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
