12773 tn?1328916786 but sent it off anyway, and will get back to me, one thing I didnt mention to her was the smell of Ammonia I had started smelling the day before. Its not on my skin, or anything, I do bathe everyday and use soap. But just in my nose. I have been a bit snuffy and hoarse the past few days, as a sick co worker refuses to cover her mouth. , but doc says there is alot of that going around.
Avatar n tn I can smell the ammonia in my nose and on my breath. I've had blood work done and my liver function is normal, ammonia levels normal, blood glucose and a1c is normal. I have been diagnosed with non -alcoholic fatty liver and I have insulin resistance. Anything would be helpful!
Avatar f tn My gastroentologist would like to start me on lactulose after recent blood test shows elevated ammonia levels. I was curious on what causes this. A previous blood test done earlier this year with my primary doctor only showed an elevated liver function which is why I visited the gastro in the first place. No word of high ammonia levels till now. The only difference is i started drinking protein shakes in the morning for breakfast. Could this have anything to do with it?
Avatar m tn If your problem is liver related, you will need to go to a gastroenterologist for exam and bloodwork to measure what is in your blood - including ammonia levels and your liver enzymes. I have had a liver biopsy 2 years ago and found out I had the cirrhosis. If you do have this illness, besides seeing a gastroenterologist you will need to change your diet substantially.
Avatar f tn About a year ago my urine is extremely strong, it has an ammonia sulfur smell. I drink 8-10 glasses of water a day, I have been tested for UTI, no burning everything came back negative. This smell is so strong it's embarrassing to use public restrooms. I can't use the bathroom at a friend's because it is so embarrassing. However, I do have the mirena and I'm wondering if this has something to do with it. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Urinary bladder infection and kidney infections do produce strong smelling urine. Another reason is dehydration. Strong ammonia smell is due to protein breakdown. 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.
Avatar n tn There was this old wrinkly thing smelling exactly like the way dat black discharge has been smelling. I've been son embarassed but after reading the testimonies of my sisters on the net, I realised I wasn't alone in this world. So I thank everyone for their information coz Iif I didnt read about yr stories and advice, I wouldnt have realised that I had an old tampon lost inside me. What a relief.
Avatar f tn welll i toke two hpt test the first one i drank a lot of water and it diluted the result witht the second i held my urine and myself and dh can see a line wainting to come thru but it is very fiant. and its 4 days late for my cycle. i dont think the hpv can cause ammonia smelling urine but not for sure. they might proscribe metronidazole(flagyl) or metro-gel. or clindamiacin for bv. baacterial infection. when yyou have your pap smear they wil do the whiff test. if not bv thenit could be uti.
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 m tn Aim playing racket ball three times a week for well 2-3 hours. I notice this ammonia smell with my sweat.Now I always sweat heavy when I work out. But this ammonia smell new. Other than this smell aim fine losing some weight.
Avatar n tn I recently had an episode where there was a very strong ammonia odor present during bowel movements. I had my last blood test appoximately 6 mos. ago and all levels were normal. What could possibly be the cause of this odor? What actions should I take?
Avatar n tn One of the meds I amon is coumadine a blood thinner. Could I have thinned my blood to thin and now have ammonia in my blood? What could cause the headaches? Is it serious?
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar n tn It would be a good idea for you to drive him as he is a hazard to other people not only himself, I dont know about smelling ammonia but I wondered if he eats before he goes out as it could be low blood suger or even diabetes he should have a sugar test done, does he take any meds as sometimes there are side effects, any anti histimines that are not non-drowsy? If he passes out he definatly should go back to the Doctor and tell him and DO NOT let him drive ...
Avatar n tn For example, a person with a failing liver or kidneys may smell of ammonia...A diabetic with blood sugar problems may smell like Juicy Fruit gum...Someone with a throat or lung infection may have horrid smelling breath..Someone with a yeast overgrowth will smell sour...Hopefully this helps...

Avatar f tn Started getting these paper like cuts above my clitoris and on the sides of my clitoris 1 yr ago. My discharge also smells like cat food or very ammonia smelling. But it's not excessive discharge, nor milky/grey white. It looks normal. I've been tested every 6 months to find out what this issue is. I've been tested for herpes and other STDs a total of 5 times from 2011-2013. All tests come back negative.
Avatar f tn My staffshire terrier is 5 years old. In April 2015 we took him to the wet and he had blood work all his bloodworm came back normal. It is not October 2015 within the last 5-6 months my dog Beamer has gotten renal and chronic kidney failure his creatine levels were at a 5.2 and the Bun( blood urine and nitrogen) was 47 he was in a emergency 24 hour clinic the last four days and we were able to get him home. Since he's been home he's been shaking uncontrollably ..
886699 tn?1270783344 The problem stopped for several months, but has returned since he started growth hormone injections, which affect blood glucose and metabolism. Excess ammonia can be caused by blocked metabolic pathways, deficiencies of B vitamins and amino acids, and infections. Sorry, I don't have more info I can remember at the moment. I read quite a bit about this three years ago.
Avatar n tn The minute I had discontined this supplement my perspiration had ceased to smell like a horse, (ammonia). Are you taking and supplements that might be affecting your body chemistry? I think the other person is right in, (just basically), saying drink your water!!! Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I regularly drink lots of water, and no i do not have a urinary tract infection because I often get these and when I do it is accompanied by lots of pain, and I am not in any pain at the moment. The only symptom I have is strong smelling urine and I do get a lot of lower back pain. Could this be a kidney infection? I have had a urinanalysis, this came up clear.
Avatar m tn Ask to have a fasting blood sugar drawn one morning, to see if you have developed and blood sugar or insulin issues you must have this test. 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.

4043517 tn?1374010173 At 8pm 2/16/14 I started my quest to kill this insidious virus that has been running free since 1974-75 busily turning my health blood infused liver into a solid chunk of overdried pemmican where blood flow is suppressed and fibrous bridges and walls impede the journey of cleansing toxins from my body.
377412 tn?1283813246 All the books and websites Ive been on not ONE mentioned this. And its just odd smelling (of course I have HYPERSENSITIVE nose these days too). But I just recently noticed it. And the discharge is very slight no spotting or anything to be alarmed about. But just wanted to hear what some of u much further along experienced. Ericka 8.
Avatar m tn In the years to follow, when my liver was stressed, my body would sometimes emit an odour that was sweet and urine-like, and my urine would be dark and strong smelling, and my other back to being pale. Now, I have realized that some people don't seem to show any of these symptons, but I DO know, that other people do. But you say your urine is bright yellow. Sounds like your body is excreting something it doesn't need, like vitamin C or B for example.
Avatar f tn ran out again and grabbed another machine (pulseox), more frantic rushing out to grab more ammonia pellets, then ran out to call an ambulance. I can recall smelling ammonia and not caring and then finally moving toward consciousness and waking up. They told my husband I had a "mild case of syncope" and sent me home. I was exhausted afterward and it took me a few days to recover. My husband is also concerned about a colpo etc. based on what he saw/heard.
258127 tn?1223128840 In the last month, I have begun smelling burning rubber and smoke that no one else can and tasting ammonia. I have severe allergies which lead to chronic sinusitis at least twice a year, if not more. Traditional allergy meds don't always help. (Claritin seemed to help for about a week and then stopped helping.) I have an ovarian cyst.
Avatar n tn Diabetes has fruity or sweet chemical smell with ketoacidosis, however my husband had an acuity ammonia smell. A fruity odor to the breath occurs as the body attempts to get rid of excess acetone through the breathing. This is a characteristic sign of ketoacidosis, which may occur in diabetes, and is a potentially life-threatening condition.
