Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia toxicity data

Avatar m tn Thanks faaris, though we are very happy to hear about your great findings we are worried about the possible toxicity. Just be careful. Perhaps it’s not that bad since Ray has confirmed it’s not so toxic as previously thought. Thank you and keep us updated on your progress.
Avatar n tn a person with HE eats a steak is more likely to feel the effects of that high level protein the day following due to the amount of ammonia the liver will produce to break down the proteins and then fail at removing all of the ammonia. The ammonia will then enter the blood stream and reach the brain increasing the severity of symptoms –Hence Hepatic Encephalopathy) I hope this will in some way help you out, Take care and Welcome to MedHelp!
Avatar m tn [14,33] The exact causes differ from patient to patient with the most prominent being chronic hyperinsulinemia, an affected pancreas due to alcohol toxicity, diminished glycogen storage capacity of the liver, and impaired glucose uptake from the skeletal muscles.[14] When cirrhosis reaches levels at which 80% of hepatocytes are dysfunctional, hypoglycemia is a frequent event due to hyperinsulinemia.
Avatar m tn I'm more inclined to suspect that these findings are more likely related to metabolic toxicity/ammonia due to cirrhosis rather than viral infection or liver fibrosis, especially since the article did not point to similar findings in the pre-cirrhotic patients with liver disease. Just my 2 cents.
Avatar m tn It can cause mild transient elevations in blood levels of AST and ALT, jaundice, and, in rare instances, liver failure. Liver toxicity with niacin is dose-dependent; toxic doses usually exceed 2 grams per day. Patients with pre-existing liver diseases and those who drink alcohol regularly are at higher risk for developing niacin toxicity. The sustained-release preparations of niacin also are more likely to cause liver toxicity than the immediate-release preparations.

Do you have a probiotic in place? Many small meals, well distributed over the day, with a decent but not excessive amount of lean protein mixed with mainly veggies and some fruits are necessary to not overburden the liver with excessive nutrient influx at any point in time.
Avatar n tn Also be aware there is a drug that is already available called Alinia that originally was not developed for the treatment of hep C, but recent testing suggests it may be a powerful HCV antiviral too (and its already FDA approved and available right now). Plus it has a very low toxicity and side effect profile.
Avatar m tn - If it 's from mold, mite, ammonia, C02... we should cough ourself but I never coughed. - 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 f tn Anemia The primary toxicity of Ribavirin is hemolytic anemia, which was observed in approximately 13% of all Ribavirin/peginterferon alfa-2a- treated subjects in clinical trials. Anemia associated with Ribavirin occurs within 1 to 2 weeks of initiation of therapy. Because the initial drop in hemoglobin may be significant, it is advised that hemoglobin or hematocrit be obtained pretreatment and at week 2 and week 4 of therapy or more frequently if clinically indicated.
264233 tn?1216345915 It has been tested in both humans and animals for toxicity.. I do know there is a patent for using it to clean blood donations of hepetitis and HIV and well as other virusus and bacteria. Another one for curing fungus nail infections . I'm not suggesting anything. You how ever are suggesting that I'm lying about being cured of Dengue within 24 hrs. So I'm not suggesting anyone do anything except investigate with an open mind to new possibilities, Why are you being so confrontational.
Avatar n tn TOXICITY FROM VARIOUS ALTERNATIVE MEDS. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=12950418&dopt=Abstract I wonder if you were on pegasys or pegintron or? pegasys is alot easier on people. the hair thing is not a big issue, as far as life or death is concerned. and couldn't your dr. give you some of the meds everyone here talks about to battle the blood problems with tx? perhaps medical appatite enhancers would work for you.
181575 tn?1250202386 Current guidelines for initial treatment of patients with HIV infection reflect that view by recommending a combination of 3 or more agents from different classes having different mechanisms of action. ... Although data are not available for all antiviral agents used to treat HBV infection, it is becoming clear that single-drug therapy may not provide a sufficiently high barrier to resistance.
233616 tn?1312790796 I found it interesting nonetheless. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/589647 Metformin May Up Alzheimer's Protein if Used Alone Metformin Beta-Amyloid Effect Raises Alzheimer's Concerns Janis Kelly March 16, 2009 — Diabetes mellitus is associated with increased risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD), but a new study of metformin suggests that diabetes treatments might bear some of the blame.
Avatar m tn I have seen military doctors at Walter Reed in Md to private doctors in several different states I have lived in since being medically retired I have had every test imaginable ---- I have blood tests of all sorts all the time Even my liver levels are in normal range (even though I still have a viral load) They keep saying they can't do anything until they cure the Hep C to eliminate that My ammonia levels fluctuate (depending on diet and activity) One doc was shocked at how high it was ---- 6 mo
Avatar n tn I have drawn these conclusions after gathering as much empirical data as possible. This data comes from medical consultations, reading and simple gut feelings. Thought #1: Our problem can be caused by diet. I just have this strong feeling that we are eating something that our brain simply does not appreciate. In response to this I have started a journal of everything I eat every day.
Avatar n tn I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I take baths in ammonia, borax and Dr. Bronners peppermint soap in my bath water. This has helped the most. I either steam iron or boil my clothes, towels and sheets. I drink a glass of red wine every night before going to bed. Theses are the things that have helped me get them down to almost nothing. I hope this helps. I've just opened a facebook page just for discussion on these bugs, life, support, etc. My name there is bugedout thugbugs.
Avatar f tn This offers some immediate relief. Spray directly to the bottom if you have an itch at night. The ammonia turns them away from coming out. I'm contemplating dip used for animals to kill the eggs. This worked for crabs once - that I got from an on-base bunk back in the Marines. This would be highly toxic and nothing a pregnant woman or woman wanting to get pregnant should consider. Yes - please keep adding to this forum. The problem's not going away soon mostly likely...
