How can you help people who have anosmia?

Anosmia, the loss of smell, affects approximately 5% of the population and can blight the lives of sufferers. The consequences to well being of those with this condition can be severe and include depression, anxiety, aggression, feelings of isolation as well as weight gain/weight loss. Within this group are people with parosmia, a condition where odors are so distorted that food becomes a nauseating ordeal. We need more research into this poorly understood field.
