Everything tastes bad

Hallo
This is the second time this happens to my friend in about 8 months. Every time he eats something or drink it taste funny. It doesn' t taste the way it used to. It' s like his tongue tastebuds doesn' t work. Everything taste disgusting. He can not even drink coffee then. Please do you have a slight solution?

2. Radiation therapy for cancers
3. Exposure to certain chemicals(insecticides and some medications like antibiotics and antihistamines)
4. Head injury
5. surgery to the ear, nose, and throat

Treatment will depend on the cause.
