Why do I get sweet taste in my mouth after losing some weight?
Hello, I am 19 years old male. For a week I have experienced a very sweet taste in my mouth. Every time I drink even water, it tastes very sweet. I have also lost a lot of weight. What could it be? Can anyone tell me what causes this?
@fino Hello, Metabolic problems, such as diabetes, ketosis, or a thyroid disorder. Metabolic disorders can affect the body's ability to taste, causing a background sweet taste in the mouth and a large preference for very sweet-tasting foods. Neurological problems, such as stroke, seizure disorder, or epilepsy. One condition that comes to mind that involves both sudden onset weight loss and a sweet taste in the back of the mouth is diabetes. Excessive urination, excessive thirst, and sudden-onset weight loss are all signs of diabetes and require immediate medical attention. the sudden weight loss and sweet taste which may be an indication of uncontrolled diabetes. This requires immediate medical attention from your primary care physician. Thanks!
