Nadolol is taken a a prophylaxis.
Avatar m tn The neurologist found my carnitine levels are low and my ammonia is high. My great grandmother passed away from muscular dystrophy (not sure if it's important). If you are deficient in carnitine does that mean you have the metabolic muscular disease? Could the low carnitine levels explain the mild pulmonary hypertension which in turns explains the decreased diffusion capacity? Could it explain all the symptoms?
Avatar f tn My ammonia levels were off the chart, but no coma. In my experience the treating of the ammonia level (Xifaxin and Lactulose) took me 4 -5 days to completely that alternate universe. Today, I regularly sleep 12 to 18 hours; and with night time insomnia. If I start feeling "funky" in my thoughts, I rest or sleep. But like Hector suggested, try the cirrhosis community. I think it's great to be concerned with your ex-husband's health. At one time he was your key to everything.
Avatar n tn Your bodies pH level could be off, alkaline and acidic levels. The pH of your body fluids has to be regulated in the range 7.35 to 7.45, deviations outside this range affects normal functioning cells and body systems. With a strong ammonia odor, this could be corrected by eating more red meats, foods high in protein. You may not be drinking enough water. Then again, it could be the onsight of a urinary, bladder, or kidney infection. Consult your physician on your individual case.
Avatar n tn what are the amonia levels? a new tank is bound to have high ammonia levels and not much nitrite or nitrate yet. Keep feedings light-once daily and only 1 or 2 flakes or pellets per fish.
Avatar n tn Elevated ammonia can cause a toxic build up in his brain. Symptoms include Hepatic encephalopathy is a major neuropsychiatric complication of chronic liver disease that occurs when large amounts of ammonia accumulate within brain tissues. Ammonia is normally produced by the breakdown of protein in the bowel, and in healthy individuals it is metabolized by the liver to form urea.
Avatar n tn High ammonia levels are serious. You need to start alkalizing his body...immediately. Go to health food store and buy pH test strips. Wheat grass is a good alkalizer, also buy refrigerated probiotics. Look up the 10 ten detoxing foods. Watch and KNOW every chemical he is putting in his mouth. MSG has 13 different names and all are deadly. Immediately start him on a food cleansing diet.
Avatar m tn I know this sounds gross, but try drinking some apple cider vinager once a day. I had the same problem that u have. What u have is high ph levels and high ammonia levels. I had a nurse tell me about the applecider vinager. Also try wearing painty liners that r deorderant type. Hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn Tons of red algae, some brown hair algae, etc. The nitrates are 220+ ppm, nitrites 0, ammonia 0, ph 8.0, and the tank is at 80 deg. We never overfed or dump chemicals in there w/o testing.
Avatar m tn Impaired liver function, shunting of blood around the liver, and increased muscle wasting all lead to increased serum ammonia levels in cirrhotic patients. Ammonia interferes with brain function at many sites. Ammonia crosses the blood-brain barrier and directly depresses the central nervous system.
Avatar n tn only strep b came out 1x which we always have that bacteria present. what i found out is that it is our body's inability to regulate our ph levels due to hormonal fluctuations, antibiotics, certain foods (i notice an ammonia fishy odor after eating fish only ~odd i know) but there are lots of things that can throw our natural good bacteria off leaving us with off ph. this leads to all bad bacterias to cause infection or irritation such as we experiance.
Avatar f tn I also have been so unfortunate to have recurring bacterial vaginosis, so this has lead to a higher Ph levels and i feel like this could be throwing my ovulation off as well. if anyone has any advice please help!
Avatar n tn Ammonia, Nitrate, and Nitrite levels are all 0. Ph and water temperature are fine. I have tried a broad spectrum medicine, parasite tablets, and bacteria medication. Every week I do a 10-15% water change and every 5 weeks I do a 20% water change and vacuum the gravel. So far I have lost 7 tiger barbs and 1 algae eater. Currently in the tank I have 3 mollies and an algae eater. The dead fish have no visible spots or scale discoloration.
Avatar f tn In a large 750ml water-bottle I put one bromelain tablet,1/2t raw natural sea-salt, 1/2t baking soda add filtered water and wait till dissolved. Then I sip throughout the day. I Monitor urine PH levels to be around 7 (average) Do a search for alkalizing and acidifying foods so you can adjust you urinary PH levels to range from 6.75 to 7.35 if possible. Just get some testing strips from the drug store. You will feel better using the above remedies. Take care. Blessings.
Avatar f tn I was told to try an over-the-counter medication that helps balance out the PH levels, but after taking the medications, I still find the same issue. I have an IUD in place and I am being tested for a UTI, so maybe that will finally solve my dilemma. I hope you can all find out what your issues are also.
535822 tn?1443980380 asp) The scam to hook smokers by using ammonia to strengthen the nicotine addiction WORKS, and the 4,000 plus chemicals in commercial cigarettes are no joke, leading the smoker right off the cliff, where they feel like their only way out of feeling awful is to light up. The U.S., Japan, and China alone make up over 75% of the world's smokers. (http://articles.chicagotribune.com) Now, along comes Mucuna, the most essential element of the escape.
1008841 tn?1293602560 Once in the colon, lactulose is metabolized by colonic bacteria and the pH is lowered. As a result, peripheral ammonia levels are reduced. Rifaximin (550 mg 2x per day) is also used with Lactulose and doesn't have the unpleasant side effects of Lactulose. Common precipitants that may trigger an episode of hepatic encephalopathy in patients with otherwise stable liver disease include: Eating red meats. Patients with HE should get their protein from chicken, fish and vegetables.

Avatar n tn Bad Breath (strong like ammonia) frequent urination with the same smell low CO2 levels anion gap at 11 really bad headaches Did I mention bad breath lower back pain blood in my urine (I can't see it but each urinalysis shows it) I think I have chronic renal failure but my BUN and creatinine levels come back low. My doctors think it renal tubular acidosis. I started taking pills to lower my body PH but so far I don't feel better.
Avatar m tn FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST AMMONIA Removal of ammonia begins with the liver, therefore keeping the liver healthy and well functioning will clearly help to improve ammonia removal. Since a major medical indicator of liver failure is high levels of ammonia in the bloodstream, it follows that detoxifying the liver may well be the best way to remove ammonia from the body.
Avatar f tn Recently the biggest one has lost all his colour, isn't eating, and sits at the bottom of the tank seemingly gasping. Everything in the tank is registering as OK..........we have checked ammonia levels, ph etc. everything is reading perfectly. We are doing partial water changes regularly, filter cleaned regularly, we have used an anti fungal in the water just in case that was the cause.....nothing has worked.

1396982 tn?1285326833 If you get your hair dyed I would highly suggest going to a salon and informing them that you are pregnant. Because your PH Balance is all messed up due to hormones it can cause weird effects to hair dye. Like turning it pink or purple for instance.
Avatar n tn I am really confused and couldn't talk to the doc after, so any insight would be very appreciated. By the way all of my labs (blood) came back normal. A CBC and one to check of ammonia levels in my blood. Would those tests show something bad? If it was cancer or something wouldnt the CBC show elevated levels of something in my blood?? Please respond as soon as you can. Thanks!!
Avatar f tn I hear it is common for Lyme to mess with our Ph levels. I add 2-4 Tablespoons of lemon juice to water and drink a little at a time over the course of the day to add acidity back in. Someone else recommended sipping it all day, but my mom warned me that it would eat the enamel off my teeth. On top of my dry mouth from a medication, that is not a good thing. (I just learned I have two small cavities, which is rare for me.) Now I drink more in one sitting and rinse my mouth afterwards.
Avatar n tn I usually do not eat food high in sugar, and will not continue to have alcohol after this last episode, but I am concerned that it may be a symptom of something that has to do with my sugar and insulin levels, and possible a warning of some kind. Have you ever heard of anything like this,?
Avatar f tn It feels like acid discharge is causing the irritation to the mucous membranes. However the PH is in range and all tests are always negative. It began shortly after contact with a new person, but immediately after an extremely upsetting and shocking event which caused severe anxiety and stress.

Avatar n tn I had the same ammonia smell and my Dr. told me it was caused by vaginal PH imbalance. You can treat it with Rephresh gel from any drugstore or Wal-Mart. You can also naturally maintain healthy vaginal ph by eating yogurt containing lactobilli and live cultures a couple times a week. Vaginal ph imbalance is caused by soap, douche, and tampons.
15480 tn?1302533402 However the instructions say that tap water, sweat and a couple of other things can affect it due to pH levels, and I sweat a fair bit these days. So I'm thinking I'll try another one and if it happens again I'll call my doctor.
