alleviation of symptoms upon zinc administration. Serum zinc <60 μg/dL and 60–80 μg/dL indicate zinc deficiency and marginal deficiency, respectively. Zinc deficiency symptoms vary and include dermatitis and taste disorders among others. Zinc administration improves taste in 50–82% of patients suffering from taste disorders (a common symptom of zinc deficiency). Effects of zinc administration do not appear immediately, and therapy should be continued for at least three months. Zinc deficiency often accompanies various diseases and conditions. Here, we focus on inflammatory bowel diseases

We experience taste when a substance contacts one of four taste receptor cells for sweet, salt, bitter, or sour. The receptor cells are located in taste buds spread over the surface of the tongue and throat. Three different nerves allow us to taste, therefore it is very difficult to lose all sense of taste through a nerve injury. In addition, like the smell nerves, the taste receptor cells are replaceable and if damaged they can grow back. A decrease in ability to taste is called hypogeusia, and a total loss of taste is termed ageusia.. CLICK & SEE THE PICTURES. Click to learn:-, What is taste Description of the parts of the tongue. Taste disorders like smell disorders can occur for many different reasons. Total loss of taste often indicates a disorder throughout the body such as due to toxicity, medications, or nutrition disorders. Decreased or abnormal taste can also occur from poor dentition or from cancer of the mouth.. Besides a detailed history and head and neck exam, evaluation by an ...

The senses of smell and taste The senses of smell and taste are chemosenses and belong in the chemical sensing system.. The processes of smelling and tasting are complex. They begin when molecules are released by substances that stimulate the sensory cells in the nose, mouth, or throat.. Olfactory nerve cells are stimulated by odors. They are found in tissue located high inside the nose, and connect directly to the brain.. Gustatory nerve cells are stimulated by the taste of food and beverage. They are located in the taste buds of the mouth and throat.. These sensory cells transmit messages to the brain through the nerves, where specific tastes and smells are identified.. Another chemosensory process, called common chemical sense, also contributes to smell and taste. These cells alert the brain to sensations, such as heat (as from peppers) or cool (as from menthol).. How do taste and smell interact?. The four basic taste sensations are sweet, sour, bitter, and salty.. When these tastes, along ...
Malnutrition and cachexia are prevalent in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Food aversion is a major contributor to anorexia and malnutrition in ESRD and it also impacts the quality of life. Olfactory dysfunction has been shown to contribute to food aversion in ESRD patients. Since up to 80% of a meals flavor is attributed to olfactory input, loss or alteration of smell leads to loss or alteration of taste in ESRD patients and at present there are no effective therapies to treat smell and/or taste disorders in ESRD patients.. In patients with other causes of olfactory dysfunction such as congenital hyposmia and traumatic brain injury, intranasal theophylline has been shown to be effective in improving olfactory defects via increasing nasal mucus levels of cAMP and cGMP, second messengers critical for optimal smell sensation. However, the efficacy of nasal theophylline to improve olfaction in ESRD patients has not been ...

Norgren, 1997) expressed a significant (albeit reduced) salt appetite following sodium depletion, and a normal conditioned taste aversion (CTA) for alanine when paired with lithium chloride-induced toxicosis. Rats with lesions of the NST also could acquire a conditioned odor aversion, but the CTA to alanine was not mediated by odor cues because other rats with NST lesions also demonstrated normal CTA learning even when made anosmic with zinc sulfate. Together, the data suggest that the rostral NST is essential for ...
The chemical senses of taste and smell play a vital role in conveying information about ourselves and our environment. Tastes and smells can warn against danger and also contribute to the daily enjoyment of food, friends and family, and our surroundings. Over 12% of the US population is estimated to experience taste and smell (chemosensory) dysfunction. Yet, despite this high prevalence, long-term, effective treatments for these disorders have been largely elusive. Clinical successes in other sensory systems, including hearing and vision, have led to new hope for developments in the treatment of chemosensory disorders. To accelerate cures, we convened the Identifying Treatments for Taste and Smell Disorders conference, bringing together basic and translational sensory scientists, health care professionals, and patients to identify gaps in our current understanding of chemosensory dysfunction and next steps in a broad-based research strategy. Their suggestions for high-yield next steps were focused in

Its a credit to the people who styled the VT Commodore of 1997 that, even after nearly 10 years, it still looks fresh.. More than that, though, it still looks attractive, and itll be interesting to see whether the new VE Commodore instantly makes the VT through VZ models look old hat.. Certainly thats what the VT series did to the outgoing VS model and most of what went before it.. To see a VS Commodore now is to realise that tastes change fast in the automotive world and only the clever designs seem to endure.. Presumably the new VE will make the VS models seem even more ancient, but thats going to be good for anybody in the market for such a car.. Specifically, the cars that are a chance to dump another big chunk of their residual when the VE arrives will by the hero cars, notably the HSV models..

The association of SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19) and alterations in smell and taste has become apparent since the onset of the pandemic. The loss of smell (anosmia) can occur alone, being the first symptom of the infection, or can be accompanied by other symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, fatigue, headache, and body aches. Several early studies of the pandemic suggest that 35% to 68% of patients with the coronavirus develop alterations in both smell and taste. Interestingly, there seems to be a higher incidence of smell and taste disorders in females with the disease.. Patients generally developed anosmia between 3-5 days after the onset of COVID-19 with the duration of the alteration and smell and taste generally lasting several weeks. Return to normal function was found in slightly half of patients by 5 to 6 weeks. The Vanderbilt Smell and Taste Clinic continues to evaluate patients that have not recovered their sense of smell or taste within the first month. If you are post-COVID and continue ...

Elderly individuals and HIV-infected patients have a disproportionate number of taste complaints relative to the general population, and these taste alterations are correlated with the use of medications. Clinical reports of taste disorders have been associated with many drugs, including antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory medications. The purpose of this study was to quantify the taste effects of 6 nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and 13 antimicrobial drugs. The six NSAIDS were: diclofenac sodium salt, fenoprofen calcium salt, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, nabumetone, and sulindac. The 13 antimicrobials were: acyclovir, ampicillin, atovaquone, dapsone, enoxacin, ethambutol, lomefloxacin HCl, ofloxacin, pentamidine isethionate, pyrimethamine, sulfamethoxazole, tetracycline HCl, and trimethoprim. These 19 medications were applied topically to the tongues of unmedicated young and elderly volunteers as well as unmedicated HIV-infected patients to measure the direct effect of the drug on taste

Even before COVID-19, there was a body of evidence that correlated a loss of smell with an onset of clinical depression. In fact, experiencing a loss of smell can greatly impact your sense of taste. You can get super hungry! If the sense of smell returns at times, this is not a permanent loss. While we tend not to think of smell and taste as important as our other senses, clearly its loss can interfere with the enjoyment of life-and our safety. But the smell and taste loss associated with COVID-19 appears to be unique to the novel coronavirus according to Nicholas Rowan, M.D., an assistant professor of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Weiss bred mice that lacked Nav1.7 in their olfactory neurons and discovered that, although the neurons still produced electrical signals in response to odours, they no longer transferred the signals to other neurons as they typically would.. The behaviour of these knockout mice also implied that they could not smell. Mice are generally intrigued by the aromas of potential mates and of food, but when the researchers presented the knockout mice with the scents of male and female urine, peanut butter and milk, they showed no interest. The mice were similarly unfazed when researchers exposed them to a chemical that foxes secrete from their anal glands which usually sends rodents scurrying in the opposite direction. When the researchers separated mother knockout mice from their pups, the smell-impaired mums failed to corral their offspring - a behaviour that probably relies on smell.. Co-author Frank Zufall, also of the University of Saarland, says the connection between smell and pain was ...
Directly ra doesnt seem to have much impact on smell and taste but autoimmune diseases like sjogrens syndrome can definitely have an impact on taste. In addition several of the medications that are prescribed for ra have side effects on both taste and smell. So in my book, although it may not be ra directly impinging on our senses, ra is still the culprit. Typical medications that can play havoc on these two senses are corticosteroids. (Note: in order to use this link, you will need to change the drop down selection at the left upper side of their chart and select corticosteroids) Although there is no official offering about corticosteroids impacting taste and smell, from personal experience I can attest to the fact that it does heighten both these senses. In addition, if one searches several of the other commonly prescribed medications (search under DMARDS on their chart), you will notice mouth sores listed for methotrexate. In my humble opinion, if you are having difficulty with either of ...
The sense of smell is the least understood and perhaps the least appreciated of all our senses, and in the future may become a key to unlocking many of our body-minds most sensual mysteries.. Researchers have found that even if we soon forget things we see or hear, we remember odors for a lifetime. Our sense of smell is our most enduring and powerful of all our senses. It is linked with emotions which are stored in our limbic brain. Our memory of scent is longer lasting and more accurate than our sight or reasoning memory. Scent triggers our emotions affecting the autonomic system (controls nerves leading to your bodys glands and organs).. Smell is the most sensitive of our senses, and perhaps the most primitive. We can distinguish literally thousands of odors and fragrances, and somehow remember them for the rest of our lives. Studies have shown that infants can identify their mothers on the basis of smell, and that mothers also can pick out their babies on smell alone. It requires only four ...

Changes in how things taste commonly occur as a side effect of chemotherapy, as well as radiation therapy for head and neck cancers. Taste changes may be caused by damage to cells in the mouth by chemotherapy or by the spread of chemotherapy drugs in the tissues of the mouth.. Taste changes may also be caused by radiation damage to the salivary glands, resulting in a dry mouth. Saliva contributes to our sense of taste by mixing with food, which helps to stimulate the taste buds on our tongue. When there is less saliva, the food does not come into contact with the taste buds as easily and there may be changes in how we perceive the four tastes.. How will things taste after chemotherapy treatment? ...

It is generally accepted that humans can perceive five basic tastes: sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami. Unami is sometimes called savory. Although each type of taste sensor is found at all areas of the tongue, certain areas seem to respond more for one taste sensation versus another. The tongue can be mapped by dipping toothpicks in different solutions and touching them to different regions of the surface of the tongue. See Figure l for generalized regions of taste often found on the surface of the tongue. The final ability to taste something is a complex interaction between olfactory sensors (ability to smell) and stimulation of the taste buds. When a substance is placed in the mouth it quickly disperses to all four taste areas and creates a nearly instant taste sensation. Where the taste sensation occurs is really not discernible and is of little consequence when we are actually tasting something. What is perhaps more interesting is our ability to taste or not taste a particular substance ...

These problems often improve over time, and our guide gives some practical tips about oral hygiene and enjoying your food.. ...
The purpose of this agreement is to provide funding for a collaborative effort with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) to pilot test the chemosenses component in persons age 40 and older, and implement in the survey pending a successful pilot. The chemosenses component will consist of 1) household interview questions to define the prevalence of self-reported taste and smell disorders, and to identify risk factors and confounders for the analysis of the taste and smell exam data; 2) smell testing using two modified Pocket Smell Identification Tests, a scratch and sniff test with 8 odorants; and 3) taste testing performed using small amounts of liquids that can be spit out afterwards. For Taste testing, the respondent will be asked both to identify and to rate the intensity of the stimulus. (ADC12002001-1-0-0) ...
Its driving me insane, I cant stand the smell of my kitchen, cooking (partic Smell sensitivity is a symptom of early pregnancy that is mostly self-reported. Your husband wont smell like that after you have the baby. Why do women have an increased sense of smell during early pregnancy? You can reduce your chances of coming in contact with scents that you know cause problems by avoiding foods and drinks that trigger those feelings at all costs. Another symptom of early pregnancy is a heightened sense of smell. 1. Your babys sense of smell starts developing at a relatively early age. Two-thirds of the women reported increased smell sensitivity, but they also reported distortions in smells, phantom smells and abnormal tastes, including increased bitter sensitivity and decreased salt sensitivity [source: Nordin et al.].

Currently, one of the most effective surgical methods for treating obesity is the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, which limits the amount of food and drink that can be ingested at one time and the amount of calories and nutrients absorbed through the intestinal tract. An unintended side effect of RYGB is that it reduces the patients taste for sweet and fatty foods-but there is no scientific explanation for why these taste changes occur.
The olfactory sense, or the sense of smell, is the method in which the human body perceives its environment around it through its scent. Our sense of smell is substantially more sensitive than any of our other senses, and its ability to recognise scents is immediate. The mind relies on this recognition ability of our olfactory sense in order to recall memories. When dealing with a familiar scent, the brain immediately associates the scent with a past experience. Therefore, a persons qualia of a particular scent is largely dependant on the persons memories, as a person could associate a particular scent as pleasant while another person could associate the same scent as unpleasant. There are a lot of people who report problems with their sense of smell, about one to two percent of North Americans. This is more common in men than women, and more problems occur with the sense of smell as age increases, and in one study, nearly one-quarter of men ages 60-69 had a smell disorder, while about 11 ...

It could mean: You have a yeast infection. A lumpy, white-coated tongue could be thrush, an oral yeast infection caused by overproduction of candida. The condition is often linked to antibiotics When you take an antibiotic, which selectively kills off bacteria, it can allow yeast, which is not killed by antibiotics, to take over, which might cause taste disturbances or a bit of pain, can also occur in those with weakened immune systems. Typical in young children, thrush also affects people with autoimmune diseases, people with diabetes that isnt well controlled, chemotherapy patients, and the elderly.

Take-home message: -30 to 80% of people with COVID-19 report loss of smell, known as anosmia. -The likely targets of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are supporting cells in the nose that support growth of the nerve cells that allow us to smell -Anosmia treatments being studied include: Retraining the brain to smell, calming nasal inflammation and finding ways to regrow damaged nasal cells One year, my dad came down with a terrible cold and a very high fever. As with many colds hed had before, he lost his sense of smell. But this time, it didnt come back. By Christmas that year, we were all gathered in the kitchen as my dad cooked a big family dinner. My cousin, who was standing near the stove, said she smelled gas. It turned out one of the burners was no longer lit and gas was escaping quickly through the house. My dad, who had been at the stove the entire time, couldnt smell it at all. So while losing your sense of smell seems like a mere inconvenience, if you cant smell a gas leak or smoke from a fire, or
It wasnt until several years had passed after I moved out of my parents home that I could finally smell their house smell. All the years that I lived there I never knew the smell of my own house. This of course does not take into account the obvious years that we had a cat. This past summer I think I figured out the mystery of being able to smell your own house. We were away for about a month with no one staying at our house during this time. When we arrived back home there was no food or people smell to interfere with the true house smell. For once I was able to experience my house odor as if I was a stranger visiting for the first time. Overall I would say my house smelled pleasant but a bit stale, presumably from having the windows shut for so long. I was happy to know that my house didnt have any funk smell to it like some houses I have been in before ...
I opened a couple racks of ribs a couple weeks back that had a strong sulfur smell. Even after all that I could justify cooking them, rotten is rotten. If the steaks feel sticky to the touch or slimy, they need to be discarded. Bought a large bone in pork butt yesterday to cook today. Pork shoulder smells like rotten eggs. However, like thirdeye pointed out, if the smell was strong then maybe you have an alternate issue. If it doesnt then it is bad. The smell should dissipate and after a quick rinse, the pork itself shouldnt really smell much at all. That portion has a large bone and was bloodier than the rest of the piece. As I was removing the pork skin, I smelled the area where the leg was cut off from it and noticed a very slight scent of manure or something like it. I threw them out and after looking back was glad I did. It is a different smell from spoilage. Wash it off, let it sit for a few minutes, if the smell dissapates, it is cryovac funk. My mother always uses a can of lemon lime ...

Fog and mist have distinctive smells as well. The cold, crisp air of autumn and winter does heighten the smells, I think ...
A SARDS diagnosis is not something to be taken lightly. In addition to the troubling clinical signs, the permanent blindness associated with SARDS requires major adjustments for both dog and owner.. Similar to a blind person learning to use a cane and read braille, a blind dog must learn new commands. It also relies much more on smell and hearing to successfully navigate its environment. A blind dog requires more care and supervision than a seeing dog, and owners often find themselves in the position of being the seeing-eye-human for their blind dog.. The challenge of living with a blind dog is something Twyla Budz knows all too well. Her dachshund, Max, was diagnosed with SARDS in 2014 and lived with the condition until he passed away in 2016.. Twyla recalls how living with Max after he became blind was no different than a mom with a little baby. She had to learn to understand his different ways of communicating and help him adjust to his new reality.. One of the most difficult parts for her ...
So, it looks like I am in the minority (very surprising to me) of people that will choose a fragrance on smell alone, and dont care that much if it has less than optimum longevity.

What if your Holy Grail or your favorite all time fragrance, the one you cant be without, was reformulated? The reformulation smelled exactly like
Early in the pandemic, the Global Consortium for Chemosensory Research (GCCR) launched a survey in response to anecodtal reports of people losing their sense of smell or taste.. They were surprised to find that more women in their 30s and 40s were reporting the symptom.. Professor Carl Philpott, a smell expert at the University of East Anglia and one of the research members, said: We are collecting data on Covid-19 from people in 50 countries all around the world - and it all points to the fact that smell loss is a symptom.. We have found that it particularly affects some demographics, such as women in their 30s and 40s.. This is different to what we would normally see when people present with anosmia following a virus - that tends to be people who are in an older age group, more commonly in their 60s and 70s.. Our research and that from many other centres shows that for some, it can be the only symptom, or accompanied by or precede other mild symptoms.. Prof Philpott welcomed the fact the ...
