I should mention I found a blurb from Dr. Oz about zinc

http://www.oprah.com/own-ask-oprahs-all-stars/Ask-Oprahs-All-Stars-Is-This-Normal_1/9

Portions I found interesting:

"There are a couple of things that cause loss of taste. One of them is zinc deficiency, and so I want you to start taking thirty milligrams zinc lozenges. I give this to all my patients who I operate on because after heart surgery a lot of people lose their sense of taste."

I had a surgery a few months ago, shortly before losing sense of taste.

"There's no treatment except for the zinc that I mentioned to you. Zinc deficiency - you need zinc to be able to turn on the taste buds so please try that and please give it six weeks it takes a while to restore those levels."

There it is from a doctor - it takes quite a while to get your taste back from taking zinc supplements, so give it a good long try.
