2012-11-19 16:30

Sweet taste in mouth is a very annoying problem for patients with diabetes. It mainly occurs in the morning or after a nap even if they do not have anything sweet.

The patients are confused by the sweet taste and don’t know why. Here is an explanation for the condition for people living with diabetes.

Candy, ice cream, chocolate and other sweet things can attributed to sweet taste in mouth for people with diabetes. The other causes responsible for the condition in diabetes mainly include:

1. High blood sugar is one of causes of sweet taste in diabetes. As blood sugar level increases, it can elevate the sugar level in saliva, thus resulting in sweet taste in mouth.

2.Poorly controlled blood glucose results in diabetic ketoacidosis. The body could not use glucose as a fuel adequately in diabetes. Instead, the body use fat as fuel, which can cause the metabolic products--ketones to build up in body, thus resulting in ketoacidosis.

3.Third reason for the annoying waste taste in mouth for people with diabetes is diabetic neuropathy. As nerves are damaged, they fail to regulate the sensation of taste. It also can attribute to the annoying taste in mouth.

4.Some medicines for diabetes may affect one’s taste sense and decrease the salivary secretion.

The above are the major attributable factors to sweet taste in mouth for people with diabetes. We can see that the underlying cause of the annoying taste is diabetes itself.
