What causes an ammonia smell on your body after you work out or walk 2+ miles?

Common in runners

Walking
Ammonia comes from the breakdown of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. It is made up of hydrogen and nitrogen . The body breaks down protein and converts it to glucose to use as fuel and nitrogen is the waist product. Nitrogen is usually converted to urea by the kidneys and excreted(pee'd) out. If the kidneys can't handle the load it is eliminated out the body through sweet.

What would cause ammonia smell on your body after you work out or walk 2+ miles?

Too Little Water

Water
You probably are not taking in enough water to make up for what you lose through sweating while exercise. Carry a water bottle with you and make sure you keep hydrated. If it persists with that, let your MD know - it could be a symptom of something else going on in your body.

There are several causes of bad smelling vaginal discharge and testing is needed to determine the cause and treatment. The most likely is bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. It causes a watery discharge with a fishy odor. It is not sexually transmitted and your partner does not require treatment. It is treated with antibiotics.

Ammonia like smell when deep breathing. And lightheadedness for 3 days all day without movement. No other symptoms. What could it be? Please.

Working out

Breathing
If you are working out too much or burning too much fat/protein due to diet or work out it may produce ketones that are breakdown products of fat/muscle. This can give the ammonia like odor. Starving can do it too. Some fat burning supplements can also do this. Make sure you have some basic blood work for kidney and liver function testing done, because it is not normal to have the symptoms you do.
