29837 tn?1414538248 Lactulose has profound health benefits by way of increasing bifidobacterial flora in the intestine of infants thereby protecting them against enteric infection, constipation and systemic encephalopathy. In the present study to assess the sub chronic toxicity of lactulose syrup, the rats were fed on a basal feed supplemented with lactulose syrup at 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0% for a period of 21 weeks.

Avatar m tn We need money to solve this, I got home and looked at my blood work, its very basic, Im going to need money to get even a comprehensive blood panel, There are toxicity tests, SIBO home test, complete metabolic panel test, lyme disease (which is highky related to the parasites) comprehensive stool analysis, stool toxin and microbiology tests, metal test. These tests are out there, but we need the money. Genova, accessalab, quest diagnostics, Ubiome. They have the test we need.
317787 tn?1473362051 That being said I thought that since I was UND I no longer needed the Lactulose. Wrong! While I am UND hoping to be heading to SVR I realize that I need to take the Lactulose for now until my liver can filter toxins a little better than it is doing right now. My question is, are there are other things I can do in addition to the lactulose? Would a high fiber diet help?...or is it only the lactulose that removes the ammonia? I appreciate any advice.
233488 tn?1310696703 Already over 400 chemicals have been identified in marijuana including carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide and ammonia. “Hey man, you want a drag of cyanide and ammonia?” might not find as many takers among the tokers when the roach makes the rounds at parties. The FDA and physicians rightfully consider cannabis a drug and subject to federally stipulated rigorous study protocols.
Avatar m tn You know It's a GMO. A study published last year in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that half of grocery store meat tested harbored staph bacteria. Researchers ID the overuse of antibiotics in industrial agriculture as a major cause in the rise of superbugs in our grocery store food. MRSA kills about 19,000 people a year in America. Buy organic! Glyphosate, it's found in Roundup! It effects your hormones. It's now used primarily on corn and soy crops.
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 m tn have shown that an overnight fast in cirrhotic patients has lead to a metabolic state similar to that of healthy individuals after a 3-day fast.[19,20] This study is very interesting because it shows that hepatic glycogen reserves are extremely low in the affected liver and, as a consequence, an early switch to gluconeogenesis from amino acids originating from body protein is a status quo in cirrhosis.
Avatar m tn On the three areas that showed ****** in the Vit B study.....it's supposed to say "dr-ug Tx". One last comment..... The study you quoted on Folic Acid supplementation used 25 mg/kg of Folic Acid. If you used that amount on humans, it would be a huge dose. It seems to me the goal of the study was to see how much Folic Acid it would take to cause fibrosis....
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 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 n tn He may have hepatitic encephalopathy (confusion and disorientation) if he does not take his medications that prevent the build up of ammonia in his body caused by liver disease which might make him even harder to care for and in need for constant supervision. With the problems he has he very well might find himself returning to the hospital often in the days ahead.
163305 tn?1333672171 He too suggested another test to be sure, this time a PCR not just a TMA. He also mentioned a study that I may be able to get into but I can't think about that right now. I'm not discouraged just annoyed. I know I have decompensated cirrhosis which complicates treatment. Thanks to everyone here. I honestly couldn't have kept any degree of sanity during tx if it weren't for all of you.
488823 tn?1218374167 It sounds like you are having some symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy if you are on medication for ammonia. Hopefully your doctor is a liver specialist (hepatologist), and hopefully he is monitoring you carefully. Some of the side effects of triple therapy with Incivek include fatigue, flu like symptoms, nausea, rash, anal/rectal discomfort, and anemia. Do you have a friend or a family member who can help you out for the first 12 weeks?
3060903 tn?1398568723 While not typically associated with clothing, a recent pilot study found that cotton and polyester fabrics pick up both flame-retardant chemicals and plasticizers such as phthalates from indoor air.8 Phthalates are chemicals used to make plastics more pliable. They leach out from the plastics as the product ages, and are toxic to you and the environment. 9 Phthalates have carcinogenic effects and affect reproduction10 and development.
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.
Avatar m tn There is evidence of direct involvement of nerves by the infective agent, from the immune reaction of the patient or secondary to the toxicity of the drugs used during treatment. This group of neuropathies is often treatable or preventable. RECENT FINDINGS: There is a complex clinical picture of the neuropathy of leprosy, different pathological features and immunological mechanisms. If the skin is unaffected in leprosy it is not always easy to demonstrate that the neuropathy is due to leprosy.
181575 tn?1250202386 Monotherapy using lamivudine has the longest history of use and shows highest rate of resistance. A 2003 study of 998 patients showed 65% lamivudine-resistance mutations in 5 years. Lamivudine should no longer be used as monotherapy. 2. Monotherapy using adefovir has 29% mutation probability in 240 weeks, according to a 2006 study of 125 patients. 3. Entecavir is 100-fold more potent than lamivudine or adefovir.
Avatar m tn In the interest of full disclosure, I am one of those who had to quit treatment due to extreme side effects. I am also using Dr. Berkson's methods as a part of my overall protocol, with pretty dramatic positive effects, as reflected in my labs. So my beliefs are based on experience, my lab results, and research into the science of the substances I use for therapy. The thing that I find troubling is that absolutely definitive claims are being made on this thread that are not backed up.
Avatar n tn on full doses of meds svr is 44% for genotype 1's and 7o% for geno 2 and 3 which averages out to 53% for mixed groups. (study 4) (results were higher in study 5)...at 51% for gyno 1's and 76% for geno 2-3's. and the odds really raise if you have evr by week 12. see pegasys information from thier company. look up under "complete product information" and look at studies 4 and 5. http://www.rocheusa.com/products/pegasys/pi.pdf http://www.rocheusa.com/products/pegasys/index.
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 You might be having a rhythmic movement disorder, which more or less resembles the symptoms or even age related. Has your doctor done a sleep study? You need to continue the medication for couple of weeks as advised by your doctor and try to avoid trigger factors like alcohol, smoking and stress. It is better to consult a neurologist and get evaluated. Take care and updated on your thoughts and progress.
Avatar n tn We have tried to find a renal dietican (or any dietician) but are having some problems with insurance - and the fact that they only offer group study classes but don't have a one on one consulatations. Today my husband and I went to see his PCP and she said to stick to whole grains, vegetables, fruits and limited protein (the nephrologist said he could have up to 10 oz a day for his weight).
Avatar n tn If you find things that look like long skinny pieces of lint, I have found that those are what I believe to be antenae. I don't believe these things are mites of any type. Study of mites indicates that they are not. I believe that these things are some sort of mutated fleas. Fleas mutate easily, esp. after being bombarded by chemicals. Fleas jump like these things do n mites don't. Fleas can live for years in dormant state.
Avatar m tn "All of the research and documentation does NOT say this." Never said it did. And I don't give citations for statements that I haven't made. "HCV can and does cause issues in other systems of the body prior to F4. " I never said it didn't.
