Urine alcohol test 1 test

Urine tests work by detecting a metabolite of alcohol called ethyl glucuronide (EtG). Ethyl glucuronide appears in the blood and urine after alcohol has been metabolized in the body. EtG can only be present in a urine sample if the person has been drinking alcohol. This is an major advantage, as traditional alcohol tests that look only for traces of ethanol can sometimes give a false positive result. This occurs when urine in the bladder has elevated sugar levels and interacts with yeast and bacteria. This is called in vitro ethanol””. Since EtG is produced only when ethanol is metabolized in the liver, EtG will be detected only in subjects who have recently consumed alcohol.
