How long of abstinence from alcohol will give a normal CDT test level. I need this to regain my driving licence?

How long of abstinence from alcohol will give a normal CDT test level. I need this to regain my driving licence?

NinetyDaysToFreedom: The half-life of Carbohydrate-Deficient Transferrin (CDT, the substance tested in the CDT Test) is on average 17 days. And it takes about 5 half-lives to get near zero, assuming you stopped all alcohol intake. A half- life is the time for the amount to halve (duh).So 5X17=85 days so round up to 90 days or three months.Suggestion, at that point you'll be well on your way to having stopped drinking! ...Read more

Why do my pupils dialate for no reason? I don't do drugs and i don't consume any type of alcohol, but my pupils dialate at random. They are usually bigger than they should be and when the light is dimmer you can barely see the color in my eye because of t

There : There are many people with natural large pupils. They often have light colored iris and tend to be young. It is not a problem. As some people are tall and some short, some people have large pupils and some have small pupils. If you have always had large pupils, don't worry your eyes are fine.

Many possible causes: Many things can damage intestines including antibiotics, allergy, diet, tumor, autoimmune disease causing diarrhea as well as abnormal bowel function such as irritable bowel syndrome.

I have sgot 1061 and sgpt 1116. Done all tests for hepatitis. All negative. No jaundice. And i also don't consume alcohol. So wht can b the reason?

This is very serious: You have Wilson's disease until proved otherwise. The lab diagnosis of this is very tricky. If not, you have hemochromatosis or autoimmune hepatitis until proven otherwise. If you are taking any medications, you need to look at whether you're allergic -- "natural herbal holistic" medicines are often not what they're supposed to be. Or you may have non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Consider biopsy. ...Read more
