Metallic Taste — a Bad Patient Experience
Actually, the technical medical term for metallic taste is “dysgeusia”, but most patients call it metallic taste, metal mouth, bitter taste, acid taste, etc. It is caused by certain chemotherapy drugs and radiation. Research has found that: (1) over 50% of patients experience it; (2) it can last from one week to 3 months; (3) it is extremely frustrating to patients; and (4) it’s the second most bothersome side effect (second only to hair loss). Please visit our Research page for a list of the offending drugs, more interesting facts and research references.
Four Legs of Recovery
We like to think of cancer recovery as a table with four legs: (1) diagnosis; (2) treatment plan; (3) chemo/radiation/surgery; and (4) nutrition/hydration. Hydration is essential, not only for patient experience, but also for recovery and healing. Without it, the body can experience significant and even life threatening damage — particularly from chemotherapy treatment as the body must flush out the drug or the drug will attack the kidney and liver. Until we discovered Aqua Delight, the hydration component was tough for those suffering from metallic taste — many had to be admitted to the hospital for IV rehydration. Fortunately, with Aqua Delight, that can now be avoided.
