Anosmia, or the loss of smell, can be partial or total, though a total loss of smell is relatively uncommon.

Although a loss of smell rarely signals a serious ailment, it can make you lose interest in eating, which may result in weight loss, malnutrition, or even depression. Loss of smell also prevents you from fully tasting and enjoying food.

Normal aging is frequently the cause of a progressive, total, and permanent loss of smell. Other nasal obstructions, such as polyps, can also contribute to at least a partial loss of smell. The common cold is also a frequent cause for a partial, temporary loss of smell. Chronic sinus infection and other nasal obstructions, such as polyps, can also have this effect.
