Ammonia breath

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia breath


1008841 tn?1293602560 What is your MELD score from your last blood test? Are you compensated or decompensated? If you are compensated, have you talked to your doc about hepatitis C treatment? Cramps in the legs and feet are very common with cirrhosis. You might want to try "Leg Cramps" you can find it at any Walgreens. It seems to work for me. You should ask the hepatologist for Xifaxan. For many people it is more effective in stopping HE flare-ups and has no nasty side-effects like Lactulose.
Avatar n tn Vinegar is also a great disinfectant and good for windows. Ammonia also is a no no with no Windex for me. I could go on and on...please let me know if you have any more questions. I will be happy to help. I hope that your son's RAD gets under better control.
Avatar f tn People cough because our breath smells like ammonia. Causes of ammonia breath odor are h pylori gastritis and chronic renal failure. Please get checked for h pylori, change your diet, do not skip meals!, and try be less anxious when people react to you because then the odor gets stronger. H pylori and halitosis is the cause. H pylori is #1 cause of stomach cancer. I suffer from PATM and I am h pylori positive.
Avatar f tn He won't return to the doctor since being diagnosed over 2 years ago. He drinks 2 ltrs of wine a day. He has a terrible body odor of ammonia and the bathroom has a constant ammonia odor I find terribly offensive. I feel I need to clean it all the time. I think I started this post just to ask if he would excrete ammonia in his urine if his levels were high; it's beginning to appear to me that this is the case. Any idea if this is an early or later sign of the progression of this disease?
Avatar n tn For a few weeks now I've been noticing wafts of what I can only describe as the smell of Ammonia. I cant be sure where the smell is coming from - it's quite obvious if I breath in really deep through my nose a few times. I dont think it;s in my sweat as I run 6k three times a week and my running clothes dont smell all, so I'm assuming the smell is either from my breath, or actually in my sinuses.
Avatar n tn Cindy, 21-50 micromoles per liter (mcmol/L) is the normal range depending upon the lab you use. Higher than norm ammonia levels are usually due to a problem with protein being broken down in the small intestines. It is then process by the liver and eliminated through the kidneys in your urine. So any problems in this part of the digestive system can result in higher than normal ammonia level.
Avatar n tn I am overwright but consider myself athletic. I can smell the ammonia in my nose and on my breath. I've had blood work done and my liver function is normal, ammonia levels normal, blood glucose and a1c is normal. I have been diagnosed with non -alcoholic fatty liver and I have insulin resistance. Anything would be helpful!
Avatar m tn Or are you constipated? Do you have other health issues that could be affecting your ammonia levels? Ammonia is produced when proteins are broken down in the intestines. If the liver is unable to effectively metabolize the ammonia, the levels rise in the blood. Could you be eating too much protein??? What s your typical food during a day? Are you getting your protein from vegetable sources or chicken and fish? You are not eating any red meat, correct?

325086 tn?1217974780 My wife has noticed a strange breath odor, even after I have brushed and used mouthwash. It seems to be coming from deep inside. Has anyone else experienced this and is there a home remedy. When I Goggle it all I get is expensive kits and ads. I'm also wondering if there's a correlation between fibrosis stage and bad breath.

Avatar m tn I'm not sure when this started but every once in awhile I'll get the sinus clearing feeling in my nose and it smells almost like a talc or powder smell mixed with ammonia. I will get it after working out on the treadmill or sometimes just doing simple things around the house. It isn't an everyday thing but a few times a week and it lasts for about 5 minutes or less. It isn't coming off my body but deep in my sinuses. After taking Tylenol I can smell Tylenol in my system.
Avatar n tn It has been my experience that "moth ball" breath is an indicator of tooth decay, even if there is no pain. You might want to visit your dentist.
Avatar f tn I suffer from chronic bad breath and am trying to diagnose the problem. My family has said it smells like mothballs. This is not easy to say but when I go to the bathroom they told me my feces leave a very strong almost chemical smell that isn't normal which makes me think I may have a digestive problem. I did some research and found that Halitosis can be caused by metabolic conditions in the gastrointestinal tract. Is there a test I can take to see if this is the source of my problem?
Avatar n tn The most common ammonia-related disease is with chronic kidney disease leading it an ammonia-like breath smell. Sometimes urine that sits for awhile can smell like ammonia - thus any possible fistula (i.e. abnormal connection) between the bowels and urinary system can possibly lead to stools smelling like ammonia. Another consideration may be fetor hepaticus - a distinctive, sweel breath smell that is associated with severe liver disease.
Avatar n tn I can breathe deep if I need to when I feel this way. I'm curious, I had a short exposure to a large amount of ammonia from my work plant 3 years ago. It was outside & they blew out the ammonia that was in the plant out into the air to disperse in the outside air. I've been told by their experts that it is safe.
Avatar n tn does elevated ammonia levels cause bad breath? Just a few months ago this started to happen. Now his breath is never good, even after he brushes.
Avatar f tn I have been getting a bad taste in my mouth every so often as well as bad breath. I am 48 yrs old. I get alot of pain in my left side and lower back as well as burning. I did some research and I am thinking of going to my doctor to see if he could run some test to see if I have kidney or liver problems. I also get a lot of pains and tightness in my hands and fingers as well as a lot of headaches. I have high blood pressure and is on Micardis Plus.
Avatar n tn She is on a low protein diet because she has high ammonia levels. She has had many tune ups for pulmonary issues in the last year, but has not needed one in the last eight weeks. Her latest lung x-ray is great, her PFT's are wonderful, we have done exercise pft tests, IV bubble study echo, and arterial blood draws. hepatopulmonary syndrome and pulmonary hypertension has been ruled out. She has no or very little acites. The PFTS, and echo is great.

Avatar n tn This mold responds well to an application of ammonia. Don't use bleach. And NEVER EVER AMMONIA AND BLEACH TOGETHER! The resultant gas is POISONOUS! As in causing death. With the kids and pets out of the house, make it a point to have a spray bottle of ammonia handy. Open the windows. Walk into the room, take a deep breath (hold it). Spray an area three foot by three foot thoroughly. Run from the room and leave the house and do your errands. Visit your girlfriends.
Avatar n tn In the case of a school, professional help is advised, but in a bathroom use a spray bottle with 100% ammonia, go in, hold your breath and spray a three foot by three foot area. You should practice this. The idea is NOT to inhale any of the fumes. NEVER EVER USE AMMONIA AND BLEACH! NEVER! Mixed together they form a poisonous gas. Then leave the house to take care of errands. In an hour or two come back and do another three foot by three foot portion, and again leave the house.
