Is there a condition that would cause a urine alcohol test to be abnormally high?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Ethyyl Glucuronide

Urine test for alcohol is so sensitive that it tcan give a false positive after any exposure to alcohol including alcohol from hand sanitizers, medications, cosmetics etc.
Negative test is reliable. 90% of alcohol is broken down in the liver, rest comes out in urine, exhaled breath & sweat. Fructose ingestion increases alcohol metabolism & thus could result in a false high for alcohol metabolites.
