can gestational diabetes untreated cause false positive for any drugs or drug at delivery?

Pregnancy: Nope. Not at all. This is a bizarre question. Diabetes or gestational diabetes is a medical condition of sugar troubles. It in no way causes one to test positive for alcohol or other drugs in any way.

No: Untreated gdm increases glucose levels. Glucose should not cause a false positive drug test.
