Avatar n tn I was told by a counselor that they have a new urine test that can detect alcohol for 8 days. The previous test could only detect for 24 hours. Could this be true and if so, how is that possible?
Avatar f tn Is it possible for a false positive or alcohol in a urine test if youre diabetic? Im in a suboxone clinic and I get tested every two weeks. I was positive two consecutive times in July when I had my toe amputated and then it was fine now I tested positive again in November two consecutive times again. Back in July I had a UTI and believe I might again.

Avatar n tn how long after a drink of alcohol eg 3 drinks of spririt can it be detected by urine or blood sample
Avatar n tn I haven't drank alchohol for 3 years and am now trying to obtain a life insurance policy. As of recent I had a blood, urine test conducted. The mojority of the results are normal, however here are a few results that are of concern: BILI. TOT 1.3 (Range .1-1.2), ALT (SGPT) 52 (Range 0-45), GGT (GGTP) 105 (Range 2-65), Cholesterol 204 (140-199), Triglycerides 227 (Range 10-150). Odds are that these measurements are correct. So am I going to make it?
Avatar n tn 4 years ago I had gross hematuria at the end of urination.Went to my DR. and Went for urine test, cat scan and catyscopy. Everything turn o.k. It lasted for about 10 days.I was diagnosed with prostatitis and given antibiotics. 2 years later it happen again.Went ot dr. again and was given antibiotics. About one year later happen again.I didnt go to anyone and it stopped on its own in 9 days. 3 days ago it is happening again.
Avatar n tn 2, this can be checked by a doctor through urinalysis test. Or Ketosis can be checked by using special urine test strips which measure the level of ketones in the urine which you can obtained at local drug store. Blood Glucose test for diabetes by doctor will get you started. It can tell if you are hyper or hypo-glycemic which hypo is diabetes and doctor will probably want further test done to verify and confirm.
Avatar n tn If someone drinks 1 beer a few hours prior to a urine chlamydia test will that mess up the results in any way?
Avatar n tn My doctor thinks that it may have been Chlamydia but because I was on the Doxycycline for 4 days, it may have gotten rid of it before we took the 2nd urine sample and culture test. Before I went to see my doctor I was researching urethritis on the internet and read that excessive alcohol consumption can cause urethritis. For the past year I have been drinking very heavily, almost every day or every other day.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor about this, and he ran a blood test (CBC), urine test and EKG. Everything came out normal including liver and kidney function. I have no problems when I drink non-alcoholized beer or wine. I have tried every kind of alcohol, beer, rum, wine, gin and they all have the same effect. I really miss being able to drink with friends socially. Could this be an allergy? I don't know where to go from here in solving this puzzle. Any help appreciated, Ken.
Avatar m tn They can check blood alcohol level, and they can check the organs to see if they've sustained damage from things like alcohol. For instance, a blood test would indicate whether your liver is working correctly ( at least at that moment in time. ). I would suggest reading the medical charts carefully to see what they actually diagnosed. Alcohol, and the process of sobering up from alcohol can cause chest pains, increased heart rate, and lots of cardiac issues.
Avatar f tn They switched me to a PA because they were swamped, it had nothing to do with my urine test (which I was scared to death about). The urine tests he takes, he tests only to seem if for instance, you are prescribed Percocet as a breakthrough med and you take a couple of Vicodin if you run out. They test for the levels of what you are supposed to be one vs what you have taken, Was on methadone for years....
Avatar f tn Namaste, I hate to disagree with ibizan, but if they are testing for alcohol, the EtG test can detect alcohol in urine up to 80 hours after consumption. The Alcohol ETG Urine Test is a biomarker test that detects the presence of ethyl glucuronide in the urine samples. Alcohol, when consumed, is metabolized by the liver i.e. when someone consumes alcohol, in the liver, a compound called glucuronic acid reacts with it and forms Ethyl glucuronide as a metabolite.
521646 tn?1212067669 You friend really does need to stop drinking alcohol as the elevated ALTs and GGT indicate alcohol damage. Along with the damage HepC is causing, he really is placing keep his Liver at risk. High GGT is not good. High ALTs also indicate damage is occuring. LabTest Online explation of GGT and what it is a marker for. From http://www.labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/ggt/test.
Avatar n tn Likely not. Hopefully you are floowing up on his drinking; such consumption indicates a potentially serious problem.
Avatar n tn Remember that sometimes, taking certain medications like cholesterol medications can cause elevated liver function test results. That's why the doctor orders the test in the first place, to see if the meds are not hurting the liver. Many people have mild or moderate chronic kidney damage (especially diabetics) but one test may not mean much. Sometimes an assesment is better made by comparing test results to see if they got better or worse.
Avatar f tn For the last month or so i have started to notice that my urine has been starting to smell really aweful like something has died, or rotten eggs. I'm a full time athlete and i drink lots of water and poweraid/ gatoride type drinks. I dont drink alcohol, or do drugs. My boyfriend and i are sexually active adn use protection everytime. Does anyone know what is wrong? or has any advice on what is going on?
Avatar f tn It can be due to stress or urge incontinence but there are other causes of incontinence, such as nerve damage. Seek the opinion of a physician. The most important laboratory test is a urine analysis. The need for other blood tests or imaging studies like ultrasound X-rays and CT scan will depend upon the clinical situation and presentation. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar m tn Off and on again for two years I have had a problem with frequent urination, interrupted flow, and sometimes hesitation. The frequency would get worse if i drank alcohol. After some time the symptoms would go away. I had a bladder infection when I was younger and the frequency does not feel the same as then \i would be going about every 10 - 15 minutes. Now I go about every two or three hours. I was checked for gonorrhea before and the test was negative.
Avatar f tn i am looking into kidney diet.. did you do the 24 hr urine test? sonogram? what did the nephrologist tell you? mine said to make sure that i tell all my dr.'s when they prescribe meds..no NSAIDs do you have muscle pain? mine is so bad in the legs i can barely bend them or walk..
Avatar n tn Brown or coke colored urine usually indicates a problem with the liver or bile ducts. It can also occur because of the consumption of a dye in food. Blood in the urine is always red or orange.
Avatar n tn He or she may recommend a urine analysis, which can detect protein in urine. If protein is detected in your urine, your doctor likely will recommend additional tests to determine the cause." www.mayoclinic.com/health/foamy-urine/AN01702 Have you noticed whether there has been a change in the disinfectant used in the flush since the time you started noticing the foamy urine? Was there any protein detected on your urinalysis? Have you noticed any change in urine color?
