High blood pressure: The smell 'more frequently' reported among patients with hypertension

“Congestive heart failure and anti were associated with three times and 2.8 times the odds of phantom odour perception among adults 40 to 50 years and 60 years and older, respectively.”

Adults with diagnosed, but controlled, high cholesterol reported phantom odours more frequently than those without high cholesterol, according to the findings.

The researchers also found that adults with diagnosed but controlled, high blood pressure reported phantom odours more frequently than those without high blood pressure.

“We observed a threefold greater odds of phantom odour perception among adults aged 60 years and older with diabetes, but only among those who use both insulin and oral medications,” they added.
