From what I've read ammonia levels can affect people differently. Based on my small amount of knowledge, I would say that 78 is medium high, and you may be experiencing some cognitive symptoms, perhaps some confusion, forgetfulness, or irritability.What is the normal range of ammonia in blood?
Normal Range of Ammonia Levels Adults: The normal range of ammonia level in adults is 8 to 35 mcmol/L (micromoles per liter) or 9.5 to 50 mcg/dL (micrograms per deciliter). Children: The normal range of ammonia level in children is 28 to 58 mcmol/L or 41 to 80 mcg/dL.What is the OSHA TWA for ammonia?
OSHA has established an ammonia Permissible Exposure Level (PEL) of 50 ppm as an 8-hr time-weighted average (TWA). The ACGIH recommends an 8-hr TLV-TWA of 25 ppm. Ammonia levels should be controlled through process enclosure and the use of local exhaust and dilution ventilation, as necessary.What happens if your ammonia level is too high?
If left untreated, elevated blood ammonia can affect brain tissue, leading to symptoms such as confusion and delirium (rapid change in cognitive function). An elevated blood ammonia level may also be related to drug or alcohol abuse. Treatment for an elevated blood ammonia level varies depending on the cause.
