Some people with cancer experience taste changes during or after cancer treatment. Foods may taste differently than before, or bland.

Every food may taste the same and then there is that awful metallic or chemical taste in your mouth.

One tip is to set your table with plastic instead of metal silverware if cancer treatment leaves you with that metallic taste in your mouth. We have popped some Fruit Tingles in our Kit. They are often recommended to combat that taste.

Remember to make a note in your journal and discuss you taste change with your medical team as it can affect your ability to eat leading to loss of appetite causing weight loss and food aversions.

Taste changes caused by chemotherapy usually stop about 3 to 4 weeks after treatment ends.
