How is Ammonia Test Performed?
Patients who require ammonia test are required to visit a pathology lab during a specific time of the day. Alternatively, a technician can also be arranged to visit the patient's house for sample collection.
Following steps are involved in performing ammonia test:
Patients are discharged to go home immediately after the test. There are no risks or complications involved with ammonia test. Patients may experience temporary pain and swelling in the area of arm from where blood sample is collected. A doctor should be contacted if these symptoms fail to subside.
Why is Ammonia Test Required?
Ammonia is a normal by-product of protein metabolism. It is synthesized when protein is broken down by digestive enzymes. In case of liver dysfunction, protein metabolism gets disturbed, leading to accumulation of excess ammonia. Disorders like liver cirrhosis, liver failure, fatty liver syndrome, hepatocellular carcinoma, are responsible for elevated levels of ammonia.
It is the function of kidneys to convert ammonia into urea and excrete it via urine. Kidney dysfunction is also responsible for disturbed levels of ammonia. Disorders like chronic renal failure, hydronephrosis, nephrotic syndrome, may alter blood ammonia levels.
Elevated levels of ammonia are apparent due to symptoms like weakness, dizziness, confusion, reduced mental capacity. Abnormal increase in levels of ammonia are evident by more serious symptoms like comatose condition, incoherent speech, etc.
Which Other Tests May be Advised with Ammonia Test?
Other tests which may be required along with ammonia test include liver function test, kidney function test, and scans of liver or kidney or both.
Abnormal results of ammonia test indicate serious underlying health issues and should be reported to a doctor immediately.
