    I can tell you that ammonia causes encephalopathy and can occur in any acute or chronic liver disease. Now brain fog is subtle term to use for for grade1-2

      Thanks Doc....is normal brain fog caused by ammonia build up in the
      brain or is it completely different from encephalopathy? And is
      encephalopathy only present in advanced liver disease?
