Ammonia little death

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia little death


Avatar n tn UID=%7B941B2BBF-610E-4CF8-A58F-169D2D8B2301%7D This site has a table about 1/2 way down that indicates what normal ammonia levels are at various ages. A little bit further down the article explains that ammonia levels do not necessarily correlate with the symptoms of encepalophy. I hope this helps.
1184842 tn?1264268787 the brain damage caused by high ammonia levels not to mention accelerated liver damage are not what you want either right? I think the better part of valor is to tolerate the taste so that you can keep your wits about you...unless dymentia, brain fog and liver failure sound good to you.
Avatar n tn I've started minor bleeds-esophageal-and there are no more options. I cl'd in 2002-transfused 1967, dx after major near death bleed out on 9-12-2001...b/as they say, the damage was done... the next major hurtle was replacing and refacing all the dental work and going after deep festering infections--it seems that every knock, bruise, break or twist healed badly b/c of the un dx hep c... I think healthy living choices and facing the right and place to die choices are sometime in order....
Avatar n tn She has been in and out of the hospital for about 2weeks now. On average she goes to the E.R. atleast once or twice a month because her ammonia level gets too high.Last week she went into the E.R. and when I got there her level was so high she didn't even know who I was, she was shakeing real bad and kept repeating the same thing over and over. It was like one minute she was aware of things, and the next she was ''out of it''.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately it's a really difficult queston to answer - it varies Generally, when a person stops taking food and fluids, is bedridden, is unable to effectively clear respiratory secretions, and has a significantly decreased level of consciousness then they are considered moribund - meaning imminent death, which could translate as having only hours or days left, but certainly not weeks.

Avatar n tn It's a different life b/c its highly structured to be 'liver friendly.' That means a strict, almost veggie diet, little dairy or protein-that ammonia thing w/the encephalopathy-and lotsa rest and much simpler now. Material things are not so important. We chose a 'lower', simpler standard w/'higher' rewards and satisfaction.
Avatar f tn She is jaundiced, in an obtunded state, incubated, ascites, high ammonia, and bleeding from the mouth. What more am I in for?
29837 tn?1414538248 Was thinking the other day how nice it would be to visit your city. Maybe after tx when I have the requiste energy. Don't know much, have read little, about ammonia levels. But if you read the post in a thread started by Pluggin Away yesterday he makes reference to ammonia levels, brain scatter (great term) and lactuose. Just a few threads down. Take care.
Avatar n tn She was taken to the hosptial from extensive bleeding from her esphogous. Her ammonia level was 400.They patched her esphogous and gae her medication for her ammonia rate. After being in ICU for 5 days they put her in a regular room. She was allowed to eat and then without reasoning they put a feeding tube in her. She got up to go to the rest room and passed out.Shortly after she started bleeding from the main artery to her stomach. She was sent back to ICU and they ballooned the two sites.
Avatar n tn not alot of meat although lately I have bee drinking a protein shake...has not changed the dizziness or the liver function. Very little sugar, no alcahol. I ma on a med topmax for the dizziness as a nuerologist suggested it is from migraines.
Avatar m tn When both of these things happen, your blood fills up w/ ammonia which will cause dementia and even brain damage or death. For some reason the ammonia bonds w/ the lactulose, so your body can get rid of it. Find a doctor who is willing to give you a biopsy. That is the only way to see what shape your liver is in. If you haven't already, get tested for Hepatitis.
Avatar n tn Ammonia will also work quite well but MIXING AMMONIA AND BLEACH PRODUCES A DEATH CLOUD. NEVER MIX THE TWO. EVER! You might also egg your parents to purchase an electrostatic dus particle eliminator for your room at home with what is called a HEAP filter. They are kind of expensive, though. But they will reduce your exposure to the particles that cause the inflammation.

Avatar m tn I'm 67 years old and have had clear CT cancer scans but am now scared to death that I will end up on dialysis soon as I can't have a transplant until I'm 5 years cancer free. When I try to get some estimates from my doc on how much time I have, or if I could possibly stabilize I don't felt much help. He just says if I take a guess, I will only be wrong. I have no diabetes, normal cholesterol, great blood pressure and other than the cancer and kidney disease I'm in great health.
Avatar m tn The premise of most pathophysiologic theories involves the accumulation of ammonia in the central nervous system, producing alterations of neurotransmission that affect consciousness and behavior. Ammonia interferes with brain function at many sites. Ammonia crosses the blood-brain barrier and directly depresses the central nervous system.
Avatar n tn has told me my father's body has survived but his brain has not he was taken off the ventilator and is now breathing on his own but their has been little response from the brain eg.
Avatar n tn I had to keep upping my dosage until I acheived that and then keep it there until my blood showed normal range for ammonia. The ammonia is what causes these symptoms and if not lowered can cause damage. So my advice is to stock up on T.P. and Preparation H and go for 30 ml. 3x daily. Have your Dr. check your blood for ammonia, then discuss lactulose dosage w/ him/her. Have they tested you for Hep C? If not have them do so. Hope I helped.
Avatar f tn Thank you I wondered if I had not posted correctly. I was just hoping someone had the same type of problem that could just hit a little bit of information. To say I am not scared to death would be a lie. Thank you for your answer.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn If it decompensates very far then your only options become either a liver transplant or death.  Your doctor may have been a little too optimistic (or maybe you just heard it that way) in saying that in one year there will be a one pill cure for HCV. There are many studies underway now and we almost certainly will have a new interferon-free tx on the market within a few years, but I've not heard anyone promise one pill in one year.

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.
1201072 tn?1289764191 sometimes adding to your knowledge base helps understand the situation a little better. You mentioned some hallucinations; while there’s no way to tell what’s happening without medical records etc, she might be suffering from elevated serum ammonia. This can occur as part of cirrhosis, and is manageable to some extent with meds. Be sure to mention this to the doctor; they can do a rather easy blood test to confirm this, and act appropriately.
29837 tn?1414538248 Although she had a biopsy last December which showed some scarring and no Cirrhosis, her ammonia level was high and she's taking Lactulose three times daily at one tablespoon a dose to combat that. After my insistence, she has finally teamed up with a Hepatologist instead of her quacky primary, and now is under her care. Although I also had an issue with ammonia before my transplant, I don' ever recall losing my memory. Hector thinks she has Cirrhosis, but the biopsy did not show that.
250798 tn?1347938480 Today, Today I feel a little sad, a little tired, a little bogged down, I feel a little bit of every thing. I find it hard to talk to my co-worker's as they all talk over me...Or talk to my close friends and family just entangling them in my delicate web of problems. They have their own worries to ponder about. A couple of incidences, that i thought at the very moment i would forget stuck with me and followed me to work this Monday morning, etching its mark in my brain.
Avatar f tn I agree with those who said your partner needs to be seen by a Hepatologist ASAP. In fact, he should go to the emergency room immediately. He has symptoms of advanced liver disease (Decompensated Cirrhosis). While no one knows how long he may live, he will definitely hasten his death by not seeking help immediately. He may linger a while and die from liver failure over a period of time.
Avatar n tn I have literally tried most everything available for my symptoms with little to no success over the years, and I feel very strongly about continuing down this path, given the positive results I had experienced in a short amount of time.
Avatar m tn 'Use the black seed because it has a relief of all diseases, but death.' About a week ago I started using black seed not the oil but the raw black seed. Guys it does not taste good but it has many profits you can google it if you want. The first day I took 3 spoons of raw black seeds. You put it in your mouth, chew it, suck out the oil in it and then carefully swallow it with water. From the first day I have seen big results.
