The authors reflect on the olfactory dysfunction of patients having type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and the microvascular disease manifestation. They note the association of hypertension and T2DM with the threshold-discrimination-identification score. They agree on the attribution of olfactory dysfunction development to olfactory nerve impairment making it as central neuropathy manifestation.
