Ammonia exposure in fish

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia exposure in fish


Avatar m tn I have had scans and tests and more tests but I just cant get any real help. After my initial exposure I had green ooze in my left foot between my toes and in my face under my hair follicles in my chin on the right side and in my right ear. Just when I got all the swelling and green stuff out of my body I fell 30ftplus from a tree and suffered a traumatic brain injury but to this day with my ongoing problems still in 2017 I think it is less brain injury and more chemical exposure.
Avatar m tn My doctor thinks I'm crazy... Says if I had enough ammonia in my blood to smell it in my nose, I'd have serious mental issues. I always thought ammonia was a later stage cirrhosis issue and not an early warning. I didn't have this problem when I was drinking more. It has only developed during (slow) withdrawal. I know lots of fats come out of your liver during alcohol detox and I'm hoping this is just a artifact.
Avatar f tn Gmiller, i was on antibiotics nonstop by mouth and it did nothing but evenly cause me to break out in hives from over exposure and diarhhea. It was the nasal nebulizer that directly distributed an antibiotic, saline and a sinus expander directly into my sinuses that madr all that stuff finally stop for me. My insurance covered it and i only paid a $20 copay for the machine and then a $20 copay for the meds.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn You touched on a very emotional issue in all hepatitis forums, so keep that in mind when you read through the responses. My hepatologist (liver specialist) allowed light, social drinking both prior to treatment and after treatment but not during treatment. I asked another prominent hepatologist regarding post treatment social drinking and he also said it was OK. I started treatment as a stage 3. Some doctors, however, permit no drinking.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn I grew up on the west coast and NEVER had this problem with fish in the Pacific Ocean. Since moving to Florida it's EVERY time I touch fish. My whole hand peels. One to two weeks after contact. It is very frustrating!!!
Avatar m tn It can even form a toxic gas when hyper-chlorinated by hot water. In the environment, sodium hypochlorite is acutely toxic to fish. The chlorine in bleach can also bind with organic material in the marine environment to form organochlorines, toxic compounds that can persist in the environment. Products containing chlorine bleach usually contain trace amounts of organochlorines that cause cancer in animals and are expected to do so in humans.
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.
3060903 tn?1398568723 16 Microfibers, which are more prevalent than microbeads (found in face scrubs and similar items), are particularly dangerous as the fibers are easily consumed by fish and other wildlife, accumulating in the gut and concentrating in the bodies of other animals higher up the food chain. Textile fibers are found in both marine and freshwater fish.

Avatar f tn a healthy lifestyle low in oxidative stressors such as alcohol, cigarettes and drugs, a diet low in iron, calories, saturated fats and toxic chemical additives and high in antioxidants and easily assimilable protein, and a genetic predisposition to avoid accumulation of iron and copper, and to produce higher than normal levels of endogenous antioxidants (e.g. GSH, GR, ALA, CoQ10), as well as a genetic tendency against high levels of autoimmune and inflammatory activity.
Avatar f tn Basically, the parts of the body that get the most exposure to water throughout the day (face and hair in the shower, hands that get frequently washed, and feet that soak in water during daily showers) are found to be the most problematic for people with this disorder.... As for solutions, just keep lathering on re lotions and oils, especially after any exposure to water (if this disorder sounds like something you might have).
233616 tn?1312790796 I was actually told by my new GI dr (who personally knows my transplant team liver specialist) about the danger of this bacteria being present in the ocean and the fish in it. I currently am a member of a FB group for pre, post, and caregivers. I asked them about this, too. This isn't common knowledge, and since I only first heard of it, I am trying to do my homework. Have a nice evening folks!
315996 tn?1429057829 if you are going to do resistance training and want to maintain or build muscle, one *might* lean more towards the BCAAs (or food like lentils that has more) than lean towards protein powders and sources of protein that cause the liver to create ammonia. I mean well, lodged in here amongst the knee jerks.

Avatar m tn The technique has not been tested on chronic fungus infections, although I had great success against one. It certainly does work in the early stage of exposure to a mold or fungus, for the same reason that it works against bacterial infection—if you flush out the toxin, you may flush out the problem in your sinuses. If you have one of the other forms of sinusitis, your doctor can take an x-ray of your head, and the infection may show up as an opaque area on the x-ray.
Avatar n tn He is 46 yrs. old. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital after throwing up blood and having tingling in his arms. I think his liver was shutting down, when the lifesquad took him out of our home, he was gray. He is better with the tips and doc says his recovery is off the charts. However, lots of drawbacks and complications. He has lost 50 lbs, lost hair in the back of his head- bald patches, seems very malnourished- dry dry skin etc.
1896835 tn?1321576203 s manifestations ,so hopfully he will see your post and chime in. In the meantime let me say I am sorry to hear of your brothers diagnosis. From what you explain he is very sick and his liver is failing His platelet level being so low (trouble with his speen) ,the jaundice (yellowing of the eyes and skin) and the swollen stomach (ascites ) is due to fluid build up.
Avatar n tn Hi, In an olfactory hallucination (phantosmia), you detect smells that are not really present in your environment. The smells detected in phantosmia vary from person to person. Phantosmia and olfactory delusions may also occur in people with Alzheimer's disease. Although rare, phantosmia can occur as a symptom prior to a migraine. There is also some evidence to suggest that phantosmia can arise due to a disorder of the smell receptor system rather than the central nervous system.
Avatar f tn air and couldn't go back in. It was January, I was in my nightgown, standing in snow trying not to hurl. I ended up sitting in the car for about an hour until she aired her house out. And even then I could still smell it. I got dressed quickly and left. I never stayed at their house again after that when we visited. It was that powerful. I think there might be some sort of genetic link, my 4 year old daughter is the same way. She smells EVERYTHING. poor kid.
Avatar n tn I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I take baths in ammonia, borax and Dr. Bronners peppermint soap in my bath water. This has helped the most. I either steam iron or boil my clothes, towels and sheets. I drink a glass of red wine every night before going to bed. Theses are the things that have helped me get them down to almost nothing. I hope this helps. I've just opened a facebook page just for discussion on these bugs, life, support, etc. My name there is bugedout thugbugs.
Avatar n tn They also follow me to work,and I have them in my office too. Then when I go to another person's office, they follow me in there too. So essentially it's me they are after. There is no food or fruit anywhere,and I do not wear cologne. I have not done anything different from when they were not constantly around me. I am not sure why they are around me, but as you can see, it has become a problem. Does anyone have any ideas?
173975 tn?1216261375 Just jumpin in there to explain encephalopthy. In this case it means liver damage making the ammonia levels rise to the point that your brain and body is toxic. You can't think straight. Another term is hepatic encephalothy meaning brain dysfunction caused by liver damage. Correct me if I'm wrong B.
496771 tn?1209698358 They are sore to the touch and honestly kind of lumpy! -- am I in any danger? Will this just go away? Should I be worried? It's been about 48 hours since I dyed my hair. Thanks!
Avatar n tn He was not by any means active but it was a 100% increase from the day prior. Still very gray and the ammonia smell in the house when i got home from work was very strong. I am starting to understand now that this really is a roller coaster ride. I know how i feel I cannot imagine how he does.
604197 tn?1292308636 Hello, I'm 17 years of age and recently (2 months ago) had an accident that has resulted in the loss of my sense of smell and taste. I was at a lake, swinging on a rope into the water but lost my grip and wnet head first down a cliff of rocks and roots. I landed in the water but had hit the back of my head (near the crown, at the top) splitting my head open and fracturing my skull (3-4 inches).
233616 tn?1312790796 As long as one kept the dose low, monitored the liver, and watched for lactic acidosis, what would be the harm in trying? arguments in favor or opposed please weigh in, if obese women went from 20% to 60% SVR that should tell us something??
181575 tn?1250202386 Standard serologic markers used in the diagnosis of HBV infection include HBsAg, hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs), and hepatitis B core antibody (anti-HBc). HBsAg becomes detectable in serum generally within 4 to 10 weeks of exposure to HBV and is generally present in serum before there is significant elevation in serum aminotransferases. If the acute infection is cleared, HBsAg will disappear within 4 to 6 months and anti-HBs will become detectable in serum several weeks later.
