Brief Answer: Anosmia &Ageusia treatment. Detailed Answer: Hello, XXXXX. Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum. As you mentioned that your are having these problems from many years . Your age is 79 years . There is no proven treatment for ANOSMIA after the age of 60 years. Zinc & Vitamin (especially with vitamin A )therapy are advocated by some, but no scientific proof. Taste i.e. disturbance of the sense of taste may be categorized as total ageusia . No effective treatment is available for total ageusia. No effective therapies exist for the sensorineural disorders for taste. Hope this information will help you. Good luck for you. Dr. HET
