The link above is the thread I made a week ago about loosing my taste and smell, it made front page and gathered hundreds of comments which made my case worst

Before I proceed, I would like to advise people that take advantage of everything to make mockery, over 80% of the comments I got said it's covid 19, some of them were just catching it as fun without knowing the effects it leaves on the person

Back to what happened, after loosing my taste and smell, I went to lab which tasted that I had too many caffeine in my system and my sugar level was high due to my excessive intake of Pepsi (I drank Pepsi everyday)

Doctor assured me that my smell and taste would be back if I quit mineral drinks and sugary things and with constant consumption of the drugs given to me

I was very healthy all the while till I opened that thread, everybody said it's covid 19, suddenly I started having headache, I went deeper in research about covid 19 symptoms and automatically almost all the symptoms I found online started happening to me

Being someone with high rate of spiritual knowledge, I discovered that Satan has showed up, I canceled my plan of reaching out to ncdc and bounced into prayers

I chased the certain demon of fear away, I was very much aware when the demon left,

Note.. My lost of taste and smell was caused by excessive mineral intake and not spiritual but Satan used the opportunity to trap me with fear

My drugs finished on Wednesday and I went on 3 days dry fasting the same Wednesday and finished by 12 noon today, My taste and smell is back, all the symptoms gone

Note.. My fasting didn't bring back my taste and smell, my abstainance from mineral and taking drugs did

My fasting and prayers chased away the spirit of fears which Satan used the opportunity to sent that could have sent me to ncdc which could have lead to quarantine,

My major reason of sharing this, is to tell you all to stop this covid 19 accusations in every little complain laid by someone

Am free, my taste and smell is back, thank you

You didn't test for covid 19 before ruling it out. Anyway, Thank God for you. My anosmia has lasted for five days now. Noticed a very slight improvement today when I smelled My body spray, but still a far cry.

Anosmia has Been added as an early covid symptom by WHO. Majority of infected don't show any serious symptoms till they fully recover. Many people in Nigeria are currently complaining of it. Coincidence? I don't think so.

Thank God for you.

I gave you the advice to go get checked for your sugar level, I'm glad you heeded that advice and got on the prescribed drugs immediately.

Diabetes is indeed a silent killer and has been on the increase since the lockdown because people just consume all sorts without burning them out through activities or exercises.

While most people on that thread were making a mockery of you and saying you had COVID, I was just silently shaking my head.

Please guys, even when you feel you are showing early signs of COVID or whatever, always do check your sugar levels.

That matter dey kpai people anyhow and e no funny one bit oh.

Na God save me for the thing hand.

Bravo.. Very Direct and apt.

I hope doctors learn from this, because series of tests are the only means to determine the true cause of an ailment. This covid era taught me a lot of things.

It's been four months since I stopped taking soft drinks and I haven't died but I am healthier, my sugar level is normal (4.2). The only liquid I take now is either water or yoghurt, and coupled with exercises.


Many thanks to Nisa Premier hospital in Abuja, one of the best hospitals in Nigeria, not all these other fake doctors in some hospitals who google symptoms and scare the shittt outta you with wrong diagnosis, thereby prescribing drugs for what is not even wrong with you.

I have to stop you guys from spreading false information.
Diabetes does not usually cause loss of taste and smell sensations.
Post viral anosmia is a reality in the medical field(it could be any of the viruses that affect the respiratory tract, it mustn't be covid 19).
Those who told you it could be covid 19 were right.
You not going for covid-19 test to verify that before condemning them are wrong.
Post viral anosmia recovers with or without treatment after a few days or weeks; it has no business with you reducing your sugar intake.
Your intake of sugary drinks can contribute to your raised sugar level, but has no business with your loss of smell and taste sensations.
Finally, that doctor that told you Diabetes/sugary drinks caused your anosmia should have his certificates verified, unless you quoted him wrongly, as most Nigerians often do.

I have lost my sense of smell for some days now, though my taste buds are intact, plus since two Sundays now, I've been down with fever, headache and high body temperature. Used antibiotics and anti malaria the first week, i felt better, but the second week was worst, had to use herbs, now i feel better, then lost my sense of smell.
My head still never correct oo, but i feel better.

The only sensible post read so far.

How can high blood sugar level( hyperglycemia) cause loss of smell??
I forgive you for your ignorance though.

Corona virus is real. 2 people in my household had it. One for 3 weeks+ and the other for 2 weeks. Both recovered.

A lot of people are sick in large numbers now in Nigeria. If you lose your sense of smell and taste, if you have chest problems, fever or constant headaches that make you sleep a lot......you have the coronavirus. The most evident is the constant increased fever and very hard headache that hits your head constantly. You would not like light and even the lowest song coming through your TV can sound so banging to your head.

So if you have these symptoms, have them inject you with Triaxin and Chlorophynecol for 5 days. Or any other strong antibiotics you can think of.

Then after you are done with the injections, start with Ciprotab tablets and finish the whole dose

Do not engage in sexual intercourse whilst you have these symptoms because you would pass it to your partner.

The virus can blur your vision on and off. Sometimes your vision could seem like its fading out and in, at different times

Most importantly eat healthy soups. Mostly herbal. Eat a lot of vegetables.

And always check your faeces/poo. If it comes out yellow and black or mostly black, it should be a little bit flaky when you break it with water.
It would spread out in water and look like Quaker Oats or dry leaves. Monitor your poop as it would exhibit a lot of strange appearances when the antibiotics are fighting it

A lot of people have it already in Nigeria but the recovery rate is very high. Please protect yourself especially the money you touch and the mode of public transportation you use.

Spread the awareness and save a life. We are past the doubting phase now

So a doctor told you that:
-Excessive sugar and caffeine caused your loss of taste.
-Dr also told you that your high sugar level was caused by your excessive intake of Pepsi?
-There was also a test done that detected high level of caffeine in your system,a laboratory test in a laboratory in Nigeria?
What will one not hear.

The problem is that I find it odd that a Dr told u your high sugar test result was caused by your intake of Pepsi.
Pls,if I may ask:how many bottles of Pepsi did u use to consume on the average a day?Or how many bottles did u tell him u used to consume a day?

I lost my sense of taste and smell too but recovered after taking malaria drugs and antibiotics. Covid 19 is real. Op you sounded like having the virus is a dead sentence, you were comfortable with having high sugar than corona, do you know what it means to have high sugar? Corona virus is a study in progress, new discovery are made everyday. It is just like malaria if you don't have any aliment like this diabetes, which you are comfortable to have. No need to fast and pray, just obey and observed the given guidelines and you will be fine. Corona virus is treatable. I am Katier00, I am a covid19 survivor. It came, I saw and I conquered

Re: My Taste And Smell Is Back by ceejayluv(m): 7:28pm On Jun 14, 2020
My sense of smell is gradually returning.... I'll say it's at 40 percent capacity.

I got Otrivin to clear congestion, Piriton to fight post viral allergy (Whether it's Corona, or common cold, or influenza). Vitamin C, Zinc for immune boost. Also anti malaria to get rid of any underlying parasites. Not forgetting Ginger and Steam inhalation.

Then the Dr or whoever told you that you had high sugar levels caused by intake of 2 bottles of Pepsi was either:
(1) lying about any actual, empirical sugar test being done,or
(2) Not a Dr but claiming to be one.
I am guessing you meant all these people that carry computers about and claim to be able to find out everything about your body with that "magnetic computer scan".
Happy for you

Answer me this @OP, what happened then in the case of the many Pastors, Christians, Preachers, the world over, who fasted and prayed only to end up 6ft under?
Before you say "favor" of God, I feel it right to remind you according to your Bible, God is not a God of favor! undecided undecided undecided
My second question to you is, how come 100's of thousands around the world, who are not as spiritually inclined as you claim to be, also have reported having recovered from the exact same symptoms you worked yourself through hell and back from through, again, prayer and fasting?

now I know where you got it wrong, it's because you didn't read my post before commenting, I made it clear that my fasting and prayers didn't cure me

My fasting and prayers was about the sudden fears which was a Satanic manipulations

Anyway, my test wasn't in a big hospital but was done by a professional
