The smell laboratory
Smell is the most primitive of the senses and thanks to it we can carry out such essential functions as food or sexuality and procreation. Still, the problems of smell and taste are often little taken into account, despite the great importance that this sense has for people.
Partial (hyposmia) or total (anosmia) loss of smell can have important consequences for people’s health and well-being, such as: poor nutrition or malnutrition; low sexual stimulation; low hygiene or obsession; sadness, depression and anxiety; loss of social relationships; domestic and occupational hazards.
20% of people are aware that they suffer from an alteration of smell. A timely diagnosis can help restore smell and taste.
The smell laboratory at the Maria Colomé Rhinology Clinic offers a specialized service for the diagnosis and treatment of olfactory and taste disorders, by Dr. Colomé and her team.
Attention to olfactory and taste pathologies can return up to 100% of the sense. Many patients have recovered their sense of smell and taste thanks to the care and treatment received at the Maria Colomé Rhinology Clinic.
