Ammonia usage

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia usage


Avatar m tn Electrolytes are fine. CBC is fine. Things like ammonia, GGT, all kinds of stuff normal. What I'm left with is continuing hypotension and orthostatic hypotension symptoms, a bilirubin level that has gone up even more after quitting everything (most recently 3.1 total, 0.7 direct), and what is a strangely low heart rate for me. I work on a computer 14 hours a day and rarely exercise. I don't think my pulse should be sitting in the 55-65 range and I don't feel good when it is.

163305 tn?1333672171 ) -- they all contain the same ingredients --- so probably will be sticky... But under a different name... Here's a very interesting article on the Ammonia buildup that I'd never seen before... Not to mention - it shows the usage of antibiotics in place of lactulose --- specifically that of Monistat type drugs... Very interesting: Anyhow - hugs - hope you have a GREAT Trip.
419309 tn?1326506891 Serial (daily) assessments were done, including mental status, asterixis, a conventional Number Connection Test (NCT), bowel movements and blood ammonia level. The assessment of the mental status was performed using the West Haven scale.

RESULTS: During the HPHC diet, 122 patients (79.7%) improved in terms of response definition.
Avatar n tn There are conditioners you can add to your pool water to keep your skin from becoming dry or irritated if you have sensitive skin. Because of public usage, a facility like the YMCA would add more chlorine to kill germs. Kids like to pee in the pool!! I would never avoid a delightful experiences such as pool outings with family and friends because I feared the danger of chlorine. There are many things in life that present much more hazzard. If you enjoy swimming at the Y, go for it.
149087 tn?1258457420 I have made a few friends whom I try to keep tabs on every now and then. And this site also helps me stay in tune with my own usage. It helps me remember how dangerous prescription drugs can become, if you let them take ahold of you. So again I am sorry if I upset anyone today, I just hated the way mommapoohbear was lashing out on everyone, and then changing her story, which I did catch from her previous post. So I called her out on it.
5611452 tn?1370974704 Also there were numerous posts about ammonia and HE. As though HE is diagnosed using ammonia levels. That is not how HE is diagnosed and since you are not compliant with Lactulose who can say what you HE status is. Due to so much misinformation it is especially important to be under the care of a hepatologist who is the only one who can assess your true health status. And as I stated it is false that any surgery is "Too much risk to liver and it would put me in hepatic crisis".
Avatar n tn I have been suffering with "brain fog", or at least that's what I've come to believe it is. I have Hepatis C and I do not know how long I've had it. I had a liver biopsy in 2001 and was told I had stage 2 liver disease. My liver enzymes are always slightly elevated and I have occasion pain and vomitting. My ammonia level is normal. Could Hep C really be the cause of this "Brain Fog" and if so, what can I do to improve my mind? I am an ICU nurse and I try not to self diagnose.

Avatar f tn I am currently back on wellbutrin but due to the affects it had on me, I'm not sure I would like to continue its usage. It has alleviated my symptoms of really high blood pressure and rate but not by a whole lot . So my questions are as followed: Is it legal or even standard practice to have follow appointments over the phone without being seen by your general physician while on anti-depressants or other drugs that should be consistently monitored?
Avatar n tn Smells kind of amine like ammonia or fishy 3. Hurts and makes the vaginal tissue fragile and sore, may itch too Yeast Infection: 1. Cottage Cheesy thicker curd-like discharge tends to be whitish 2. Smells kind of like raw bread yeast...not so bad 3. Itches so much you want to slide down a banister covered with hair brushes! Usually yeast infections are easier to clear up with over the counter medications.
Avatar f tn I am allergic to ppd - the best colour I have used which is totally safe is reflex naturtint- it's ppd ammonia and paraben free- its a semi colour lasts me about 3 weeks and I go swimming every week so it's not bad- costs £10 on holland and Barrett website - so works out under £20 a month- much cheaper than hair salon
Avatar f tn The last survey I read of 13 HVC positive people whose partners had a mean average of 144 years living together, there were only 2 partners that were positive for HVC, both of whom had a history of unsafe drug usage. There was much more panic about transmission in 1993 than now. Good luck with you tx - onwards and forwards; I'm glad your damage is reasonably minimal at this point.
Avatar m tn Some people, including myself, have had a smell that only they can smell. It could smell like dog-poop, old cheese, ammonia, a burning smell, etc. The smell comes on, often, as a result of a cold or sinus infection. Some, not all, of these smells are caused by an anaerobic bacteria thriving in the upper sinuses, and I was able to remove mine with a Flip-Turn Sinus Flush, and many other people have had success with it as well: http://www.medhelp.
233616 tn?1312790796 I would guess that if there is a connection it would be with long term usage. I am diabetic so I probably have more interest in this subject than most. I don't use Metformin however.
Avatar n tn And so far, we haven’t seen any harmful issues with usage. He has been on it since age 4. I would think the chronic use of Prednisone is the greater risk factor. I know for us, it has severely delayed Julian’s onset of puberty. He is 15 and no signs yet. They just informed us thru the pediatric endocrinologist that he will have to have Testosterone injections beginning over the summer. I can’t wait for those outbursts!
Avatar n tn I am wondering - there was a post above about TV watching and Computer usage. I hate to say it - but I am in front of a computer all day and then at night the TV is on in the house...usually I read a book and hubby watches TV - but I am in the same room with him. I wonder if there is any correlation - I am thinking that it could be affecting part of our brains that "turns on" this smoke smell.
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...
211940 tn?1267884866 I'm with you smgkim .And I too wish someone had better news. But here's my story. It's sorta long but am wondering if any previous conditions tie into this one. I am a 56 yr young female. Who is a Christian and loves the Lord. Before all this occurred and even after some what enjoyed living, traveling, dancing, gardening, being with friends and family to the fullest. But now I do as much as I can do.
Avatar f tn If you eat the whole six-pack, I suspect you'll vomit it up forthwith! Ha! The usage information is on the packaging itself. You say in your most recent post you are having a regular bowel movement in the mornings! This is fantastic! So, I suspect your evening indigestion is not a big deal, and is on account of gas. You can get gas from many things, including the constipation and H.
Avatar n tn SwanSong: Very, very interesting. I am currently experiencing an outbreak on my lids just these past few days. I am so upset because I really thought I had this thing under control.
