From this study (1 week ago):
I have been struggling with sinusitis for almost 2 years now and they can't stop the dripping my nose from running,down throat to chest, lots of plegm, and have been congested for over a year and half. Since then, have tried me on every sort of antihistimine, Loradine, Zyrtec, Certirizine, and fluticasone spray, which didn't stop running/congestion. Been to ER three times to get on antibiotics since also caused gum disease/gingivitis per Periodontus who states it's underlying medical not dental. Also started taking regular OTC sudafed for congestion, and occasional cough/congestion. Now allergist says my IgG Immoglobins are high and was told that since I have constant bacterial infections. Allergist believes running nose/congestion is from a fungus infection or vasomotor rhinitis and need culture. Am waiting to see ENT. Prior to this last 2 years, my sinus was always controlled and maybe every year to two years, an infection occurred and antibiotics quickly got rid of it, but not this time. I read infections could also cause liver enzymes to rise to and my past blood tests in 2008 shows only had a mild increase in SGPT ALT only. Prior use, I used pain pills, vicodin/codeine/darvocet/, but stay away from then now due to liver enzymes in ALT rising, and only use motrin, sleeping med., cymbalta and occasional fioricet. Had gall bladder infected and removed, and tests show fatty liver and slight kidney lesion, but not enough for them to do anything.
help on Apr, 9, 2014:
F, 48, fibromylagia, chronic sinusitis, repeated infections, which believe long-term pain meds cause elevated liver enzymes, went off most, and now because of constant trying of allergy meds, and can't stop running nose, long term infections of bacteria and possibly fungus, so not sure what is causing elevated enzymes.

For about 6 weeks I have had these symptoms. After much internet research
I feel as though I am histamine intolerant. I have been on a low histamine
diet for 4 weeks. I have seen an improvement. I have tried daosin supplement
once..did not help much. Plan on taking 2 capsules next. This is pretty miserable(symptoms,diet and bad constipation issues; taking Fibercon) ALSO, have discovered I am reacting to food dyes and supplements.
From this study (2 months ago):
Was taken to the hospital by daughter because of dementia type symptoms while on pain meds for back and being a heavy smoker. Was diagnosed in the hospital with COPD and aspiration pneumonia. Was put on Bi-pap machine but confusion symptoms did not improve. Ammonia levels were checked and were in the 70's. My liver was checked and was fine. Was given Lactulose and symptoms improved every day. After being released from the hospital with new meds, smoke cessation, and ammonia levels in the 20's.. 5 days later my daughter took me back because of more confusion symptoms. Ammonia levels were back up to 45 and they gave me more lactulose to take home to use and symptoms have improved. So at this point it seems my COPD is under control but I am constantly worried about my ammonia levels increasing. I dont want to over take any lactulose because I dont want to mess up my potassium levels. So what's causing the ammonia to increase??
