My son just tested high in Ammonia. Would like to know people's experience, thoughts etc. I heard calcium butrate by Ecological Formlue is used.

JCarl,

Hubby tried that, but it did not do much of anything. For him what worked was oral levaquin. We found out that his initial 2 months of IV Rocephin had messed up his G.I. bacteria despite taking VSL#3 and other probiotics. He had elevated antibodies to klebsiella and enterobactor I think it was and maybe another bad G.I. bug. Those pathogens create ammonia.

I do not really believe the theory that lyme creates elevated ammonia.

The first month of oral levaquin at that time got rid of the symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy which had been present for 3 or 4 months I think it was. That was his first bart treatment and the total of 3 months of oral levaquin at that time did not really do anything for the bart symptoms.

What ever happened with your son's babesia treatment?

Dr. Yasko's protocol for ammonia is:

Yucca Root powder, sprinkled on high protein foods
Charcoal/Magnesium flushes once a week

Address any methylation SNP's that reduce BH4 (NOS, MTHFR A1298C) or increase ammonia (CBS).

jcarl,

At the ILADS conference - one question from the audience was "Do you reduce the doses of antibiotics when doing HBOT?"

The couple of docs that responded on the panel basically said no. But the doc from New York did mention that a patient with babs had a worsening of babesia after doing HBOT. None of the other docs claimed that was a problem, but not sure how many of them actually had many patients using the therapy.

How is your son doing and what babs treatment is he on now?
