hi, for the past 3-4...
hi, for the past 3-4 days, ive had a creamy/milky taste in my mouth, i have no idea why this is? any idea? even when i brush my teeth its still there. is there anything i can take for this? i read online it could be something to do with too much protein, or i may need to change my diet, but my diet is generally good.

Hello and welcome to justanswer!

There could be few reasons for this taste.One , there is a possibility that you are deficient in Vit.D and Iron so take these vitamins and do a CBC .Also sometimes there is bacterial infections in mouth causing Aphthous ulcers or slight stomatitis with such taste.Use pineapple juice and antibiotics after seeing your dentist.Sometimes , a renal issue can cause such a taste, so please do a urine R/E and a renal function test.Good luck.
Hope i have answered your question.

ok, well what type of food can i eat for iron? i dont really eat alot of food with iron in it. so it could be that, it usually comes on of a night. ive been weeing fine and so i doubt its a bladder problem. whats a CBC? would multivitamins affect this taste? or too much protein or is that a myth?
Doctor: Dr. Haroon Iqbal, Doctor replied 8 years ago
A CBC is 'Complete Blood Count'.This test will tell the real picture of your blood , and if there is iron defficiency.You must use iron rich foods and for details of such foods please follow this link.

You can do serum protiens , but i doubt if they produce such tatse.Instead of taking supplementary multivitamins , better use fresh fruit , vegetables and beef to make it a balanced diet, and once you use such diets the bad tatse will likely to disappear.Good luck.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
