What's the 'normal' ammonia count/level?

My husband, who has ESLD, hasn't had his labwork done in nearly a year. He isn't taking his lactulose, but drinks alcohol daily, so I know his ammonia level must be off the charts. Our dr. has never shared w/us what the 'norm' is for ammonia levels, or count, whatever they call it. Does it depend on weight or age? My husband is 61 @ about 250 lbs.

From what I found there are different norms for adults, children and infants.  The adult normal  for Adults is 15-45 micrograms per deciliter (mcg/dL) or 11-32 micromoles per liter (mcmol/L).

I hope this helps.
