ETG test: Is there a list of pers. care ingredients that cause/yield incidental exposure to alcohol or its breakdown products? Is Phenoxyethanol one?

ETG test: Is there a list of pers. care ingredients  that cause/yield incidental exposure to alcohol or its breakdown products? Is Phenoxyethanol one?

Don't know of a list: but phenoxyethanol would not be on it in any case. Ethanol is NOT absorbed through intact skin, and in this product, the ethanol is complexed with a benzene ring that does not allow it to become free. Only alcohol containing mouthwashes that are swallowed, and skin sanitizers that are inhaled can cause positive ETGs. If a sensible cut-off (250-500 ng/ml) is used, this eliminates most of them. ...Read more

I take a etg test 2x a week.I tested positive for alcohol 1x a week for 3 weeks in a row.Gcms neg. Can cetearyl alcohol cause a positive on a etg test?

False positive ETG: Ethyl gluglucuronide (etg) is a breakdown product of ethyl alcohol. It is a good test used to confirm sobriety because it is present in urine much longer than ethanol. Although it is most sensitive for ethyl alcohol, the test can produce a positive result if sufficient amount of other alcohols are consumed/absorbed which are also broken down by the body into ethanol and then into etg. ...Read more

Does using furosemide have any benefit in passing an etg alcohol urine test?

No: Taking Furosemide will increase the sodium, chloride, potassium in your urine as well as the amount of urine you make. To increase the amount of urine you make to the point that you dilute the concentration of alcholol in your urine would be dangerous and would risk serious dehydration as well as electrolyte losses. ...Read more

I had a dui now I am required to go to group therapy do they test you for alcohol by etg or just 8 panel adams county pa?

I had a dui now I am required to go to group therapy do they test you for alcohol by etg or just 8 panel adams county pa?

Since only reason: to ask that is to try to beat it, an ethical physician's job is not to help you continue to hurt yourself. I have no idea what different programs in different areas use. You seem to think that it is more important to fool others than to face the fact that you are clearly developing a significant problem with alcohol. People with first DUI's have usually drunk and drove dozens of times before. ...Read more

Will the sugar alcohol found in sugar free gums, sodas, sugar substitutes produce a false positive on an etg test?

Will the sugar alcohol found in sugar free gums, sodas, sugar substitutes produce a false positive on an etg test?

No: There isn't anything in sugar substitutes that will cause the etg (ethyl glucuronide) test to show positive. However, because etg test measures products of metabolism of ethyl alcohol from any source, it is sensitive to small amounts of alcohol. It will detect ingestion or exposure to alcohol in mouthwash, cough syrup and other medicated syrups, and possibly even hand sanitizers. ...Read more
