1475202 tn?1536274577 Also a couple of days ago due to my ammonia level being high (68) I took a zinc sulfate 220mg prescibed by my specialist to help with the ammonia. In less than a hour I was experiencing the worst pain I ever had. It was in my entire abdominal area and all the way across my lower back. Finally I tried a warm bath and it took the pain away.

Avatar f tn Poodlegirl75, SW21, I did not think about the one possibility where an Alkaline diet is contra-indicated, and that is when there's an accumulation of ammonia in the brain. (Leaky Brain Syndrome) It is common with Lyme Disease as it is caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria. Ammonia itself is an alkaline substance and an alkaline diet will only worsen the effects of the accumulated ammonia in overalkalized parts of the body like the brain, heart and the liver.
1358341 tn?1282213443 Hello, my 19yo cat cured from CRF, but I'll have to continue treatment. And I don't know if after being cured, if she shall continue treatment or not, because usually cats don't get cured of CRF. She'll soon re-start her treatment: Renalzin + Probiavi probiotics, Renalzin made her Phosphorus get lower and the probiotics made her Urea get lower, and both made the Creatinine get back to normal levels:

Avatar f tn A lot of doctors simply don't check for toxins or parasitic exposure. I have Hepatic Encephalopathy, which causes ammonia toxicity and other toxins to build up in my blood and pass thru the blood/brain barrier, due to a cirrhotic liver, and it presents very similar to your symptomology. I wish you the best.
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 DETOXIFYING AMMONIA Ammonia toxicityIn part 2 of AMMONIA TOXICITY we are going to find out what we can do to remove ammonia from our body, both by supporting the organs involved in processing and disposing of it, and by taking supplements with an affinity for removing ammonia. We have seen that there are 3 organ systems in the body that produce and/or deal with ammonia: the liver, the kidneys and the intestines.
Avatar m tn *glutamine (glutamate) and succinate (the precursors of GABA) * low levelsB1 and B6 * low minerals zinc, manganese and iron * chronic stress and pain * alcohol withdrawal * inadequate sleep * low levels of progesterone * mercury and lead exposure 4. GABA supplementation is associated with extremely few side effects in the recommended dosages. 5.
Avatar n tn You are taking the right vitamin supplements for hair loss, and it may not stop or stay at same level. It is hard to predict. You definetly should have liver enzymes and pancreatic enzymes and blood workup and it is recommended to be repeated every six months. You should not be taking this drug if pregnant. I assume that you and your psychiatrist are certain about the diagnosis, but if you have any doubt about it, it should be reviewed.

1454997 tn?1285872073 The medications I'm on now are xifaxin, lactulose, spironolactone, furosemide, calcitriol, ursidiol, omeprazole, multivitamin, omega-3, and zinc. Oh, and cipro one tablet a week. My doctor doesn't want to put me on interferon because I'm genotype 1a and he thinks the new medicines about to be approved by the FDA would be better. I guess he want to keep me as a naive responder when I do take them. I was up for a transplant 18 month ago, but I improved and my viral count is about 300,000.
Avatar n tn As diabetics have higher oxidative stress, SD might be needed in larger quantities. SD needs Copper to work and its thought that zinc is needed to stabilize it. If you are low in zinc, SD might not be as stable and might allow copper to break away. The temporarily freed copper might cause the smell. And since some diabetics are also low in zinc, it seems plausible. Maybe try supplementing with zinc and see if the smell disappears?
Avatar n tn please, get Goldenseal, zinc with a percentage of copper and pau d'arco from a vitamin shop. 2 goldenseal and 2pau d'arco 3times a day and the zinc, 1time a day for 1 month. in the 4th day, you will start getting changes in the bad smell in your room, cloths, car, etc.

This was an strong ammonia odor. I was drinking a lot of water but rarely went to the bathroom and when i did the urine was completely clear. I developed tremors (i had tremors with magnesium deficiency but these tremors were more rapid), my pH dropped below 5.
Avatar f tn Yes, there's lots that you can do to try to improve both quality and longevity of life. Nothing is guaranteed with this disease, and sometimes even the very best of management doesn't work. It really depends how much working kidney tissue is left undamaged. The focus of management and treatment is to relieve stress on the kidneys, so that they can function for longer. There is no stopping the degeneration, but it can be slowed down. Let me have all the info you can ...
