New research shows most older adults have problems with a least one of their senses.

The study of 3,000 seniors found 94-percent had loss in one sense and 40-percent had issues with two of their senses.

Declines in taste and touch were the most common complaints.

Experts say nerve loss, environmental factors or genetics may cause sensory problems.

28 percent had problems with three or more of their senses.
