Experts state that the smell and taste disorders seen in children who have survived the coronavirus may cause eating disorders in children.
Doctors state that the smell and taste disorders seen in children who have survived the coronavirus may cause food selection and eating disorders in children. Experts announced that the symptom called ‘parosmia’ was seen for the first time in adolescence.
Parosmia, which is defined as a disorder of different odors and generally poor perception, is a side effect seen in adults with Covid.
However, it is possible that this situation is not noticed in children who are thought to choose food.
The University of East Anglia and the non-governmental organization Fifth Sense in England prepared a guide to help understand whether children show signs of parosmia.
Doctors Announce What They See for the First Time During Adolescence
“I think many parents are anxious and do not know what to do,” says Professor Carl Philpott of the University of East Anglia.
Professor Philpott said: “This disorder can make children feel cold from food, many of them even having trouble eating.”
Professor Philpott says that for the first time in his professional life, he started seeing patients with parosmia in adolescence. It is thought that the reason for the spread of parosmia may be the Covid.
