I have a Aunt that...
I have a Aunt that has the chirrios of the liver. She used to be a bad alcoholic years ago and now over the past couple of years she started drinking again. She's in her 70's. The doctor's cannot figure out why she seems to be in a brain fog because her blood work seems to be showing normal.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
the b-vitamin but from what I am told the blood work is checking out. But she doesn't seem to be thinking straight.
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

what was the ammonia level?

what meds is she on?

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I don't know the medicine she is on but do you think it could be a side effect?
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

Absolutely

that is the most likely cause

especially if she is taking a benzo like xanax or something for sleep like ambien

see if you can find out the list

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
