1475202 tn?1536274577 Also a couple of days ago due to my ammonia level being high (68) I took a zinc sulfate 220mg prescibed by my specialist to help with the ammonia. In less than a hour I was experiencing the worst pain I ever had. It was in my entire abdominal area and all the way across my lower back. Finally I tried a warm bath and it took the pain away. My specialist even called in some pain pills for me called Dicyclomine 20mg. which also helped relieve the pain.
Avatar n tn I have a copper retention issue, but my biopsy was just under the threshold for a classic diagnosis. I treat with zinc, which keeps my copper levels low (but zinc causes nausea - but its better than the consequnces). At any rate, Wilson's is a treatable and manageable condition. IF detected early enough and if the variant is a slow progressing one, then your Sis could go on to live a full healthy life with med management.
Avatar m tn Ammonia and zinc levels are measured from blood samples. They must be asked for. They are not common blood test that are performed routinely. Ammonia is listed as Ammonia on my blood tests. The normal range is 7-35 UMOL/L. Since you have some blood work you may want to look at his Platelet count, INR, Bilirubin, and Creatinine. This can help give you an idea of your husband's liver ability to function. NOTE: Ammonia levels don't always correlate with HE. Or the Grade of HE.

1475202 tn?1536274577 Schiano, I have end stage cirrhosis (C) and I also deal with hepatic encephalopathy. My last lab test revealed my ammonia level to be 69. This has been greatly effecting me. I feel like im in a daze all day long. This morning I went into our spare bedroom to open curtains like I do quite often and I noticed a fancy shelf hanging on the wall next to the window. I dont remember ever seeing it before so when I asked my wife about it she told me it has been there since we moved in 4 years ago.
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 n tn I've just had to stop depakote cold because of ammonia buildup in my system. 19 - 60 is considered normal 1 week my ammonia level went from 68 to 93. True, this is rare, but just beware. You sound like you want to take charge of your health (you should see my files at the house...all that the doctors have). I know that the docs are doing their best, but let's get real...they do see more than one patient a month. Also, don't rely just on one doc. I use my pdoc and internest both.
Avatar m tn So, I am not a doctor, but one of the side effects I am reading about from Topamax is an increased ammonia level in the blood. Then I read that heightened ammonia in blood can lead to kidney stones, hair loss and confusion...all side effects of Topamax. So, my thinking is that adding water and maybe some milk thistle or other liver supporting supplements may help tip the balance back.
529981 tn?1212853666 I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair. I am a busy college student, who unfortunately does not have the time and money to deal with this.
1916673 tn?1420236870 One of these waste products is ammonia, which is extremely harmful. The liver produces urea, which is far less toxic, and this helps to transport ammonia safely through the blood to the kidneys and then out of the body. When BUN levels are elevated, it indicates the kidneys are unable to remove the excessive amount of urea being produced. Vets will ordinarily describe a dog being uremic or azotemic when this situation occurs.
Avatar n tn most of us with liver disease have had to be proactive with our own health. but you do need good management. are you using Lactulose to bring down the ammonia levels? you should be on a low fat, low protein diet i believe. no red meat. get educated online as best you can. google end stage liver disease and how to manage it.
1454997 tn?1285872073 The medications I'm on now are xifaxin, lactulose, spironolactone, furosemide, calcitriol, ursidiol, omeprazole, multivitamin, omega-3, and zinc. Oh, and cipro one tablet a week. My doctor doesn't want to put me on interferon because I'm genotype 1a and he thinks the new medicines about to be approved by the FDA would be better. I guess he want to keep me as a naive responder when I do take them. I was up for a transplant 18 month ago, but I improved and my viral count is about 300,000.

Avatar n tn It is different from an ammonia- like smell that might result from muscle (protein) breakdown. Ketone bodies are synthesized by the liver whenever fatty acid levels are high in the blood. Under normal conditions there are very few ketone bodies in the blood because they are chewed up as quickly as they are formed. Excess ketone bodies are made by the liver when blood glucose is kept persistently low or when glucose uptake into cells is not working efficiently.
Avatar m tn @TAPAKAH Zinc supplements exist. You can overload yourself with as much zinc as you want to see if it works. Please send me the link to the peer reviewed article where you read the relationship between masturbation and zinc because I’ve never heard of it. Zinc is known scientifically to kill certain strains of both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria so it helps our immunity in a way.

Avatar n tn Joan in Reus, Spain, in 1992 shows that supplementation of zinc lessens the effects of fibrogenesis in rats in induced cirrhosis. German research shows that zinc deficiencies are implicated in liver cirrhosis and conclude that zinc substitution should be provided to all cirrhosis patients when deficiency and corresponding symptoms are found. (Long-term supplementation of zinc should not exceed 90 mg a day.
Avatar f tn In addition, with cirrhosis, foods that are high in sodium and ammonia need to be avoided. Table 2 identifies ammonia- and sodium-containing foods. TABLE 2.
Avatar n tn often smelling like bowel and/or ammonia. While taking the antiobiotic treatment, I was hopeful that the smell would stop. It seemed to decrease (although it never completely stopped) during the treatment, but has now gotten worse again. Different foods tend to trigger worse episodes. I have been back to my doctor several times and they make me think that I am crazy or that they have never heard of this before. My last visit..

4862508 tn?1360799907 I could barely smell it as my sense of smell was very poor - a listed symptom of uremia but i also had zinc deficiency and hypothyroidism as well which affect sense of smell and taste. This was an strong ammonia odor. I was drinking a lot of water but rarely went to the bathroom and when i did the urine was completely clear. I developed tremors (i had tremors with magnesium deficiency but these tremors were more rapid), my pH dropped below 5.
Avatar f tn When I stop the lemon juice, I notice an ammonia smell in my stool within a couple days. From what I read, ammonia comes from being too alkaline.
Avatar n tn These include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT. Nicotine acts as a vasoconstrictor. That is, it constricts the arteries and blood vessels—including those that are responsible for a man's erection. Nicotine also lowers testosterone and other hormone levels in the blood. And it increases the concentrations of fatty acids in the blood, leading to clogged arteries and further restricting blood flow to the genitals.

Avatar n tn MSM is not recommended for anyone with a CBS gene mutation, (very low prevalence) as this will cause intolerance to sulfates or other forms of sulfur, resulting in excess ammonia and hydrogen sulfide. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn My dermatologist prescibed me Lac Hydrin (12% ammonia lactate) because my face was getting rough like sandpaper, and this has made my skin smooth. However, my skin is so thin, so when my skin feels smooth and freshly exfoliated, it also feels tight and thinner. He prescribed me metronidazole cream for the redness. I haven't noticed any effects.

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!
