Stroke was associated with a 76 percent greater likelihood of phantom odour perception.

Adults with diagnosed, but controlled, high blood pressure reported phantom odours more frequently than those without high blood pressure.

What’s more, the researchers 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 concluded: “Stroke, angina, congestive heart failure, well-managed high blood pressure, and well-managed high cholesterol are associated with phantom odour perception.”
