Ammonia Blood EDTA-P – Dry Ice (Test Code 5109)

An ammonia blood test measures the amount of ammonia in the blood. In most cases, ammonia in the body forms when protein is broken down by bacteria in the intestines. The livers role is then to normally convert ammonia into urea, which is then eliminated in urine. Ammonia levels generally rise when the ammonia is not being converted to urea which can cause a number of health issues if left untreated.
