Hi I am sorry you are not feeling well. I don't think you have advanced liver disease, especially with your platelets being in the normal range. Have you taken a look at what you are eating to see if perhaps that is causing the gas, bloating? Have you been checked for any wheat allergies? I am only mentioning because my niece was diagnosed with gluten ...

I heard about this as well, he returned from Africa 10 days before he started feeling ill. In that time he went to many areas though they "say" he was not contagious until he started feeling sick.

I agree with you, the news has really run with this until it is 24/7 no one wonder people are scared when that is all they hear. I was pretty frightened thinking it would become the pandemic that has been forecast for years. After none of Mr Duncan's contacts got sick I realized my fears were out of control.

Hi flyinlynn and Magnum gave you great advice. The lactulose draws the ammonia into your intestines to be excreted which laxatives to not. I remember having this same question a couple of years ago when I was taking lactulose

Hi there, I once had the same question you have now. I believe that the lactulose reduces the ammonia in your gut and brain and that's why it is important to take, if the ammonia gets too high it can cause you to have problems thinking, driving, cooking etc. I am not as good as explaining things as Hector so I have taken one of his explanations and am ...
