HIGH AMMONIA BLOOD TEST LEVEL. What does higher than normal ammonia test level mean?

Upper limit of ammonia test is 65 μmol/L (or 110 μg/dL).

An ammonia test measures the amount of ammonia in the blood. Most ammonia in the body forms when protein is broken down by bacteria in the intestines. The ammonia is normally converted into urea by the liver. Urea is then eliminated in urine.

Ammonia levels in the blood are higher than normal when the liver is not able to convert ammonia to urea. This may be a sign of cirrhosis or severe hepatitis.
