Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia and ice


Avatar m tn my mother was very lethargic and we took her to ER. She had an ammonia levels of 169. would this be the reason and is this related to the liver?
5611452 tn?1370974704 Shelley, the lactulose is really essential for managing your digestive tract and minimizing the build up of ammonia and other toxins. The higher the ammonia level, the more severe the HE, and the more severe the HE, the more difficult it will be for you and your liver doc to manage your liver disease. You have to control the HE, so that you can manage your meds, your diet, and other aspects of your liver care. Please don't skip your lactulose.
263988 tn?1281957896 I smelled ammonia earlier today ... I don't use ammonia for cleaning. And I have a housekeeper who comes in once a month and she uses no ammonia products. And she hasn't been here for about three weeks. I smelled the ammonia. Also heard bell ringing sounds afterwards. Then about two hours later I was sitting at my computer with my computer glasses on. So I know this isn't caused by not wearing my glasses. I was only using my computer for a short time to play this word game online.
1391695 tn?1298143389 My daughter is a stylist and does my hair and she could notice the thinning but no one at work seemed to notice. She uses only professional products which contained ammonia and peroxide and my hair didn't fall out any faster or become dry and brittle. In my opinion, having my hair done proffesionally kept my hair healthy because we colored only the roots and didn't overlap the color and expose already colored hair to the chemicals.
263988 tn?1281957896 I smelled ammonia which wasn't there and heard bell ringing afterwards. Two hours later I was playing this word game online. Suddenly, my eyes and brain couldn't work together. Normally, I play the game in an automatic mode because I know the words so well I don't need to concentrate on how to make the words. This time I couldn't do it. And ever since then, I can't play the game without the symptoms coming on again. It takes only 5 to 10 minutes and it's happening again.
Avatar n tn They include conditions such as metabolic defects and a procedure called a ureterosigmoidostomy, but it seems unlikely that you have any of these. As the liver fails, ammonia and other chemicals (that are typically cleared by the liver) rise in the blood. Many patients with high ammonia levels from liver disease develop a condition called hepatic encephalopathy and develop symptoms such as forgetfulness, confusion and lethargy. We call this hepatic encephalopathy.
Avatar n tn PLease help I am a little stressed. Last week My boyfriend and I went to a friends birthday dinner. The person sitting next to my boyfriend is HIV positive and also has Hep. B. After eating from his spoon, the hiv positive friend picked up some ice cream from another persons plate(with the same spoon) and put it on my boyfriends bowl whichmy bf ate straight away before I could say anything. Ive been stressing ever since. Can either of those be caught?
Avatar n tn Can- do your right know one knows ice cream like NY girl. LOL It must be a NY thing, I'm also a ice cream lover, and have to have it every night.
Avatar m tn Bear in mind that people with cirrhosis need to be mindful of where they get their protein from and how they can end up with too much ammonia because of it. But those of us who don't have that kind of liver damage don't need to worry. Once I thought about it, I realized it made sense that with the onslaught of the tx drugs and how they seemed to be breaking me down that it would be helpful to have protein to build myself back up.
Avatar f tn The ammonia goes to the brain and causes altered brain function. Lactulose comes as liquid to take by mouth. It usually is taken three or four times a day for liver disease. It should be taken so the patient has 3-4 bowel movements per day. To manage high blood pressure Portal Hypertension Medications such as propranolol and isosorbide may be prescribed to lower the pressure in the portal vein and reduce the risk of recurrent bleeding.
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...
18514143 tn?1465892514 I was taking Serrapeptase, Curcumin (Turmeric) and Milk Thistle, along with Mega B Complex Vitamins and a few other things. I was maintaining rather well and I got lax and started taking it here and there, not watching fluid and sodium intake and just generally acting as if I were well……. Bad Idea, to say the least. I spent several weeks in the hospital due to fluid buildup in my lungs from the ascites and my MELD numbers were just all over the place.
Avatar n tn ) I suggest a box of your favorite cookies, some ice cream and the remote control. Saturday's now make me happy :) Good luck/.
496771 tn?1209698358 This kit is PPD-, resorcinol- and ammonia-free, and uses vegetarian, plant-based dyes to permanently fix color. Also available: color protecting shampoo and conditioner, and semi-permanent tinting kits. You can find reviews all over that confirm its SAFE. I have done months of research trying o find a safe hairdye & this is the first i have know. I have found people who are severly allergic to PPD & has used this with no reaction at all.
2094297 tn?1345392693 Also, my pee smelled like ammonia, and the socks started hurting my ankles and leaving marks.
Avatar m tn I had two of them yesterday and all the sudden my hands and feet were like ice blocks this morning, and I'm getting dizziness standing up again. Is Iron overload even a possibility with these numbers??
Avatar m tn From a control stand point, as Bill1954 points out, it's important to stay away from red meat -- vegetable proteins and fish are the best sources of protein to help control ammonia. My husband has replaced much of his red-meat consumption with peanut butter, sardines, beans, and such. He personally abhors tofu, so for him, it's lots of nuts (almonds, cashews, etc.) and occasional cheese or eggs or ice cream as a treat.
3097131 tn?1357088481 I like to have a fresh baked Cake and Pies around.What about Ice Cream at night,my favorite and I still eat it too. Sorry I'm such a bother,but I'm starving trying to eat right!
233616 tn?1312790796 meaning we need to keep our systems moving and carbs, some carbs, are full of fiber and moisture as well and ergo help us to stay regular and keep ammonia and other toxins from building up. Ergo, I don't think carbs should be eliminated, but I do think a good regime is a well balanced diet, with plenty of fiber, low glycemic carbs...(brown vs. white rice, wheat vs. white breads, low to no sugar, lots of veggies and some fruits.
Avatar n tn Hospice suggested withholding anything given orally, meds, food, and water because it might trigger another episode of vomiting (red blood is worse). Thinking I had to give her something as her lips cracked from dryness I gave her an ice chip and started the vomiting one more time. She finally fell into a restless sleep her hands fidgeting constantly even in sleep. After praying and knowing she was in pain I gave her .5 ml of Oxycodone and a sip of water that she was able to hold down.
211940 tn?1267884866 once a week to physical therapy, twice a week to acupuncture, 600mg Advil 3-times a day and ice as often as I can remember. The physical therapy is minimal stretching. It is the most frustrating thing but it does seem to be getting better - I've been suffering for appx 4 months, I still have pain at night, but it's getting a little better.
233616 tn?1312790796 In light of the fact that I am currently UND and have no virus, the reversal of fatty liver and less necrosis and less HCC all sounds very appealing, not to mention any reduction in IR would mean ones own Interferon response would be better post tx. and this alone may increase ones chances of an SVR even if begun at the end of an SOC regime. Perhaps now, more than any other time it could help insure one will recognize any lingering HCV and seek and destroy as designed.

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.
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Ice cream ice cream ice cream and more ice cream again! I had the tongue ulcers REALLY bad throughout my entire 72 weeks and eating became a real chore because everything hurt. But ice cream well...what a treat to have an excuse to eat it as much as I wanted! All those FLAVORS! And the nice fat for the riba to bind to!!! Honestly - on treatment eat what you can that you decide makes YOU feel well.
Avatar f tn I can't speak for over the counter color but almost all professional color products are made with much gentler ingredients and much lower ammonia or no ammonia. Most have a very mild smell. Saying that though, some times hormonal changes can cause a lightner(bleach) to have unpredictable results. Like maybe staying a bit brassier than you'd like. But I personally have never encountered that problem.
Avatar n tn This is my example of a positive post. I quit drinking 16 years ago because I finally got convicted of DUI. I Quit using Methamphedamine "Crystal, Meth, Dope, Ice, Whatever you want to call it" Dec 13, 2001 after using for 8 months, when they took me to jail for "posession with intent to manufacture sell or distribute" "Posession of precurssers to meth" Posession of "anhydrous ammonia", and last but not least "felon in posession of a hand gun".
Avatar m tn 2 oz of liver pate if you like liver pate (I made sandwiches out of this for awhil but after I got nauseated the pate had to go, LOL) Whole foods stores and co-ops will have Greek Yogurt and probably also the trendier markets and food places and maybe the more up scale markets. Any time I eat a meal but don't know exactly how much fat is in it, I add 20 gms with eggnog or whipping cream to be sure. Hope this helps. Best wishes for SVR.
Avatar f tn A pedicure, a trip to a store for a cute outfit and stopping for ice cream or water ice : )
