Ammonia gas in water

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia gas in water


Avatar m tn Stay away from red meat, high protein and do not drink large amounts of water. Need juices as a sub for water. If your on meds, stay away from Bezodiazipan (valium, Klonipin etc. and narcotic pain meds). Reccomended to try acupuncture and massage for stress and pain.
30678 tn?1217992847 The acidification of the contents of the gut causes a reduction in the absorption of a chemical called ammonia. The presence of ammonia in the gut causes water to be drawn into the lower bowel, which causes an increase in the water content and volume of the stools, therefore relieving constipation. Lactulose is also used in higher doses to help reduce a complication associated with liver disease called hepatic encephalopathy.
1184842 tn?1264268787 This is the method I used because my ammonia was not terribly high, and because I know the sucralose adds a chlorine molecule in its breakdown process, which is not good. Since my ammonia was around 120 I decided to go the natural route only...smaller protein portions, and more fiber, and it worked for me...down to 22 now. However, if levels were very high then I think the lactulose would be the only prevents the absorption in the first place.
Avatar m tn Also if your liver enyzmes are not normal, or even if they are and you are stage 3 or 4, you should ask to have your ammonia levels checked as this is a common factor in those complaining of confusion.
Avatar f tn The difference between a liquid and gas is that each liquid molecule is energized that it gets airborne as a gas molecule. For instance, we boil liquid water and the H20 molecules starts floating randomly in the air at 100 degrees Celsius but it’s basically the same compound as it was in liquid form or solid(ice). Everything that comes out of your sweat, urination, breath was in the blood? You understand that right? I hope we agree on that so the rest can make sense.
Avatar m tn It's hard on the lungs, is linked to cancer and is proably unhealthy in drinking water, bath water and in hot tubs. Essentially, it's a poison that we put in out drinking water and wash water to kill and retard bacteria growth. Your practice doesn't sound safe to me. The long term effects may outshine any perceived short term benefits. Not to change the topic.....
Avatar m tn - I accidentally came near the trash truck, dead animals but I never coughed so the odor should not be the reason for coughing - When I feel the gas moving in my stomach to the rectum, I heard ppl cough even it din't come out yet I still couldn't understand the reason behind ppl coughing while I couldn't detect anything.
Avatar n tn I'm a 52 year old woman in excellent health except for this problem that began Aug. 2004 after vacation in Mexico. It started with an ache in my left side below rib cage & change in bowel movements. I am frequently constipated, crampy in lower abdomen, sore in upper abdomen & every bm has a lot of mucus. In the last 3 months, the condition worsened & now I have excessive gas, bloating & 3-6 bm's per day, usually within 15-30 minutes after eating.
192055 tn?1263559137 The bleeding is like a pinhole in a water pipe. It's not red blood. It's liquid that leaks for a long period of time and accumulates in the throat because it's the natural way to flow. In the evening before I go to bed, I take a drop of cooking oil and dab it inside the nostrils. One drop each. That coats them and keeps any leak, stopping them. Plus, it loosens the mucus in a dry nose and clears the way. 2.
Avatar n tn I have just recently had the same problem and hope someone can tell me where it is stemming from? Everytime I breathe in through my nose lately everything smells like "ammonia"!!!!! I haven't been using any cleaning chemicals, I am a smoker but have never experienced this before!!!! Help!!!!!!!!
1134500 tn?1260879457 after reaserch on my machine i was exposed to ammonia gas given off from sodium nitrate in the water,the ph level was 12 when i found out after ph of 7 ammonia gas is given off,i was not protected by any ppe.the question was can this chemical cause my cluster headaches,as i know ammonia can trigger them off but dont know about causing them...thanks glen.
Avatar n tn Pot which you can purchase at your local drugstore. It is a little pot you fill with luke warm water and mix in a saline packet then tilt your head to the side, insert in one nostril and it will eventually flow out the other nostril, cleaning your sinusus...I renamed it the snoti pot :) I was hesitant at first but actully works great and feels good...almost gives you the sensation you've been swimming all day if you know what I mean.
Avatar n tn My left foot, mainly toe area. feels warm like it's being dipped in water. or being pee'd on. I asked my doctor and she had no idea what it was, "mystery" was the word she used. then she asked another doctor and he said that I should have blood drawn. so my results came back and my thyroid is abit low. related? I dunno, I went back for more blood work but i'm still waiting on results. warm sensation, no pain. yet it's scary as hell.
Avatar n tn 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. Get some chocolate chip cookies! Two hours later the fumes will be all gone.
4043517 tn?1374010173 First get my bowels working and my ammonia down. I'm out for a few weeks right before Xmas, that figures.
Avatar n tn (You see this coming, don't you?) I think our well water has a fair amount of bacteria in it. Anyway, I got myself a bacterial infection a couple of times, wasn't until this last episode that the light came on in my head. I was told that this was a deep well, and I thought it was safe, but got to thinking about it, and stopped using tap water, and got purified water to use, and that helped. Anyway, got that part figured out, what a relief to at least give my system some kind of a chance.
Avatar f tn There are some bacteria in the gut that produce hydrogen sulfide gas. Sometimes this gas is produced in such huge quantities that the sulfide oxidase enzyme in the wall of the gut is not able to oxidize all of it and convert it to thiosulfate. Hence the gas enters the blood stream and gets filtered by kidney into the urine. This gas has a smell of rotten eggs. You can test its presence by test strips available OTC.
797873 tn?1265740119 Mine is little different because where ever I am at this smell stays in, my room , at work and in my car.. and the smell changes all the time it depends what I eat. I also get thursty If I dont drink water. I start to get a dry throat and mouth... If i drink anything else that is not water my breath gets worse.. please help!
208764 tn?1249433257 Chlorine dioxide is also superior to chlorine when operating above pH7, in the presence of ammonia and amines and/or for the control of biofilms in water distribution systems. Chlorine dioxide is used in many industrial water treatment applications as a biocide including cooling towers, process water and food processing. Chlorine dioxide is less corrosive than chlorine and superior for the control of legionella bacteria.
315996 tn?1429057829 You titer it down to the extent that the gas production ( hydrogen and carbondioxide)/bowel frequency is tolerable. In stages of life threatening intoxication of the brain from intestinal toxic products that the damaged liver cannot handle anymore - ammonia AND other products - enemas with up to 200ml of lactulose are given and are life saving. Lactulose is not absorbed into the bloodstream at all.
29837 tn?1414538248 got on lactulose and it dropped to 120 in 2wks. it is in powder form to mix with water and does not taste bad at all. my dr took me off of it but said if i am confused again to start it up. encephalopathy is a new twist in my issues. i am basically stage 4 decompensating and have had 2 bandings in last 3 yrs.
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 Hes soiledsystem, if you indeed had high ammonia in your blood, it could sort of add up to my urea theory, in a sense that by some bacteria and fungi urea gets converted to ammonia and carbomate, by an enzyme called Urease. And most people should not have high Ammonia, as it should be converted back to Urea by an enzyme called "carbamoyl phosphate synthase" to be excreted. But what if a pathogenic organism that is causing our symptoms is also feeding on ammonia?
Avatar f tn I strongly encourage you to repost your question in the Hepatitis C Community as it is unlikely to get a decent response in this forum. ___________________ ______________________________________ Are you certain you have Hepatitis C? What stage of fibrosis are you and what is your genotype? What you describe might or very well might not be a side effect of Lactulose: What are the Side Effects of Lactulose?
Avatar m tn As a result, many chemical substances such as toluene and xylene were detected from the subject's skin gas compared to the control subjects. In addition, hexane, propionaldehyde, toluene, etc., which showed relatively high emissions from the subject's skin, were also detected from underwear after wearing. Most of the microorganisms isolated from the nasal cavity of the subject were Staphylococcus epidermidis, which is known as the resident bacterium of the skin.
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 From my observations, I believe the cause is overheating in our body. We tend to get nervous or heat in our body which produces and exhadles some gas from our body which is allergic to humans. This gas attracts mosquitos and I'm sure most of you have seen that mosquitos like to be near you when you're outdoors. I believe keeping your posture straight is very important as it keeps your stomach and disgestive system in good posture. If you slouch when you sit, please stop right away.
4043517 tn?1374010173 Today after progress I lost my balance, grabbed the rail on the front porch to steady myself but kept falling. Went backwards, hit my head on a brick, broke at least one toe, soaked in Epsom salts, bloody and foot swollen, butt and side throbbing, goose egg on my elbow. 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.
4043517 tn?1374010173 I picture something like the mucinex commercial where the virus are all sitting around playing cards and smoking cigars in their foul smelling cavernous home when suddenly, tonight a vaguely noxious canister of death was released into their den. I see them stopping, feeling something isn't quite right as they stare at each other. Well, you little bastards,something isn't quite right for you any longer. I am stopping your breeding program as of tonight and soon you are going to be on the run.
