What is Ammonia assay used for?
Several diseases, both inherited and acquired can result in significantly elevated levels of ammonia in the blood (hyperammonemia).
Reye’s syndrome, an acquired hyperammonemia disease, is characterized by high levels of ammonia and decreased levels of glucose. As such, ammonia is usually tested alongside glucose, electrolytes, kidney and liver function tests in adolescents and children showing symptoms.
High levels of ammonia in the blood are also associated with both liver disease and renal failure. Elevated ammonia is toxic to the central nervous system.
