I have been reading the messages and questions daily and the most recent postings talk about elevated ammonia levels. A couple of months ago I had a flare up, dark urine, fatigue, headaches, super itchy skin and a few nights I woke up tasting/smelling ammonia.

The biopsy revealed stage 1 damage and stage 3 activity level.

Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! The smell of ammonia in the urine comes from "urea". Bacteria that contaminate the urine will convert chemicals in the urine into smelling chemicals that are responsible for the distinctive smell, such as ammonia. You can give his urine sample for testing. With a kidney stone chances of infection are high. Some foods like proteins cause the excretion of nitrogen compounds (ammonia and urea). Hence these foods can be reduced in diet.

increased ammonia in urine - occurring as a result of dehydration or a bladder infection, infection with trichomonas vaginalis, hypermethioninemia, and Trimethylaminuria. As the last two are uncommon conditions, it would be better to rule out the initial two causes. If your urine is very pale yellow, it is unlikely that you are dehydrated. However, it would not hurt to ensure that fluid intake is maintained over 2000 ml.

Urinary bladder infection and kidney infections do produce strong smelling urine. Another reason is dehydration. Strong ammonia smell is due to protein breakdown. However you must look at causes for the urine leak. One commonest cause is stopping the stream flow before complete bladder evacuation—some urine remains in the penile urethra. This should be milked out. Any amount of urine left on the undergarments will eventually smell.

My doctor thinks I'm crazy... Says if I had enough ammonia in my blood to smell it in my nose, I'd have serious mental issues. I always thought ammonia was a later stage cirrhosis issue and not an early warning. I didn't have this problem when I was drinking more. It has only developed during (slow) withdrawal. I know lots of fats come out of your liver during alcohol detox and I'm hoping this is just a artifact.
