Ammonia toxicity in cells

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia toxicity in cells


Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
233488 tn?1310696703 THE CASE AGAINST EASIER MARIJUANA ACCESS At one time asbestos used in school construction, doctors recommending cigarettes to soothe sore throats and putting cocaine in soft drinks seemed like good ideas. Now we can only wonder, “What were they thinking?” Perhaps we can forgive our forebears because scientific evidence of the cancer causing properties of asbestos and tobacco and the addicting and health destroying nature of cocaine was not in existence at the time.
374652 tn?1494815035 Most effective in blocking the activation of NFKappaB, a nuclear activator of proinflammatory gene expression and also extremely involved in the formation of fiber forming cells in the liver from stellate cells) Green tea extracts : Same as Curcumin, with less NFKB deactivating capacity, but likely other complex antiinflammatory benefits. HR recommends Lactobacillus GG taken concurrently with Alinia. Alinia will wipe your intestinal bacteria and the probiotic will replace it.
1008841 tn?1293602560 The malnourishment and toxicity from the compounds in the tap water, cumulatively build and eventually manifests in symptoms of disease. They can even contribute to being overweight or obese because a toxic liver orders your fat cells to holds on to toxins until it's ready to process them. http://www.examiner.
29837 tn?1414538248 Monitoring of food consumption, gain in body weight and physical observations did not reveal any treatment-related toxicity in any of the group of rats. Terminal autopsy also did not reveal any signs of toxicity. Further, no significant alterations in relative organ weight, serum biochemistry and urinalysis were observed up to 1% lactulose supplementation level. The results suggest that supplementation of lactulose in the diet does not produce any toxicity at the doses tested.
144210 tn?1273092382 (nyg) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ribavirin destroys red blood cells which can and often does result in hemolytic anemia. Ribavirin is not primarily responsible for a low platelet count. Ribavirin causes the premature breakdown of red blood cells which results in the anemia which so often afflicts us during treatment.
1028452 tn?1537452084 The current theory regarding mode of activity is that silymarin supports liver health in two major ways. First, it alters the outer cell membrane of hepatocytes (liver cells) in such a way as to prevent penetration of harmful substances into the interior of cells.
317787 tn?1473362051 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.
Avatar m tn It raises questions about brain matter in relation to ammonia and encephalopathy, but really doesn't address the findings in relation to viral infection. 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 n tn In most cases, though, there is a loss of liver cell function, and an increased resistance to blood flow through the damaged liver tissue (a condition known as portal hypertension) leading to esophageal varices (enlarged, swollen veins at the lower end of the esophagus). Severe cirrhosis leads to ammonia toxicity, hepatic coma, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, and kidney failure. As liver cells are destroyed, they are systematicallyreplaced by scar tissue.
Avatar m tn And, unfortunately a side effect of the procedure is Hepatic Encephalopathy (Ammonia Toxicity). With increased Portal Pressure fluid loss to the abdomen and an injured liver not properly synthesizing proteins and/or not cleaning toxins as it normally would, you experience all kinds of chemical imbalances affecting many systems.
Avatar m tn Animals that received the supplement had a higher content of collagen, activated stellate cells, and apoptotic parenchymal cells in biopsy tissue at weeks 8 and 10 of treatment and more extensive alterations in serum albumin and bilirubin concentrations (Group B vs. Group A).
Avatar n tn He treated with interferon in NYC in 1997 and relapsed at 6 mo PCR. We're now down in FL where there is ALOT less help. He is getting treated successfully for HIV thru Ryan White but has been denied medicaid and SSDI. He needs to treat NOW for Hep C and cryo because he is having symptoms to indicate that these are getting worse. We have exhausted all avenues in Broward County, FL. The public hospitals do not have a hepatologist on staff (can you believe that!?!
488823 tn?1218374167 I have not been around for a while after failing my last trial in Miami. My liver is all scared and I'm sure much worse then 2009-2010 but now My new doctor has put me on Pegasys proclick (180) the usual Rribavirin 1200 mg a day and the new Incivek 750 mg every 8 hrs. I'm close to 70 years old and I guess this will be my last chance as he put it, so I'm very concerned with the outcome and what to expect during this 3 month although I still might be on the old medicine beyond this 3 months.
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.
264233 tn?1216345915 I brought up the water treatment issue to show that it has been tested for toxicity. If you research its use in that one area you'll find that its a lot safer than any other chemical being used to purify drinking water. Chlorine interacts with other chemicals and produces carcinogins. chlorine dioxide doesn't. Most of India is switching to it in there water supplies for this very reason. Chlorine as you say as far as i know is not a cure for fungal infections.
Avatar m tn Virons do better in a high LDL high triglyceride environment, ergo changing the lipid profile can reduce the virons ability to invade cells multiply and cause cell death. Diebetics do much worse in treating partly because insulin cancels out interferon, partly because their lipid profiles are out of whack, both of which help the virus. Looking at how to change our biomarkers is a viable adjust to SOC as it increases the likelihood of a positive outcome, a cure.
Avatar f tn ” “Once the important thyroid hormones, T3 and T4, are released into your bloodstream, they enter cells of organs and play an important role in regulating major functions in the body. Adequate amounts of thyroid hormone are also required throughout your life if your brain is to function normally. Most of your cognitive abilities -- such as concentration, memory, and attention span -- as well as mood and emotions depend on normal thyroid hormone levels.
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.
Avatar f tn mannito/lactulose test or PEG There are other possibilities, like low stomach acid, low enzymes, H. Pylori infection, ammonia toxicity in the G/I system, Candida, kidney and/liver dysfunction,magnesium deficiency and many more, however most of these are inter-connected to each other and to leaky gut as well. I'm certain that some of the above have not been ruled out, or the testing was inadequate/flawed.
233616 tn?1312790796 As long as one kept the dose low, monitored the liver, and watched for lactic acidosis, what would be the harm in trying? arguments in favor or opposed please weigh in, if obese women went from 20% to 60% SVR that should tell us something??
Avatar n tn thinking it could be due to toxicity being created from imuran. They are doing blood tests in the middle of Nov. He doesn't seem to be "overly" concerned, and that drives me crazy. My bilirubin was normal, and in the last 3 months has been creeping up. Anyway, anyone been battling autoimmune for a long time. Any helpful tips?? Any diet tips? My Dr. seems to think the meds are working just fine, I don't need to be overly concerned w/diet, etc. I diagree!
Avatar f tn A lot of doctors simply don't check for toxins or parasitic exposure. I have Hepatic Encephalopathy, which causes ammonia toxicity and other toxins to build up in my blood and pass thru the blood/brain barrier, due to a cirrhotic liver, and it presents very similar to your symptomology. I wish you the best.
Avatar m tn One of my friends was the Viet Nam Vets Hep C top folks and he told me I would have died of old age before the Hep C did it Lots of information on the website you suggested --- going to take a lot of time to read through I just feel like the treatment changed pathways in my body from side effects that never reverted back to the way they were prior to treatment ---- almost like road work where they divert traffic and when the work was finished the original road never opened back up I have been
181575 tn?1250202386 I read that this is the best there is and still the pts appeared to be fine in terms of sides / toxicity. So don't let your doctor scare your with double-combo. It really should be a worthwhile discussion.
Avatar n tn Guys if you are suffering from body odor then please test for heavy metal toxicity in the body. It causes chaos in the body and allows all the other infections live for ever. You believe it or not I am cured from this odor problem without any treatment and in fact am feeling vibrant in years. I am able to eat anything I want. I cant believe I got my life back. I have suffered like hell and almost killed myself. I can help you all any time if you want to get rid of this f**king problem...
Avatar n tn I've been looking for a site to explain the same cravings you are having - I myself have been a strict veg 5yrs ago - anemic - now just eat healthy without meat/pasta accept chx/fish/shellfish - I walk in a ceramic pottery warehouse and go nuts - I eat this natural gum 5-8 times a day called peelu dental gum - it gives me that hint taste of cement.
Avatar n tn He was not by any means active but it was a 100% increase from the day prior. Still very gray and the ammonia smell in the house when i got home from work was very strong. I am starting to understand now that this really is a roller coaster ride. I know how i feel I cannot imagine how he does.
Avatar n tn This helps alot when/if you get that ammonia taste in your mouth, which is often a sign of blood acid being too high. Baking soda helps improve the imbalance in your blood caused by faulty kidney function, but please don't make a statement tat it halts kidney disease! I wish it was that simple and easy! I also apologize for stating dialysis is not a good choice - sometimes it is the only choice.
Avatar f tn I have 2 brothers who both have autoimmune diseases plus a cousin who just passed from one. In addition, my cousin who passed, her mother passed from Lupus in her forties. I have also been thru tx for HCV and am okay now for about yr and half.
