Would 5 or 6 drinks consumed one time in 100 days read above the cut off levels for nail etg test?

Would 5 or 6 drinks consumed one time in 100 days read above the cut off levels for nail etg test?

I doubt it, no etg: Drinking on a single occasion should not spike etg levels, which are more accurate in detecting differences in low, medium and high levels of drinking on a regular basis. The study looked at diiferences between subects who drank from 10 to 30 drinks per week, and for those who drank at those levels, etg levels corresponded to the low, medium ang high level groups. ...Read more

ETG is a urine test: ETG is not done on hair but on urine. It is usually not positive five days after the last drink.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

What is an EtG test used for?

What is an EtG test used for?

Detect alcohol use: Ethyl glucuronide and ethyl sulfate are metabolites of alcohol that can persist for several days rather than only several hours, as the actual blood alcohol concentration (BAC) does. It can detect drinking in as much as a 72 hour window. So, an individual who is not supposed to be drinking may have zero BAC, but an EtG of several hundred to several thousand if they drank the day before. ...Read more

Will kimchi affect an EtG test?

Will kimchi affect an EtG test?

Not that I know of: I am not aware of any versions of kimchi that would contain active amounts of ethanol. Ethyl glucuronide is highly specific for ethanol, and unless your version is being made with cooking wine or some other form of beverage alcohol, I would not expect EtG to be positive. ...Read more

When does someone need an EtG test?

When does someone need an EtG test?

It depends: While not perfect, it provides an opportunity for your provider to assess whether you've consumed much alcohol in the past two weeks or so. Depending on lab cutoffs and the concentration of the urine the doctor can have a good guess whether you might be using more alcohol than is good for you. Alcohol related health issues are quite common. I find this test underutilized. ...Read more

Is it possible to fail ETG test after 80 hours?

Yes: No test is 100% specific and sensitive. Though you would likely pass it if you haven't drank in >80 hours positive EtG tests can result from the use of hand sanitizers, medications, hygiene products, cosmetics, foods and other products that contain even small levels of alcohol.

People can test positive for alcohol consumption after being exposed to laundry detergent, antiperspirant, aftershave. . ...Read more

Will I pass a etg test after not drinking for 80 hours?

Will I pass a etg test after not drinking for 80 hours?

EtG test: Probably not. However, the test is highly unreliable and is associated with so many false positives from so many common household products that a positive test cannot be considered proof of ethanol consumption due only to "drinking." imo, it should not be used to screen as proof of intentional alcohol consumption.

Likely: Etg is generally positive for about 80 hours after the last drink.
Now that you had not had alcohol for about 5 days, do yourself a favor and stay off it. Alcohol is a poison and it never did any body any good, ever.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

What medical conditions could cause abnormal creatinine levels in an etg test?

What medical conditions could cause abnormal creatinine levels in an etg test?

How high?: When I was lifting weights every day, my creatinine was usually 1.7 mg/dl, and elite bodybuilders have up to 2.0 or so. This is perfectly healthy. Simply being dehydrated or popping a little too much Motrin can up the creatinine enough to get noticed, or serious kidney disease can be the cause. Don't treat a lab value -- your physician can determine the big picture. ...Read more

I had 2 beers Friday night around 1 am not sure how many oz I have an etg test in the morning do I have chances of passing?

Unlikely: If you are being tested for EtG, I assume that it means there has been some form of alcohol/other drug problem in your life, or you are in a safety-sensitive position where alcohol is not allowed. In any case 2 beers will give you a positive EtG for up to 48 hours, depending on where their cut-off is (typically 50 ng/ml but some think it should be 250ng/ml or even 500 ng/ml). Get help w stopping. ...Read more

Genetics: We all have differences from each other due to genetics, including gender and nutrition. The rates at which various chemicals, including alcohol, are metabolized, vary among people and explains how long after the last drink etg may be detectable.

How is an etg test related to blood testing?

Don't understand?: "Blood testing" is a nonspecific term. Thousands of different determinations can be made on blood samples, from complete blood counts to blood sugars, electrolytes, liver function tests, kidney tests and many many others. Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is usually tested in urine but can be tested in blood, and is a long-acting metabolite of alcohol that can determine drinking over days rather than hours. ...Read more
