I was never thought to have ADHD but it feels like I do now.
I am wondering if I exposed myself to inhaling ammonia/clorox while cleaning and these symptoms are the longterm effects, two or three years later.
It has been suggested that I have neuropsych. testing done to pinpoint the memory and cognitive deficits but I am afraid of what I will find out.
This includes very limited protein consumption (a sick liver has problems breaking down and clearing the by-products of protein and this results in possible higher ammonia levels), higher fiber diet and lots of fruits and vegetables. Do not eat fried food as high fat content irritates the situation with a sick liver. Also, I was told by my GI doctor to take fiber in a glass of whatever is tasty. This also helps with constipation issues and keeps the colon cleaner.
I hope this helps.
I colored my hair 1x during 13 week treatment, Not sure if it would have been better or worse. It was falling out plenty before, not much more after. Are their studies to show hair falls out more if colored? Or is it an assumption? I didn't do highlights, just covered my gray with brown.
Today I just feel that constantly my throat is constriced and my sternum hurts along with the area around my sternum.
My questions are is this a normal reaction to mold exposure? Should I seek professional help? Since my work is not likely to fix the mold problem till next week what should I do to keep myself safe and help myself get better? I'm also worried about my residents who also have history of respiratory problems. What should I do for them?
When I smell fumes such as chemicals (especially acetone or ammonia) or smoke from cigarettes, the discomfort mainly occurs on the uvula or the tonsils. When I inhale dust, tickling occurs on the throat.
This discomfort has also caused me to stop eating tomatoe sauce, spicies and pepper because I feel it worsens if I eat them. However, last Sunday I ate salted popcorn and I've had a tickle in my throat as well, it's driving me crazy. I cannot sleep at night as well !

Usually I do not get fever with these discomforts.

Effects of Food on Oral Absorption
The systemic exposure (AUC) to telaprevir was increased by 237% when telaprevir was administered with a standard fat meal (containing 533 kcal and 21 g
fat) compared to when telaprevir was administered under fasting conditions. In addition, the type of meal significantly affects exposure to telaprevir.
Relative to fasting, when telaprevir was administered with a low-fat meal (249 kcal, 3.
The journal Environmental Health Perspectives found phthalates in our food.
Phthalate exposure, even in small amounts, has been linked to behavioral problems in children, allergies and asthma, eczema, and unhealthy changes in our hormonal systems.
L-cysteine, a non-essential amino acid made from dissolved human hair (often from China) or duck feathers.
It's used in commercial dough conditioner to improve the texture of breads and baked goods.
Ammonia can be harmful but cover your face and wear gloves. The real risk is contracting toxoplasmosis. Which is food borne but also can be caused by exposure to feces. I have a cat, and scoop the box every couple days. Its not a big deal.
FAST FOOD MEATS
Those who eat fast-food burgers and cheap hamburger can unwittingly be consuming ammonia along with their “food”, due to the filler known as “pink slime.” “Pink slime” (called “lean finely textured beef” by the meat industry) is a processed beef product that was originally used in pet food and later approved for human consumption. In March 2012, ABC News claimed that 70 % of ground beef sold in U.S. supermarkets contained this additive.
Lactulose is also used to reduce the amount of ammonia in the blood of patients with liver disease. It works by drawing ammonia from the blood into the colon where it is removed from the body.
This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
That would be entirely irresponsible of your doctor to not tell you if you have HE.
Did you not ask why your were taking lactulose?

Signs and symptoms of exposure
1. Acute exposure: Acute exposure to chlorine dioxide results in
irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat; cough; wheezing; shortness of breath; bronchitis; pulmonary edema; headache; and vomiting [Genium
Chronic exposure: Chronic exposure to chlorine dioxide may cause chronic bronchitis and emphysema [Sittig 1991].
EMERGENCY MEDICAL PROCEDURES
* Emergency medical procedures: [NIOSH to supply]
benzene, 1 1 1-Trichloroethane, M.T.B.E, chlorine, etc.) and metals (lead, arsenic, mercury, cadnium, etc.) other toxic compounds include, Nitrous oxide, glue, ammonia, etc..)
4) Inflammation in the lower back which reduces blood flow to the nerves in the spinal column.
5) Sciatic nerve entrapment (piriformis entrapment) caused from standing on concrete too much, sitting too long in one position putting pressure on the sciatic nerve or its blood supply, and aging, where muscles lose tone.
just check that the antiviral is entecavir (baraclude) but no previous exposure to lam, if there was exposure to lam it is best to add on tenofovir when stable (no switch), a resistance to antiviral at cirrhosis stage can be deadly
"PATM is caused by eating sugar, dairy and carbs--bread, wheat, beans"
I found some similar cases on other medical forums. am579
Girl said that she had bad odor and people cough and sneeze around her.
Her doctors said that she had giardiasis, erosive bulb.
Man said that people cough and sneeze around him and these reactions increase if he sweats.
It's a messy process cleaning it
though and incidently Apple seeds contain strychnine so anyone who juices apples be sure to de-seed them first. My Hepatologist put me on a food supplement called
Hepatic-Aid. It is a prescribed food and has all the anti- Oxidants a person in Liver disease needs-according to him except B-12 for which I get an injection every month.
I also take Lactulose twice a day which rids my body of toxic stuff, especially ammonia.
WAXAHACHIE, Texas — Massive plumes of black smoke billowed from a raging fire at a chemical plant south of Dallas on Monday, prompting evacuations for some schools and residents and sending others to take shelter inside with doors and windows shut to avoid possible exposure to any dangerous gases.
which it didn't and then posted an advertisement for Japan's largest manufacturer and marketer of processed food (including MSG which they say is good for you), seasonings, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals and animal nutrition (animal feed). I don't think they need the exposure.
I think this forum has enough ads as it is without people posting their favorite company products that have nothing to do with hepatitis C.
It can also cause skin, eye and throat irritation. At higher exposure levels, fiberglass also has been associated with skin rashes and difficulty in breathing. Was the lung function tests normal?
Fiberglass emits a synthetic material called styrene, which is a possible carcinogenic. Styrene and its breakdown products can be measured in your blood, urine, and body tissues. Styrene leaves your body quickly. If you are tested within one day, the actual amount of exposure can be estimated.
They may travel great distances from the point of origin, accumulate in people and animals in the food chain and have long-term toxic effects.5
Exposure to these chemicals at a critical point in development may damage your reproductive system, and cause deficits in learning,6 memory, motor skills and behavior. Some have also been identified as carcinogenic.7
• Phthalates are another chemical hazard.
I've been unable to find and documentation linking cirrhosis with exposure to either ciproflaxin or to ammonia in the environment (doesn't mean its not possible, just not well documented). You probably know if it is alcohol, but the viruses require blood tests to confirm. If you have either if these viruses it is really critical information, and it makes little sense to worry about anything else until you know whether or not you've been infected.
I was told no diet restrictions in that regard if you dont have excess ammonia in your blood and it hasnt been a problem. I still a not going to be drowning my food with soy sauce or topping it off with a ouple of shakes of garlic salt! I ws suprised there was ammonia in foods at all! Do you have any good sites you have used that detail foods that are ok (or not?
Then I became obsessed with the smell in my nose and once I saw an article about Ammonia smell and kidneys I started obsessing about kidney problems. The FACT is I had blood work 3 years ago and my kidneys were great. I have no kidney problems in my family history. No diabetes or family problems with it. My blood pressure has been low for the last 7 years because of the medicine I'm taking for the fluke heart virus I had..including the ace inhibitors used to help people with diabetes.
PS My understanding is that in pediatric settings vs end-of-life settings, ammonia management has become a critical component in managing pediatric liver disease; prolonged exposure has been associated with permanent brain damage, so does play in further into metabolic rather than viral causes...
Doctors should have a high suspicion for this organism when patients present with gastrointestinal illness, fever, or shock following the ingestion of raw seafood, especially oysters, or with a wound infection after exposure to seawater.
