80 year old, liver cancer & pancreatic cancer patient is on lactulose due to the ammonia buildup in her system--due to liver not being able to function fully. is taking lactulose--which is successfully keeping her lucid and out of the hospital. However, we cannot find anything which suggests which--if any--need to be avoided, or if there are foods which are recommended. thank you
Dear KarinSammers, To start with I`am sorry for the Pain your Family going through. The best I can say.Stay away from Fried Food.MEAT of all breeds ect..Pork, Beef. Steamed food is going to be your best way to go,Asparagus,Cauliflower,Broc, . "You can ask about AMITIZA."They don`t call Lactu-lose for nothing" Amitiza helps with not using Bed Pans as much. Yes when ammonia levels are high "we do get mean & out of are mind",but I do miss them.)<: Rest In Peace;Dad Foster64 2002,Sarg.Sanders71 2010,Mom F.Sanders65 2011.
Ps.I`ll Keep U in my Prays & if u would say one 4 Me,now that I face this journey.Liver Sincerely,Randall 2
