Elevated ammonia levels
I want to know what number is considered a high ammonia level. I just had a test done and l was told my number was 59. The nurse called and said ammonia levels were elevated. I had the test done because when l went shopping l couldn't walk and l was so dizzy. I try to pretend everything was ok because l get so embarrassed when l fall. Then when l got out the store l.had a hard time walking so l didn't want to drive right away so l waited and then l drove home. When l got home l had a hard time walking to the house but if l fell at home it would be ok. No one would be looking. I hurried up to get something to eat and drink but l didn't think l was dehydrated because before l left l had ate and drank. Then l went to sleep which always happen when l get like that. When l told the doctor that is when l asked to have my ammonia levels checked since a hepatologist doctor told me to discontinue my lactulose now my doctor has put me back on it. And now my upper stomach under my rib cage is hurting, l feel like l am going to threw up and my upper and lower stomach is swollen so l just want to know if anyone had that problem and if it means your levels are high. I just started back on my lactulose. So if anyone had or have that problem will you please tell me your experience.
