Ammonia toxicity to fish

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia toxicity to fish


1491677 tn?1288466020 I have tried bottled water, letting water sit in the frig, yet the only water she will drink is the water I mix in her gravy train food. I am glad I can get her to drink this much water but I know she needs to be drinking more. It hasn't affected her health so far and I would like to take care of this problem before it does. What should I do??
3060903 tn?1398568723 15 A recent study from the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) directly linked plastics and man-made fibers to the pollution in fish.16 Microfibers, which are more prevalent than microbeads (found in face scrubs and similar items), are particularly dangerous as the fibers are easily consumed by fish and other wildlife, accumulating in the gut and concentrating in the bodies of other animals higher up the food chain. Textile fibers are found in both marine and freshwater fish.
Avatar f tn Im also feeling scatter-brained and tired all the time. I'm starting to feel depressed and want to just curl in a ball but I have kids to take care of. I'm tired of not knowing what to eat, what to do or who to talk to. Does this sound like something any of you know about?
1008841 tn?1293602560 In terms of diet, I believe you should be avoiding as much salt as possible, and at least for the short term, reduce animal proteins to avoid complications of ammonia toxicity. Try to limit your protein intake to things like legumes and soy products; they are less likely to metabolize into ammonia in your gut. Protein is an important component of your diet though; be sure to confirm any info you gather here with your doctor.
Avatar f tn The tests showed she had a significant intestinal yeast overgrowth, and low levels of iron, leading to ammonia toxicity, causing her brain fog. Based on her tests, it was recommended she take a supplement of arginine (an amino acid) and magnesium, to clear the brain fog, and go on an anti-yeast diet, along with other SPECIFIC supplements, such as B6, zinc, a chelated form of iron, L- glutamine, probiotics, digestive enzymes and an immunoglobulin supplement powder.
Avatar m tn The food industry has been adding it to certain sodas, juices, and sports drinks, including Mountain Dew, Fanta Orange, Sunkist Pineapple, and some Powerade flavors. (Gatorade announced it would remove the compound from its drinks in Spring 2013; Powerade is reportedly phasing out the chemical, too.) BVO's purpose? To keep the artificial flavoring chemicals from separating from the rest of the liquids.
Avatar m tn DETOXIFYING AMMONIA Ammonia toxicityIn part 2 of AMMONIA TOXICITY we are going to find out what we can do to remove ammonia from our body, both by supporting the organs involved in processing and disposing of it, and by taking supplements with an affinity for removing ammonia. We have seen that there are 3 organ systems in the body that produce and/or deal with ammonia: the liver, the kidneys and the intestines.
1028452 tn?1537452084 Yucca Saponins, and other components of yucca as well, have ammonia-binding activity. When ammonia is processed by the liver, uric acid is created. When added to the diet, Yucca Saponins pass the ammonia through the digestive tract unabsorbed and are then excreted in the feces. Yucca is also used in some dog foods to reduce the odor in their urine and bowel movements.
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!
163305 tn?1333672171 -) Luv ya, Maui Goof: RE: fish oil/cod liver oil: A friend called my attention to possible high levels of mercury found in fish... you may want to check it out. I use flax seed oil myself.
Avatar m tn My approach has been to change my lipid profile, alpha lipoic and coq10 are my methods in addition to more fish less meat.... since doing this, HDL is up 60 pt's ldl is down 20... my ALT/ast has fallen 200 pts...could this stategy have helped that?? I don't know, you decide. All I know is I'm able to sleep on my right side again, and not walking around like there's a knife in my side even though I've lowered my pain meds and eliminated several drugs.
Avatar n tn 4)without deoderant/antiperspirant, my odor is unbearable to myself after 12 hours, a point where i smell like pure funk, (not fish or ammonia, JUST ULTRA CONCENTRATED HUMAN FUNK.) 5) my body is cut, my complextion attractive, I am a fraternity vice president, leader and date the hottest women. my parents are key religious people in my state.
233616 tn?1312790796 Well I may not be the brightest kid on the block but was raised to use logic and finding out I had IR made all the difference in my approach to treatment for HCV I listened to CoWriter CS and HR all three said the same thing need to treat the IR First Once you are diabetic it is a steady downhill road no cure for Diabetes but there is a definate program to treat Type 2 diabetes with out having to take injections the rest of your life So finding out IR sooner rather than too late, was a b
Avatar n tn I also have Bipolar disorder and as a result, was placed on lithium for about 6 years. I reached toxicity once, and was switched to Depakote, Seroquel and Pristique. Absolutely could not touch the efficacy of lithium, so I begged my new psych to put me bad on. Mood stabilization was great, but I shook like a milkshake and could barely walk. Couldn't live with those symptoms, so lithium stopped and I was put on a new med called is a lifesaver...I am also down from 800 mg.
Avatar n tn When my husband died of cancer three years ago I took care of him at home with the help of Hospice and his last breaths were like a fish out of water. I wondered why God put me on this journey and I still have to remind myself that God's ways are always right. They may not make sense. They may be mysterious, inexplicable, difficult and even painful. But they are right. My mother received tainted blood years ago and now she is in her final days of liver cirrhosis.
Avatar n tn Be sure to eat a well balanced diet with the appropriate amount of iron. Be careful not to consume too much iron because it can lead to Iron Toxicity, an overdose of iron that can lead to death, .
Avatar n tn The first two nights I simply could not go back to sleep at all. My body wanted to go back to sleep, but, as I mentioned above, everytime I fell sleep the tremors woke me up. I'm on my 9th day and there seems to be no sign of letting up. I went to see my doctor on the fourth day--He prescribed Zolpidem, which I have been taken since.
Avatar n tn One doctor told me it was scabies, another told me it might be fleas, although they refused to actually look at the bugs to be sure of what they were. One doctor told me to go home, take a bath, and hire someone to clean my house. She reccomended a phsyciatrist and proceeded to ask me if I was on drugs. None of the above are true in my case. I have found that cold baths seem to either kill or paralyze them. I clean the floors with a rag and cold water regularly.
Avatar n tn After reading through this entire blog, I am convinced it has something to do with my hypothyroidism, or fatigue, or my recent diagnosis of Vitamin D deficiency and my thyroid levels are off right now too, not sure if there is a correlation (I just recently went vegan but added fish back to my diet to improve my vitamin D level), or a combination of all. I do computer work and work from home, so I'm constantly online for work and pleasure all hours of the day and night, so I'm often exhausted.
Avatar m tn try eating fish eggs. salmon eggs seem to work best for me and i stumbled across this by accident. we went out for sushi one night and i ended up getting about 5 orders of salmon eggs or IKURA in japanese... that's 2 pieces of sushi per serving. that night i was amazed how comfortable i was in bed. no feeling of 'bugs' or tingling while stumbling around bed. i slept like a baby! first i thought it might have been a b 12 deficiency but i tried eating steak and eggs consistently which didnt work.
Avatar m tn Hammer) does work to get these things under control...for most part! In laundry, bleach/borax/ammonia works the best! I think Long dryer cycles is what kills them, not hot water...although, I do let wash SOAK atleast couple hours-overnight! What do you use?? What works for you? I froze my bed over winter bc it was worst in the bed! I brought it in and laid on it within 5mins I swear crawling&covered w/these things again&again! Wth cud survive a deep freeze for 3+months in freaken WI????
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 f tn To my understanding you can't get pinworms from fish. But there are different worms you can get from undercooked fish. They could of gotten them from an infected bathroom somewhere or a public swimming pool. I always tell my kids to put toilet paper on any public toilet. Also, from touching grocery buggies after kids have been sitting in them. You never know where there hands have been! Think of all the people that have touched them before you. I have a strong idea of where ours came from.
551343 tn?1506834118 I think it was around 2001 or 2002, when I knew that something was terribly wrong, due to extreme fatigue. Went to a neuro this Jan and was dismissed because I am without health ins and could not afford all the required testing. In July I started with a new PCP who was outraged that I had not been dx with MS due to my textbook symptoms. Not much help for me except that I felt better that I had someone in the medical profession who believed me!!
Avatar m tn Other times, my ear or eye starts to hurt. It seems reasonable to me that tensing all the muscles on that side of my face might irritate the optic nerve? But then, I'm no doctor.
