Ammonia in humans

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia in humans


Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Excess ammonia is formed in the blood due to liver or kidney damage. This is always associated with poor outcome if left untreated. Hope this helps. Take care!
1391695 tn?1298143389 It would appear your liver can convert the small small small amount that might be able to get into your eyes easily enough. Ammonia also plays a role in both normal and abnormal animal physiology. Ammonia is biosynthesised through normal amino acid metabolism and is toxic in high concentrations.[51] The liver converts ammonia to urea through a series of reactions known as the urea cycle.
Avatar f tn High concentrations are really dangerous, but low concentrations could be tolerated by other humans. You can have a blood test to check the levels of ammonia in your blood, but I’ve not got round to investigating it yet. I’m convinced it’s a gas or a toxin linked to one of our bio-chemical body reactions. One day it will all make sense.
Avatar n tn I know this is an old post, but I was searching on this topic myself. I'm not selling anything, I just think we all need to be told these normal things doctors have stopped telling us in this pill-popping era.
Avatar m tn Apparently alot of these studies done with parasites that infect humans were done in Egypt. It's really very interesting, there are more parasite infections in other parts of the world and places that have a high population of both HepC and parasites are perfect for those types of studies. China and Egypt both come to mind. I really don't know anything about neuropathy and HepC together. Actually I thought that treatment was sometimes responsible for neuropathy.
5611452 tn?1370974704 Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE) is caused by the build up of toxins in the system due to the liver not performing all of it's functions properly. As the toxins build up, ammonia builds up in the brain, causing certain cognitive problems, such as fatigue, sleepiness, confusion, memory problems, difficulty communicating, organizational problems, etc. These two symptoms (ascites and HE) cause me to feel that your liver may be beginning to "decompensate" (not work well).
192055 tn?1263559137 When I started to have the problem, I went to the doc and he said it just may be sinuses and sent me on my way... but never went away. I went to the doc while I was in Basic Training in SC... then went to GA for 4 months... back to FL for a few months (where i use to live) and now I am in NC.... never went away so I don't think it has anything to do with sinuses...?
Avatar f tn I've just been given an article from newspaper stating that probiotic yoghurts are good for treating liver failure in humans so we'll try him on some of that tomorrow as he likes yoghurt (and as long as it doesn't make him worse, may even help to alleviate some of his tummy problems).Vet recommended Marmite for B vitamins which is quite salty, but he's flatly refused that, even mixed with food/spread on toast or smeared on gums.I can't stand it either, so would probably do the same!
Avatar m tn Im so confused because the doctor said this is all so very serious, however, he seems to be in very high spirits and has been in a great mood for the last two days. His normal personality has come back and he's acting completely like himself again. He has even started to eat again, bread and peanut butter with the denamarin and he ate an egg yolk today. He has never been sick before and I am worrying sick about him.
1446046 tn?1284516737 I haven't run across this particular problem myself, I can tell you a few ideas that are associated with us humans. sweet smelly breath....diabetes(is kitty drinking alot?) ammonia....renal sinus infection cavities or gum infection. it would be a real good idea to have your Vet check for all these problems.
144586 tn?1284669764 This is something to be checked on. Many aides are extremely careless regarding both bleach and ammonia. If bleach is mixed with ammonia a deadly gas develops. Many aides have problems with english and do not understand this. Aides and cleaning ladies should not be permitted to use either of these fluids without supervision in the room of an elderly debilitated immobile patient.
Avatar f tn By breaking down existing protein, the carbon skeleton of the various amino acids can be metabolized to intermediates in cellular respiration; the remaining ammonia is discarded primarily as urea in urine. This occurs normally only during prolonged starvation. source, www.healthgenie.
144210 tn?1273092382 Much of this ammonia comes from intestinal bacteria, but the right bacteria will not produce it. While there was no clinical trial in humans yet for that purpose, resveratrol might hold the highest potential to hold fibrosis and dampen the effects of fatty liver. Try to find the famous article about one year ago in the journal nature, performed by Harvard scientists together with NIH, where they treated mice with a Mc Donalds type diet, with and without Resveratrol, with stunning results.
Avatar n tn I have only seen Candida Albicans yeast once in 16 years of practice and that was in a dog's ear. If you have ever had a urinary tract infection you know how annoying and painful they can be. Please have a urinalysis performed on a fresh urine sample from your dog, and give her the appropriate antibiotic's prescribed by your vet.
Avatar n tn Under normal circumstances, ammonia is efficiently detoxified in the liver so that relatively little escapes into the general circulation bathing the brain. However, with advanced liver disease, whether acute or chronic, the detoxification of ammonia and other toxins by the liver fails, and they accumulate in the blood and disturb brain function.
208764 tn?1249433257 Chlorine dioxide is a severe respiratory and eye irritant in humans. Inhalation can produce coughing, wheezing, respiratory distress, and congestion in the lungs [Patnaik 1992]. Irritating effects in humans was intense at concentration levels of 5 ppm. Accidental exposure at 19 ppm of the gas inside a bleach tank resulted in the death of one worker (time of exposure is not specified) [ACGIH 1991]. Workers exposed for 5 years to average chlorine dioxide concentrations below 0.
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.
1232362 tn?1333139006 I took my kittens at 4 mo and had them spayed at the ABC center (Animal Birth Control) and we took them in inthe morning and picked them up in the afternoon. And if she does turn up pregnant they can still spay her. It doesn't sound like your friend needs a bunch of unwanted kittens to deal with.
1475202 tn?1536274577 He is a chronic GI bleeder, and has been in the hospital 8 times in 7 months because of hepatic encephalopathy. They always admit him, give him fluids and a blood transfusion if he needs it. They also give him lactulose and after a good sleep, he usually awakens without confusion and disorientation. I have been told to regulate the lactulose myself, deciding to raise or lower the dosage depending on the number and consistency of his BM's.
Avatar f tn Cats tend to jump in the crib when the baby arrives and sometimes smother the child. They smell milk on the baby's breath And try to put their face in the baby's mouth. I would not advise having a cat around a baby.... Plus you should not be changing any litter or even smelling it due to the ammonia. Not good for unborn baby...
Avatar m tn On the other hand, overseas is called PATM (People Allergic to Me) about the constitution that causes allergic reaction such as sneezing, runny nose, coughing, eye itching and congestion to other people around himself by chemical substances radiating from the skin himself , In general it is known little by little. However, in Japan it is almost unrecognized and there are no reports in journals of academic journals.
Avatar f tn can be related to the continued off-gassing of VOCs after the paint “dries.” Second, according to studies in animals and in humans (occupational settings with significant exposures), the potential health effects of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) include immune effects (e.g., asthma and allergy), cellular effects (e.g., cancer, leukemia), cardiovascular effects, neurologic and sensory effects, and some respiratory effects other than immunologic effects.
Avatar m tn Products containing chlorine bleach usually contain trace amounts of organochlorines that cause cancer in animals and are expected to do so in humans. Small amounts of organochlorines are also formed whenever chlorine bleach is used. Household bleach is the most common cleaner accidentally swallowed by children.
Avatar f tn Cat litter &/or cat waste does not have pneumonia in it. It is "AMMONIA" which has absolutely nothing to do with pneumonia. And no, you cannot "catch" pneumonia from cat boxes.
Avatar m tn "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.
Avatar n tn She wants to know if breathing amonia fumes from the urine of a house cat can cause her problem to increase. Thank you in advance.
1523516 tn?1330047857 Appeal to their Inner Wisdom. Help them realize that that they are still human, being of service to other humans in need, and not gears of an uncaring and dysfunctional mechanism whose purpose is only profit,power and greed! Please post again with more details about events that preceded the onset of your symptoms, any significant traumas perhaps or very stressful situations and are there any traits of yourself difficult to explain?
Avatar m tn virus, but it is a virus that directly infects, and probably directly impacts multiple organs and systems in humans. We now have proof that the brain is actually infected in many people, and I will guess that sometime soon they will also demonstrate the virus acting on connective tissues (joint problems), salivary tissues and glands (all the eye and dental issues, as well as SS complaints), skin, lungs, kidneys...etc. How about the cardio-vascular system...
186606 tn?1263513790 The Newcastle team showed that sulfasalazine could aid recovery by blocking the production of proteins that keep the scar tissue cells alive. They plan to carry out trials in humans, but already believe the drug has the potential to provide an alternative to a liver transplant. The drug will initially be given to heavy drinkers who have given up alcohol, but too late for their liver to recover naturally.
Avatar f tn Dj_Choppa, by any chance have you also experience smell sensitivity? 'Cause I feel like ever since Patm I can't stand the smells of perfume or food they are just suddenly so overwhelming.
