Ammonia and its salts

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia and its salts


Avatar f tn Since last visit to vets approx 11 days ago, we changed diet to pasta and fish and no vomiting until today, and even then not a lot. Have looked up bile salts on i/net but unsure whether it is a LACK of bile salts or EXCESS bile salts causing the vomiting? Not due back at vets for 10 days or so. Dog on Vit E, Milkthistle compound and Biostrath from us and antiobiotics and liver supplment from vets.
Avatar n tn I have begun to wonder though. Right now I am sitting with very high ammonia levels and all my liver tests come back normal. Docs have stopped 2 meds I take for bipolar thinking they were causing it. Ammonia level only climbed. Big mystery for me but I'm usually 1 in a million shot anyway. I wouldn't give it a second thought if I were you. IF you have some complication in 15 yearws I'll bet they'll have a shot or something to fix it real quick.
Avatar f tn Triple antioxidants are effective at preventing cirrhosis and cancer in CHC, and are also effective against fatigue, depression, pain, and GI disturbance (most bile-producing reactions in the liver depend on GSH and taurine is an important constituent of bile salts).

Avatar n tn Treatments When varices result, they can be treated with a reduction of salt intake and diuretics, which help eliminate excess salts and fluids from the body. Coma and encephalopathy are treated by a reduction of protein intake, and hemorrhage from varices can be stopped by sclerotherapy (injection of a scarring chemical into the bleeding vein).

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.
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 The doctor doesn't seem to no what it is and the last doctor i saw said it was just me and my body and its somthing that i do. Lately they have been happening more frequently, Ive had 6 attacks since December 07. it is really quite scary and i would love to find a cure.
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.

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 m tn I don't know what happens if lye and bleach meet but I do know that ammonia and bleach can kill you, I forget what they make when they meet but it is a very toxic gas/vapor.
Avatar m tn It also helps activate the cilia in your nose and lungs. Another folk remedy is to drink apple cider vinegar, which its proponents claim will thin out your mucus. I’ve never tried it, but you can look it up on the internet if you want to try it. A food that certainly helps clear out the congestion in your head is the chile pepper. In fact, the active ingredient in all hot peppers, capsaicin, is being used by some doctors to treat sinusitis.
Avatar f tn If there is too much ammonia, there is a stool softener called lactulose that also rids your body of ammonia. If you have too much ammonia, it can cause dementia(not able to concentrate, and generally acting goofy) and even brain damage and death. Get your blood checked!!

1396846 tn?1332463110 You have to dabble with the various diets and softeners that will work for you. Its ok to uswe some drastic measures now, but whatever you do, don't start using laxatives, enemas or colonoscopy preps with any regularity, it can set up a condition in your colon that gets to the point you are dependent on these aids. And that is worse than the constipation. Get your immediate relief and then focus on what you can do differently with your diet that might help.
3624762 tn?1349398652 It can elevate ammonia levels which can be very problematic with those with cirrhosis. And do take a multivitamin without iron.
Avatar n tn Maybe there is a common denominator? Personally, I am taking an educated guess and I stronly suspect it has its roots in some type of digestive problem. I started the Renew parasite cleanse today. I am also trying to avoid dairy, except for natural plain yogurt and avoiding too much sugar and processed foods. Lots of green veggies all last week too in anticipation for starting the cleanse.
Avatar m tn that leans tword diabetes if its ammonia like or metalic could be kidneys. just let the doctor know all of your symptoms and likely they will refer you to someone more appropriate. have you ever been exposed to heavey metals? as far as testing for lyme, even if there are no labs that do that in europe test samples can be sent over seas.
1548538 tn?1293875433 It has no sulphates or parabens or perfumes or dyes. And it cleans my hair and its not insanely expensive. It doesn't seem to get rid of the whole condition, but at least my scalp has stopped itching like crazy! I seem to have developed some sensitivities to stuff, and I am thinking this may be linked to some kind of allergy. Anyway, its good not to have insanely itchy scalp anymore!!
Avatar m tn I think they need to lesson cause theres something there...I know it and you know it they put me on Zolf and paxil its still there...So I know its not in my mind Ive stopped talking to my husband bout it seems he dosent care..
Avatar m tn My initial notion is that some microscopic bed bugs had been transferred to by body by that bed and could be easily exterminated by means of hot water and aerosols. By all means these didnt help. Then i consulted my doctor and was told its due to allergic reaction. I had an allergic shot and given some meds. Somehow the intensity or could described by frequency of the sensation has reduced significantly two or three days after.
Avatar n tn Thanks KDG, I tried eating some yogurt each morning and the odor seems to have disappeared. So far so good, and its been two weeks and no odor.
Avatar f tn I had the same problem you did and I tried everything but my friend told me she used the vasiline oil. You can buy it at the grocery store and its the brazilian oil and its brown. I always put lotions and other oils on and all it would do is burn and itch worse and this is the only thing that's ever work for me, so you should try it out.
Avatar n tn She gags and it just comes up, its always clear or foamy and she only does it at night. She always sleeps through the night so when I hear her whine or cry I know something is wrong. She also is putting her hands behind her head on her neck as if this part of her body hurts her. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Avatar n tn You need to continue the medication for couple of weeks as advised by your doctor and try to avoid trigger factors like alcohol, smoking and stress. It is better to consult a neurologist and get evaluated. Take care and updated on your thoughts and progress.
Avatar m tn seems to be quite a trend here. I wonder if its related to TMJ? I have mentioned it to the optometrist and DR and neither of them have any idea what it is.
