- Ammonium is only occasionally taken in and then almost completely synthesized in liver to urea.
- Only traces of salts escape synthesis and circulate in blood.
- Role in phase of excretion.
- Buffering of urine with a sparing of alkali.
- Its liberated in decomposition accompanying muscle and nerve activity.
- This process is irreversible and results in weakening and paralyzing effects of muscles and nerves under the influence of ammonia.
- Ammonia develops in erythrocytosis.
- Excess of metabolic end product damage the erythrocytes.
- Excess of ammonia is expelled through respiratory system, involvement of mucous membrane of respiratory passages is important.
