hey everyone,

His Albumin Level = 1.6

His Bilirubin Level = 0.9

His Ammonia Level = 22

The doctor said that he is in this dementia state because of the protein levels not being high enough. Dr. Farrell (his doctor) said that he has to eat. They had a feeding tube in him but took it out. ??? :confused: Dr. Farrel said that he has to actively chew and swallow the food. My dad is refusing to eat because he is out of his head! Why do he have to actively chew and swallow when a feeding tube puts it in his stomach just the same. His albumin level is BAD. Has anyone been administered albumin serum to help improve the albumin protein level???

Thanks, Stacie
