My fiance has stopped drinking over a year ago. We try very hard to watch sodium levels, fat, calories, etc. I was just reading about a mom with liver disease. does anyone know and can tell me what causes amonia levers to go up with cirrohiss of the liver and what can i do to prevent them. they are no fun. What are we doing wrong to prevent these amonia levels to go up? PLEASE WE NEED HELP.
Ammonia levels go up, when the liver and or kidney are no longer able to filter properly. High ammonia levels can be incredibly dangerous. I had a friend total a car when he blacked out from this. He was also in the midst of liver failure (85% cirrociss) due to a blood disorder.
