Ammonia is a nitrogen waste compound that is normally excreted in the urine. The blood ammonia test detects the presence and concentration of ammonia in the blood. Abnormally high levels in the blood are most often caused due to liver disease or kidney failure, leading to the accumulation of ammonia in the bloodstream. It can lead to serious health problems, including brain damage, coma, and even death.
