ammonia

Avatar n tn lactate, pyruvate, ammonia, urine organic acids and serum amino acids after an all night fast. This might yield some more possible etiologies or at least rule out some.
5901196 tn?1395547509 If you treated before with peg-interferon and ribavirin (although this combo was not available in the late nineties) you will have to wait for the next generation of treatment which will be all oral drugs without peg-interferon. Ammonia? It is very rare to have high ammonia levels caused by liver disease without being stage 4 (cirrhosis). When was the last time you had a biopsy? In the last 3 years. Are any of your blood levels abnormal besides AST and ALT?
91034 tn?1401419903 Although DNA-based assays are highly accurate, rarepolymorphisms in primer binding sites may yield erroneous result.Reference Range: Viral RNA Not DetectedQuantitative Range: 43-69,000,000 IU/mL My second blood test at 4 weeks was undetected a DIFFERENT test please see the IU/mL HCV PCR QUANT (VIRAL LOAD) <=15 IU/mL Not Detected, 95%positivity rate) of HCV genotypes 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, 3, 4, 5, and 6 is 15 IU/mL.
Avatar m tn I guess you know this, but just in case- Bleeds always make ammonia sskyrocket... high ammonia can cause coma But a bleed (even a bad one) can happen to people with high OR LOW ctps or melds people with LOW ctps or melds have a pretty good chance of standing tx without it causing fast decomp... people with high ctp or melds have a pretty good chance of tx actually CAUSING rapid decomp.
Avatar n tn I am defenitly no expert and yield to anyone that has something better to say. But I know the alchol and Acetaminophen changed me and my health.
Avatar n tn I too have hear about a possible correlation with a reaction to Hepatitis B vaccinations. I think this would be a low yield pursuit, but since you have no other diagnosis you might want to pursue it. Since I have not examined you or seen any of your work-up thus far, it is hard for me to comment on either the vaccine reaction or possible other entities that might cause your problems. One thing I might suggest is a work up for mitochondrial disorder.

Avatar n tn Since we deal alot with mitochondrial diseases here at the Cleveland Clinic, one of the things that might yield a diagnosis is a mitochondrial work up. This would include lactate, pyruvate, ammonia, amino acids, organic acids, free and acyl carnitine in the serum; amino acids, organic acids, free and acyl carnitine in the urine. Based on these tests, the possiblity of a mitochondrial disease might be uncovered. Best of luck finding an etiology for your problem.

233616 tn?1312790796 Notifying the laboratory when this infection is suspected helps because a special growth medium should be used to increase the diagnostic yield. Doctors should have a high suspicion for this organism when patients present with gastrointestinal illness, fever, or shock following the ingestion of raw seafood, especially oysters, or with a wound infection after exposure to seawater. How is V. vulnificus infection treated? If V.
94007 tn?1224766336 Have many of cirrhosis 'signs' low platelets, spider angioma, red palms, very low LDL (now 65), seemingly unstable blood sugar, weight management challenge - lack appetite. Even with this slew of papers, can't find ammonia level. Post tx pcr at 5 months with 2 million vl, ast/alt 51/71. Have had recent endo with no evidence of varacies but have symptom-free Barrett's, Gastritis, Reflux. Personal thought is that would have been better off with more of the evil capsules and a tad longer.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Lowered results are also indicative of increased blood lactate, which interferes with the blood test enzyme reaction when measuring. Phenytoin, primidone and glucocorticoids are medicines that can all yield lower results. Low readings are also typical of a dog that has been starved or has malnutrition. BANDS X1000/UL (0.0 - 0.3) Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell designed to defend the body against infection.
867582 tn?1311630997 (I lost the source but will find again and post here). Also, the herx reaction is apparently due to ammonia which is a waste product produced by the bacteria (and parasites as well). L-ornithine is said to 'mop up'/help the body eliminate the ammonia which is very toxic, especially to the brain. OK, here is the cure. It works and I've cured myself twice this way...You need 4 antibiotics (15 of each kind) to begin: Doxycycline, Minocycline, Tindamax and Bactrim.
Avatar n tn He has been hospitalized for the last month due to ammonia and fluid build up in his system which caused him to be in a unconscious-like state. It took him several days to come around from this state but he is now conscious although it seems to have affected his memory and he is very weak. He is currently on Lactulose 5 times a day and he does have some kidney problems although I don't know how severe.
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...
