Most : Most urine monitoring tests for alcohol are based upon detection of ethylglucuronide (etg), which reportedly reveals alcohol use up to three-and-a-half days from the time of the urine collection. It is used to monitor alcohol consumption in individuals who are legally prohibited from drinking alcohol by the justice system or restricted from drinking by their employers. However the test is controversial in that it may in fact, be too sensitive and led some to question the accuracy of the etg test with concern over the possibility of false positives often individuals ingest alcohol innocently, this is called incidental alcohol exposure, from foods (including desserts) cooked with or containing alcoholic beverages, foods containing significant amounts of vanilla extract, wine vinegar, soy sauce, mouthwashes containing alcohol, over the counter medications including cough syrup, prescription drugs containing ethanol (caplets, elixirs, etc), â€œalcohol-freeâ€ beer and wine, skin exposure to ethanol where vapor can be inhaled, hand sanitizers containing high concentrations of ethanol, deodorant sprays, cosmetics, insecticides substance abuse and mental health services administration's recommendation is: "currently, the use of an etg test in determining abstinence lacks sufficient proven specificity for use as primary or sole evidence that an individual prohibited from drinking, in a criminal justice or a regulatory compliance context, has truly been drinking. Legal or disciplinary action based solely on a positive etg ... Is inappropriate and scientifically unsupportable at this time. These tests should currently be considered as potential valuable clinical tools, but their use in forensic settings is premature." given that fermentation of orange juice or use of vanilla in the honey BUN may have contributed to the test result, i suspect that you will have grounds to question the validity of the test results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I drank alcohol last night . And I have a blood test today what can I do for it not to show in my results?
Depends: Entirely depends on how much you drank and how many hours between your blood test and your last drink. You need about 1-1.5 hours to burn off a standard drink.

Will drinking coffee during the early part of pregnancy cause any problems? I had daily coffee before i found out i was pregnant.
I accidentally took a 60 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and I have never taken one before. I have to take either a 12 or 15 panel urine test and possibly a mouth swab. How long before I can pass these?
Accidentally? Hmmm.: The effects on your body may be gone in 24 hours, but your urine screen for amphetamines (AMPH) may be positive for 3-5 days at least. It depends on your size, health, metabolism, renal function, etc. Some unlucky folks have positive screens a week after a single dose. AMPH raise blood pressure & heart rate; they also interact with alcohol & many drugs. Not the best drug to divert at age 43. ...Read more

No! Fasting of?Value: Fasting for most issues not only of low value but often misleading. Ex.: people commonly told to fast before blood glucose test; yet Diabetes Mellitus=elevated blood glucose & glucose most commonly elevated after eating. Thus fasting glucose routinely misses Diabetes Mellitus. Fasting is promoted for only a few issues because how databases were done or because the values are calculated/estimated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi doctor! I have question that i drank aloe vera juice before i found out i'm 8 weeks pregnant. And i worried if it can harm the fetus?
Yes, in moderation: Hepatitis a is cleared by the body and does not cause long term liver damage. Once you have it you will not get infected again. Once your liver enzymes have returned to normal it is ok to use alcohol. Use it in moderation not because of the hepatitis a, but because more than 3 drinks a day in men, or binge drinking, can lead to liver damage itself. ...Read more

I am a fitness freak and recently I have bought creatine hcl. I have never taken it before and was wondering if it could be dangerous in any way ?
How do you : Rationalize that you are concerned about your "fitness" and yet you have purchased something that you don't know what it is, what it's supposed to do, how you're going to tell if it's working, or what harm it could cause you? Don't pour supplements, potions, and possible poisons into your body. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. ...Read more
