Metallic taste: 37 F from PA notes: Metallic taste in mouth for a month. perfect health! What could it be? ANS: in my 50 year experience the most common cause is that you have a problem causing your saliva to contain too much potassium. The most common cause would be one of the forms of Primary Aldosteronism. Other findings would be high blood pressure and low blood potassium.

Metallic taste: Usually means bleeding. Do you brush gently 2x/day for 2 full minutes each time? Do you floss or Water Pik daily? Do you have professional cleaning every 6 months? If not, may have compromised gum tissue that may be readily treated by your Dentist. Please schedule a check-up.
