Circulating ammonia in normal individuals is relatively low, despite the fact that ammonia is continuously produced from dietary and amino acid metabolism. Blood ammonia measurements have been used in the diagnosis of coma associated with hepatic dysfunction caused by cirrhosis and neoplasms. The measurement of ammonia is very useful in the diagnosis and prognosis of Reye's Syndrome.
