I’m sorry to hear of your husband’s troubles. Is he currently taking Lactulose or anything to manage ammonia production? The Lactulose will be the sticky-sweet liquid that gives him the runs? He may need to have that adjusted, or possibly have another drug added to that regimen.
really good answer bill. i had that problem, actualy my ammonia levels got so high last year as to through me into a coma. i had no idea because it comes on gradualy and your ability to identify the problem lessens as the level of ammonia rises. i just happen to be lucky and somone found me very quickly. after my return, i was brought to tears because i couldn't finish the daily crossword . llakey keep an eye out for little signs. also be aware of potassium, to much can be toxic. i only know this by living it. you must be your best advocate when it comes to your or partners health. cece
