    Salty Taste

    Hello all, I've had this taste going on 3 years now. Does anyone else have
    this salty taste and Hypothyroidism? I am begining to believe
    the 2 are related. Any feedback is most welcome .

    Re: Salty Taste

    Clippity, salty taste is definitely a sign of hypoT. My mother had that aggravation for years before she was diagnosed hypo. She saw no less than 1 dentist and 4 doctors to find out why the taste was always there. The final MD she saw before giving up told her to see a psychiatrist. It was about 4 or 5 years later that the hypoT was finally diagnosed, and research into the condition led me to discover that aberrent taste is a common symptom. So is burning tongue, which I had.

    Have you been diagnosed? In treatment now?

    Re: Salty Taste

    I am a treated hypothyroid patient, but have never noticed that symptom. Some other possible reasons for that salty taste are:

    Dehydration.
    Side effect of certain medications.
    Salivary gland diseases.
    Post-nasal drainage.

    Possible, but more rare ... nutritional deficiency, endocrine disorder or neurological disorder, such as epilepsy or migraine.

    Hi Erin,
    Yes, I know all those other reasons you mentioned. None of
    them apply to me. Thanks for your post.

    Re: Salty Taste

    Hi Midwest1,

    You were the first person to reply to my question 3 years ago.
    As you can see I am still trying to find answers. I have been in treatment
    for many years now for the HypoT. I'm pretty much convinced now that
    HypoT and the salty taste affect some, but not all people. I am just one
    of the ones it does. I am glad that is my worst ailment. Thanks.

    Midwest-I have had Hypothyroidism for 20 years and am taking Synthroid. Have had many tests. Drs. have no clue.

    Re: Salty Taste

    I am Hypo and have been for 16 years and recently have been having a salty taste. Don't know what it is. It comes and goes. Suppose it's one of those things we have to put up with.
