How long does alcohol stay in your urine I drank 12, 16oz beers. I am 5'11 and weigh 230#

How long does alcohol stay in your urine I drank 12, 16oz beers. I am 5'11 and weigh 230#

Let me help: Essentially, except with exceptionally heavy alcohol consumption, a urine alcohol test done 12-24 hour later would be negative. However, if the test includes the etg testing, this can detect recent alcohol use for 26-80 hours depending on which reference you believe.

I had two tall boy high gravity beers on saturday night, then went in for an etg on tuesday afternoon at about 5 pm. My urine was heavily diluted. Ok?

Is what ok?: I will document a dilute urine as a "refusal to submit to test". If that's ok, than its ok. Btw- etg results are usually given corrected for any apparent dilution.

Alcoholism: By definition, that quantity of beer consumption would put you in the category of alcoholism. You should definitively get evaluated and you need to stop drinking. Best wishes to you.

Got a drug test coming up april 11 did cocaine on march 28 drank couple beers think I will pass a urine test?

Hope so: Cocaine and its metabolites leave the system in a few days. You did your experimenting, you are safe now, and I hope you will not try this again; at any time, Cocaine may suddenly change your nervous system so you cannot be happy without it. Trust me -- this happens and happens often. Best wishes & I admire your courage.

I drank 3 beers about 33 hours ago and then drank 1 more beer 24 hrs ago. I had to take a urine analysis, will it show up positive for alcohol?

I drank 3 beers about 33 hours ago and then drank 1 more beer 24 hrs ago. I had to take a urine analysis, will it show up positive for alcohol?

No: If your last beer was 24 hours before your urinalysis, the alcohol should have been gone, assuming you were well-hydrated during this period. From now on, why not comply with your abstinence program? Anyone who pressures you to drink isn't your friend. You've got two health issues that make drinking a bad idea. And you won't have to worry.

What causes beer colored urine and severe pain behind ear and neck?

What causes beer colored urine and severe pain behind ear and neck?

See your doctor: I don't have a specific answer, but a funny reddish color to urine can indicate the presence of myoglobin, which is from red muscle that has been inflamed or destroyed. Don't know if the pain in your neck might be a muscle inflammation, but this combination of symptoms and signs is worrisome, and I would seek medical attention promptly and get whatever examination and lab tests are needed.
