Free ammonia in drinking water

Common Questions and Answers about Free ammonia in drinking water


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 m tn I have had a constant pain in my left side since 2010 and I think it was from being exposed to something called Corexit that was in the water in my area when I was trying to save sea life from the BP oil spill.I didnt know anything about it till a couple years ago when I was searching for things in my area that matched my symptoms but if I bring it up I get looked at like Im crazy.
Avatar n tn Any older inhalers feel free to chime in with your symptoms. If you are young and old please try and quit. Talk to your doctor and have our vitamin levels checked. This can really help pinpoint the issue and lead you to the road to recovery.
Avatar m tn It's hard on the lungs, is linked to cancer and is proably unhealthy in drinking water, bath water and in hot tubs. Essentially, it's a poison that we put in out drinking water and wash water to kill and retard bacteria growth. Your practice doesn't sound safe to me. The long term effects may outshine any perceived short term benefits. Not to change the topic.....
192055 tn?1263559137 The bleeding is like a pinhole in a water pipe. It's not red blood. It's liquid that leaks for a long period of time and accumulates in the throat because it's the natural way to flow. In the evening before I go to bed, I take a drop of cooking oil and dab it inside the nostrils. One drop each. That coats them and keeps any leak, stopping them. Plus, it loosens the mucus in a dry nose and clears the way. 2.
Avatar m tn It started about a year ago and for the longest time I thought maybe it was the water I was drinking at work, or the dust in my office. When the odor is triggered it does smell like mold or dust to me, so my best guess was dust. For a while it was happening maybe 2 to 3 times a week and the odor would last for a full day until I slept. Lately it's been less frequent. It happened yesterday and finally prompted me to do some searching online and that's how I came across this forum.
320576 tn?1204087293 He has always been a drinking man until he had a seizure in Sept and they said it was because of his drinking, so he quit....that was it. They also found that his liver enzymes were elevated and eventually diagnosed Hep C. here we are in Feb and he acts like nothing has happened. He has also started drinking again. He knows I dont approve, so he is hiding it.
Avatar f tn Bile is produced in the liver and aids in digesting fats. Normally, it travels down the bile duct and some of it gets stored in the gallbladder to be ready to dispense in the sudden presence of a fatty meal. If too much bile gets dumped into the small intestine - as in people or dogs who have had their gallbladders removed - explosive diarrhea can result. Bile is also what gives feces its brown color. If a dog's stool is light tan, that means bile is not getting into the small intestine.

Avatar f tn I havent been on this site in a while. I've been going through my own internal hell and didnt want to make everyone else miserable. Well, I got my last injection this morning and will take my last pills tonight. Feeling a bit strange and cant quite put my finger on it. Now, the waiting game begins. I've died my hair and didnt even care if it all fell out. I was lucky that it hasnt so far, but couldnt take that gray any longer. If it falls out, hell I will just be bald with big earrings.
Avatar n tn Up to this point, the sensation has only been on the inner right thigh...occasionally, slightly lower around the inside of the knee and slightly below it. What really scares me is the fact that I cannot financially afford to go get it checked out. As I told a friend, I'll probably have to wait until it becomes an emergency and head for the emergency room. He said if it's a clot and it becomes an "emergency", it might be too late to head to the hospital.
Avatar n tn Just recently and after being smoke free for a couple weeks, I was shopping in a department store and it began again for me. Sure enough, I looked down and saw a shiny floor and realized that this floor to gets waxed and stripped! And so you know........... once you are exposed, the smell does not disappear once you leave the area. For both me and my co-worker, it can remain in your system for up to 2 days before it completely disappears.
Avatar n tn (You see this coming, don't you?) I think our well water has a fair amount of bacteria in it. Anyway, I got myself a bacterial infection a couple of times, wasn't until this last episode that the light came on in my head. I was told that this was a deep well, and I thought it was safe, but got to thinking about it, and stopped using tap water, and got purified water to use, and that helped. Anyway, got that part figured out, what a relief to at least give my system some kind of a chance.
208764 tn?1249433257 The Niagara Falls, New York water treatment plant first used chlorine dioxide for drinking water treatment in 1944 for phenol destruction. Chlorine dioxide was introduced as a drinking water disinfectant on a large scale in 1956, when Brussels, Belgium, changed from chlorine to chlorine dioxide. Its most common use in water treatment is as a pre-oxidant prior to chlorination of drinking water to destroy natural water impurities that produce trihalomethanes on exposure to free chlorine.

1008841 tn?1293602560 So far, more than 2,100 toxic chemicals of the more than 75,000 patented chemical compounds in use today have been detected in America's water systems. Some of the most common toxins in tap water from the condensed EPA's safe water guidelines are listed below
1130715 tn?1262104030 The presence of ammonia in the gut causes water to be drawn into the lower bowel, which causes an increase in the water content and volume of the stools, therefore relieving constipation. Lactulose is also used in higher doses to help reduce a complication associated with liver disease called hepatic encephalopathy. In this condition, there is a build up of a chemical called ammonia in the blood, as the liver is not able to convert it into a safe chemical.
Avatar f tn My Father is a recovering alcoholic...but...all his years of drinking is causing major problems for him. He has cirrhosis of the Liver and Hep-C. The doctors are telling him that he has end stage live disease and gave him six months to a year to live unless he gets a transplant. We are at five months now and he is experiencing some really bad symptoms... He throws up numerous times a day and wants to sleep a lot. And over the weekend we had to go to the ER b/c he was acting very strange.
1475202 tn?1536274577 The body makes ammonia to help break down the bateria in the intestines. This ammonia is normally ejected from the body in the urine after the liver has filtered it from the blood stream. When the liver is cirrhotic it can no longer effectivly do this allowing the ammonia to tthen pass through every organ in the patients body. Causeing very small amounts of damage to every organ it goes through. This also goes to the brain causing another disease which is called Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE).
4043517 tn?1374010173 At 8pm 2/16/14 I started my quest to kill this insidious virus that has been running free since 1974-75 busily turning my health blood infused liver into a solid chunk of overdried pemmican where blood flow is suppressed and fibrous bridges and walls impede the journey of cleansing toxins from my body.
Avatar f tn Yes, I am hoping when she moves in with me I can get her to stop drinking as she drinks when she is depressed because she lives alone is a widow and has no children. She is 61.
Avatar m tn Encephalopathy (confusion) A liver that is working poorly may not be able to get rid of toxic substances like ammonia (which comes from the intestines), and it may allow these substances to go into the brain and cause confusion. Besides confusion, toxins in the brain cause changes in your sleep, your mood, your concentration, and your memory. If it gets really bad, it can even cause a coma. These are all symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Most everything can be washed in cold water (better for your bills and the environment). But use the hottest water possible for sheets, towels and underwear. Take special care with undergarments, putting them in the dryer as soon as possible to stop bacteria growth while they sit damp in the washer. Mess-a-Laneous Time It: If you actually time how long it takes to do certain chores, you won't mind them as much, says Cilley. Believe it or not, most chores only take 10 minutes.
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 (There is chlorine in our drinking water and home showers). Just don't drink the pool water(!--at least not too many swallows) and enjoy the wonderful cardio benefits. I myself have started up swimming again after getting all the answers I wanted.
Avatar n tn does this mean he has Hepatitis C? My husband does and never treated for it and unfortunately he drank. He quit drinking in February after he became near comatose from a build up of ammonia in his system. He is now on Lactulose daily to control the amount of ammonia in his body and on a low protein diet. His liver disease has progressed to the point that his liver can no longer break protein down into ammonia and then further down into urea to be removed by the kidneys.
1028452 tn?1537452084 When added to the diet, Yucca Saponins pass the ammonia through the digestive tract unabsorbed and are then excreted in the feces. Yucca is also used in some dog foods to reduce the odor in their urine and bowel movements.

Avatar m tn Don’t submerge the top of the squeeze bottle in the hot tap water, because water from your hot water heater has things you don’t want to know about. When the bottle is warm, put it in your shower . Turn on your shower as hot as is comfortable and jump in. The heat and the steam will loosen the mucus in your nose and nasal cavity.
