1916673 tn?1420236870 The liver produces urea, which is far less toxic, and this helps to transport ammonia safely through the blood to the kidneys and then out of the body. When BUN levels are elevated, it indicates the kidneys are unable to remove the excessive amount of urea being produced. Vets will ordinarily describe a dog being uremic or azotemic when this situation occurs.
Avatar n tn I also control stress thru yoga and meditation. walking the dogs. Unlike you, I am a medical marijana user and do not use any other drugs. I don't know how much damage is permanent. I just try to avoid all high prion foods-I also have 'gout'-also caused by prions (mis shaped proteins). I cl'd the virus in 2 wks, so I've had 4 years to improve my liver health and my general health.
Avatar f tn but sometimes straining to go to bathroom, belching and burping, white spots in stool and yesterday a little blood in the stool. At the time I met with the gastro doctor, was asked if I had blood in stool and I hadn't then. I spoke with someone in his office yesterday and told her about the blood and she said, oh that's not natural.......scared me to death as I had a friend who died of colon cancer six years ago...
1969477 tn?1327552019 It's quite probable. I know that bleach and ammonia create a deadly combination, but I don't know if the amount of ammonia in dog urine is concentrated enough to be hazardous. However, if it's indoors, not well ventilated even just the solution itself could be harmful. I would suggest asking the manager to look into a new form of cleaning- due to all the illnesses it would be beneficial to have a bunch of healthy staff over sick staff and it is a work safety hazard- so they can't brush it off.
Avatar n tn Just as exercising--and walking is the very best kind for me-gave me something concret to do and I knew I was starting to lessen some damage. And my dogs won't let me forget now. My thinking was that @ least I was not adding insult to injury. Also, take care of any other health and dental problems. You need to conseve the energy for the major battle--eliminting the hep c. And 1's are much more difficult to cl than other genotypes.
163305 tn?1333672171 My wire road ( the accent from the Thai doctor who said wire road instead of viral load, anything for a laugh)is 1,125,900 ALT is 123, AST is 168 I have cirrhosis and my ammonia levels are high and white blood cells and platlets are low. I'm waiting on a snafu in paperwork, for Roche to get me going on Pegasys. I found out I have Hep in Sept. 2005 due to my cirrhosis. At first I wanted to treat it with alternative methods.
Avatar f tn -( So went to the fridge to get a beverage and there she gushed. A small puddle was at my feet. So we proceeded to pack up #1 & #2 to take them to the grandparents. With every move more and more water gushed out. Would have thought this was our first by the way hubby was acting. He loaded everyone and everything in the car. Next thing I know I hear the car start. Still in the house...trying to freshen up before going in.
Avatar n tn Protein breaks down into ammonia and high ammonia levels may contribute to brain fog. Ten or fifteen years ago, I did a low fat diet for a while. My energy level was very high. I was also exercising a lot and had little responsibilities. Six years ago, I tried a high fat/protein diet. I felt pretty sluggish and looking back, I made some bad decisions so I probably wasn't thinking clearly, I also started getting pains in my liver/gall bladder.
Avatar f tn The pregnancy tracker says to not clean out your cats litter box due to parasites in the feces. I'm curious as to whether this is true for both cats AND dogs. I have a new puppy and she still occasionally poops in the cage at night. If I'm extremely careful of not getting it on me and washing my hands and arms thoroughly afterwards....will I be OK from catching those parasites? I'm approximately 7wks pregnant and I want to make sure I keep my growing baby healthy.
1105450 tn?1375687321 Funny story. Last night the hubby came home from work and I was lying down on the bed and he laid nex to me and started to rub my belly like there is something there. I made a joke and said " rub the budda belly and make a wish" and than I laughed. So today I was talking to dh on the phone and was telling him a conversation i had with a mom at the school today about pregnancy, DH told me to be patient my time will come soon.
Avatar f tn I'm fearing she is in end stage kidney disease given some of her other symptoms (shaking/twitching, ammonia breath). I think I'm looking at quality of life care at the moment and am heart broken. Can anyone give me some direction or shared experience on how to deal with this? My vet won't give me Cerenia long term.
Avatar f tn use vingear where she has gone pee never anything with ammonia because urine has it in it and she will smell it and it will encorage her to go pee there,vingear dogs hate the smell of so they wont go pee there.
11533887 tn?1422334347 An elderly woman lived her and for 5 years allowed her dogs to do there business in the house. It smells of ammonia and I know I shouldn't breath it so I put a mask on while ripping the floors out and cleaning. I finally stopped for the day after I started getting sore and when I went to lay down I noticed it feels like the baby is shaking. She is 26 weeks along. Is this normal? Or should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn He was not by any means active but it was a 100% increase from the day prior. Still very gray and the ammonia smell in the house when i got home from work was very strong. I am starting to understand now that this really is a roller coaster ride. I know how i feel I cannot imagine how he does.

I also get thursty If I dont drink water. I start to get a dry throat and mouth... If i drink anything else that is not water my breath gets worse.. please help!
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
1358341 tn?1282213443 Research also shows that even very high protein diets do not make renal failure worse in cats (although high protein does worsen the disease in dogs and humans). (One pet food maker recently completed a study it claims shows that its restricted-protein diet increases lifespan in CRF cats. However, because the study has not yet been published, it is impossible to evaluate the data, which is contradicted by other research.
Avatar n tn He was inside pet but I took him out because he was messy with the couch and his litter and toys. But the pee is not that bad. That's only if it stays for long periods of time. It penetrates in the air and it becomes smelly but we don't realize how toxic it really is. that's why doctors don't recommend changing litter boxes without masks or gloves. But don't worry. You're okay.
Avatar f tn I've gotten a rug Dr and done the carpets numerous times and the song is just relentless.
1035252 tn?1427231433 So as if an African Grey parrot, a cockatiel, a parrotlet, a daschund/minpin mix dog, 2 kids under 3 years, and one on the way weren't enough...we got a new dog., seriously, with the fenced yard and the big house it's not an issue. She's an Australian Shepherd/blue heeler mix, about a year old...heartworm neg, spayed, all shots...and she's absolutely wonderful with the kids.
Avatar m tn I suggest treating yourself and the enviroment for 2 months to ensure that the critters are gone. Clean with bleach or ammonia and use bleach or ammonia in the wash with the hottest water. Avoid cotton as very hard to kill in cotton clothes without bleaching or get items dry cleaned. It is a battle but you can do it. Also sprinkle sulfur powder in bed sheets and on pillow to kill them while you sleep. Put sulfur in dogs bed to avoid dog problem.
Avatar n tn My 1 1/2 year old 50 lb female standard poodle has had her urine smelling like fish but some times like ammonia. She acts fine, eats and drinks well. The last few weeks she can't make it through the night with out urinating on the floor. Now she can't make it for a few hours during the day with out going on the floor. I have been giving her a homeopathic remedie for urinary tract infection along with a detoxifier twice daily.

18226532 tn?1463520489 You will see Chronic Kidney Failure in dogs and click on that. Tony started this community and you can join and get more help then you will here. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I agree with annajolly. We had two cats and got rid of them due to the ammonia smell and didn't want to even take the chance of the cat jumping into the crib and smothering the baby. Especially if they sleep with u they will think they can sleep in the babies crib too. It was easier for me to get rid of my cats cause I'm more a dog person anyway. Hope you work it out safely for your babies sake.
4043517 tn?1374010173 Went backwards, hit my head on a brick, broke at least one toe, soaked in Epsom salts, bloody and foot swollen, butt and side throbbing, goose egg on my elbow. Confused. **** this hurts. Back to like my bike wreck. I feel so awful right now. **** **** ****. Thought I had this under control. Apparently not. My foot hurts so bad. My head is swollen. Kids made me stay up until they were assured I didn't have a concussion. Oh. I forgot how much it hurts to fall. Glad my bones are relatively strong.
Avatar m tn I truly believe PATM is a combination of bacterial and fungal infection. A cheap blood test is ammonia...I also tested high for this (ammonia is alkaline and may also be contributing to the PATM reactions along with the TMA gas). None of this will cure you, but you will feel more satisfaction in knowing possible causes without wasting your money on tests that will not reveal anything (usual tests such as blood work, xrays, etc.
603946 tn?1333945439 We wracked our brains with the head vet/owner of the clinic and couldn't come up with any reason, so we've just decided to quit blaming and move on and just love this baby and concentrate on that. Here's some questions. I need advice. He has some new symptoms. 1 Despite his good appetite, he is losing weight. What causes that? I could understand if he didn't eat...... 2 his eyes are oozing brown gunk every day I wash it and it comes back. Is that dues to toxins building?
