Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia toxicity water


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??
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 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.

Avatar m tn You put it in your mouth, chew it, suck out the oil in it and then carefully swallow it with water. From the first day I have seen big results. People at work started to ask me about what I ate that day, it felt grate but it wasn't over. Next day I took two spoons the same way at night. I realised that my urine became yellowish and not white as when I had PATM. The third day my PATM was completely gone ALHAMDULILAH.

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!
3060903 tn?1398568723 - The garment industry has an enormous impact on your health and the environment, from pesticide and heavy water usage to toxic dyes and the carbon footprint of shipping Many laundry detergents contain toxic chemicals that contribute to water pollution.
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.
264233 tn?1216345915 And saline is salt water. So combine a bunch of salt with salt water and waddya got? REALLY salty water! And no, really salty water will not cure your HCV. It will not make you better. In fact, the blood coursing through your veins is already quite similar to sea water in composition. So if salt water worked at curing the virus, we'd never get infected with it in the first place!

Soaking in a warm tub of water always helped my body aches or getting outside if you don't let yourself get overheated. Treat yourself well and drink lots of water even if you don't want to. It helps with all side effects. I hope you don't mind but I did say a prayer for you.
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.
Avatar f tn I am forcing him to drink water too. Lol, I also mix cranberry juice wit a bit of water and seltzer and he loves it. Just make sure he is not on any meds such as warfarin, because cranberry juice interacts with it. I also cut up lemons and cucumbers and add slices to a pitcher of water. He likes that. Then I make fruit smoothies in a blender: strawberries, blueberries, 1 banana, a splash of juice and a few scoops of vanilla ice cream make for one happy hubby!!!
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 n tn OIL I am eating lot of vegs and fruits + 3 - 4 liters of water in a day. So basically what ever you eat don't use Direct SALT and oil. But make sure you get some salt/sodium by eating spinach or vegetables. Please PLease don't jump in all in one time day. Slowly change your diet. If you can, try to be vegetarian. Try for 2 weeks you will definitely see the difference.
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 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 n tn I have the strongest urge all the time to smell gasoline. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. It is driving me crazy I want to smell it all the time. I want to taste sooo bad but I know that it would prob. kill me. We have a gas can in our garage and everytime I walk past the garage my mouth begins to water. I am anemic also and drink diet pop alot. I like other chemical smells also like old car fumes, dirtbike and atv fumes, some paints, some markers, etc.
Avatar n tn I believe it is caused by high levels of ammonia in the blood. Laxatives help in getting rid of the toxins by speeding things along. When you consider that we are using narcotics daily, our age and our physical condition, it's certain that we will have some memory lapses. Just try to stay busy and use some sort of diversion to stay focused. "Nodding out" doesn't help matters! J.B.
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 m tn (6) According to the CDC, “In most cases mold can be removed from hard surfaces by a thorough cleaning with commercial products, soap and water, or a bleach solution of no more than 1 cup of bleach in 1 gallon of water. Absorbent or porous materials like ceiling tiles, drywall, and carpet may have to be thrown away if they become moldy.
Avatar n tn The main culprits are tomatoes, potatoes sweet and regular(although you can have potatoes if you cube them, soak them overnight, drain the water off and boil them because that takes a lot of the potassium out), squash, lettuce and spinach, nuts, bananas, oranges. And he said to follow a low salt/low cholesterol diet. He also said to reduce red meat and pork consumption by half. You don't have to cut out these foods just reduce them significantly.
Avatar n tn TOXICITY FROM VARIOUS ALTERNATIVE MEDS. 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.
Avatar m tn The doctor never did see the bugs on us, but gave elomite and we had all the clothes, sheets, etc. washed in hot water. Scabies do tend to cause itching more at night. We got better after the treatment.
Avatar n tn I'm 51 F and have several illnesses that I am dealing with. Cancer, MS, Liver has enlarged to reach into my left ribcage and is pressing up against my stomach. So I have liver issues.

Avatar m tn Yes they found something to eat and have water too. Right I am seating next to a cup of water with cinnamon in it. May start pour it in the ears they don't like it. lungs is taken the smell and force it in the ears. They are very very small. They do make scented med mask. I may take pillow case and shirt to soak in cinnamon and dry. Here is why the soap. This is head and shoulder. This is the only soap I use on the body.
Avatar n tn She is a much better ballerina than a swimmer so I am anticipating great amounts of intake of chlorinated water as she ramps up. I am still taking the Ativan to sleep and am consistantly having the tremors after 3:30am as I mentioned earlier. The Ativan has been an excellent choice to help me sleep well and not freak out when the tremors occur. Also it does not make you sleepy at all the next day.
