Avatar f tn A previous blood test done earlier this year with my primary doctor only showed an elevated liver function which is why I visited the gastro in the first place. No word of high ammonia levels till now. The only difference is i started drinking protein shakes in the morning for breakfast. Could this have anything to do with it? what other causes could their be?
Avatar f tn For the last year and a half I have been experiencing a strong ammonia body odor to a weird meat odor. I am a 31 year old male that works out 4x per week. I've read post where some ppl experience this same issue when they are working out, however this issue is constantly surrounding me. I eat a well balanced diet with a lot of vegetables, carbs, and lean meat. I've been to several doctors and had numerous of test completed in the last year and a half and they all seem to have no answers.
Avatar n tn I'm a 52 year old woman in excellent health except for this problem that began Aug. 2004 after vacation in Mexico. It started with an ache in my left side below rib cage & change in bowel movements. I am frequently constipated, crampy in lower abdomen, sore in upper abdomen & every bm has a lot of mucus. In the last 3 months, the condition worsened & now I have excessive gas, bloating & 3-6 bm's per day, usually within 15-30 minutes after eating.
Avatar n tn She had blood drawn again Wednesday and besides a bladder infection (which is causing her to have blood in her urine) her ammonia level is high again. From what I have read, this can be caused by the deterioration of her liver. At what stage are we at now? Can this problem be controlled? What else if anything can we do? She has been treated previously for esophogeal varicies and abdominal acetes(sp). I don't know how much more she can take.
Avatar n tn Other causes include an infection of the bladder or the kidney resulting in excessive discharge of WBCs in the urine. The odor of penicillin is somewhat mousy as it is derived from a fungus. Sometimes, dehydration or an infection can cause the quantity of ammonia in urine to increase and this can increase the odor of urine. You will need to have a urinalysis done to check for any bacteria or abnormalities in urine. Further management depends on the results of the urinalysis.
1472092 tn?1286842470 It smells like someone dumped ammonia in his diaper (he has asperger's and has decided diapers are his thing for now). For the past 2 weeks he's CONSTANTLY thirsty. He doesn't go without a cup in his hand, he is ALWAYS thirsty. The past week he's been complaining about his tummy hurting and the light hurting his eyeballs.
Avatar n tn He said that they get negative results in blood and urine until about the 4th month before it starts to show positive. That kinda gave me some hope there. So, I guess as long as we don't see no blood whatsoever, that's a positive sign in itself that pregnancy is a possibility!! Let's keep the faith yall!
Avatar n tn Other causes in the absence of STD’s may include excessive sweating,lost tampon in the vagina,lodged condom and sometimes ureterovaginal fistula and cancers of cervix or vagina. Ureterovaginal fistula is a communication between the distal ureter and the vagina. The urine from the ureter bypasses the bladder and flows into the vagina. Please discuss these options with your gynecologist.
Avatar n tn Thanks for everyone's posting on progress with Vitamin B. I'll consider trying. My warm leg sensations began after weeks and weeks of a left side, temple area headache. I've been on antidepress for a 6 weeks and the warm leg sensations have subsided by the headache continues unabated. Not terribly bad but mostly present 4-5 days of the week. Can't get rid of this headache. Seems like almost a "hangover" headache. (but, haven't had a drop since last September!).
Avatar n tn same here for months now started with flu like them to lungs, thought I was better after 12 weeks of flu, then the smells in my nose, sinus, lungs?..HORRID and some are very distinct and also some are multiple, some are triggered by certain smells, sometime I smell smoke, exhaust, rancid, just hard to explain, it drives me crazy! ]And my nose will burn also my lips. nothing really smells like it should and most things smell horrible, taste too....
Avatar f tn Thet admit him and automatically start an antibiotic till they run test to see if he has an infection and the amonia level comes down in the 30 to 40 range. After a few days and all test come back and no infection they remove the IV antibiotics. With in a week it shoots back up. He is taking lactolose and Xifaxin, amongst other water pills does anyone know why the IV antibiotics bring the ammonia down?
Avatar m tn good hydration is essential to carry toxins from your blood (ammonia, urea) which are byproducts of digestion of protiens, out in the form of urine. You notice how when you drink a lot of water your pee is lighter? thats because it is less concentrated with urea.unnecsasry toxins in the blood can make you tierd and not feel well decreasing your desire to excercise.
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.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Unexplained anemia and blood in the urine are also good reasons for undertaking this test. There are rare events that can lead to the platelet count being high and these include a fracture, cancer, blood vessel injury and inflammation of the digestive tract, pancreas or liver. When a pet has Cushing’s disease, platelets can increase due to raised cortisol levels. In most cases seen by vets, the platelet count is low – and there are multiple reasons why this might occur.
Avatar m tn This time, my penis has an inflammation. Turns red and burns a lot at times like that of ammonia which is present in bleaching creams, especially when my penis gets erect or if there was a precum the burning sensation is high the next day. Foreskin lost its elasticity, it is tough to roll back and the tip of my penis head seems swollen a bit and burning starts from the place under penis head on the shaft where the foreskin stops and forms a thick ring.
4043517 tn?1374010173 Today after progress I lost my balance, grabbed the rail on the front porch to steady myself but kept falling. Went backwards, hit my head on a brick, broke at least one toe, soaked in Epsom salts, bloody and foot swollen, butt and side throbbing, goose egg on my elbow. Confused. **** this hurts. Back to like my bike wreck. I feel so awful right now. **** **** ****. Thought I had this under control. Apparently not. My foot hurts so bad. My head is swollen.
Avatar m tn This then leaves the blood uncleaned of harmful substances, including ammonia. The function of the liver to convert ammonia in blood may also be decreased in liver disease. Ammonia and other harmful substances may go into the brain and damage brain cells. This may affect many of the brain's important functions that could cause even more problems to your body.

Avatar n tn I'm thinking that if for example, urine comes in contact with your skin and it is just dried off, there still is urine left behind and so I found that by wiping with water (tissue is NOT ENOUGH), THE SMELL AND DISCHARGE DECREASED CONSIDERABLY. ...more later as I experiment with what works and what doesn't. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Drugs the patient is taking, normally filtered out and disposed of in urine, may remain in the bloodstream for a much longer period and act longer than expected or even build up in body tissue. A liver with cirrhosis is usually much larger than a healthy liver Precautions and Prevention Once cirrhosis has been diagnosed, sodium and fluids should be restricted, and all alcohol consumption must cease. Antiemetics, diuretics, and supplemental vitamins are prescribed.
Avatar n tn Maybe in the workup for this other possiblities can be found or ruled out. I would suggest lactate, pyruvate, ammonia, serum amino acids, urine organic acids, and carnitine levels.
468408 tn?1208436609 the rest of the vitamins can and will be excreted in the urine if the body does not need them...that is why it is a good idea not to take 3 at once but to spread it out over the day so that the body can absorb it, otherwise you have wasted them into the toilet...aminos are protein molecules and is some work on the kidneys to excrete as are big molecules...

Avatar f tn mannito/lactulose test or PEG There are other possibilities, like low stomach acid, low enzymes, H. Pylori infection, ammonia toxicity in the G/I system, Candida, kidney and/liver dysfunction,magnesium deficiency and many more, however most of these are inter-connected to each other and to leaky gut as well. I'm certain that some of the above have not been ruled out, or the testing was inadequate/flawed.
