Anyone have much experiance with the confusion and disorientation that comes from super-elevated ammonia levels? My husband was admitted to the hospital tonight, not making sense, confused, and belligerant. He didn't know how old he is or his birthday, and he couldn't open the front door because it was locked and he didn't know how to unlock it. His ammonia was at 135. He has HCC, cirrohsis, and Hep C. Is there anything they can do besides giving him more lactulose?
