EtG test facts and myths:
The EtG test is extremely sensitive. This test can detect even low levels of alcohol. EtG cartridges can detect alcohol in the urine up to five days after consumption. In studies of participants without alcohol-use disorders, EtG has been detected in urine samples for up to 80 hours (3.3 days) after heavy alcohol exposure.
What is considered heavy drinking for EtG test?
To detect heavy drinking, a cutoff of 100 ng/mL is recommended. Importantly, even at this relatively low cutoff, EtG-I detected relatively low levels of light drinking after two days.
What is a normal EtG level?
Concentrations between 25 -100 ng/mL have been used for confirming EtS. This is consistent with recent findings that levels of EtG greater than 500 ng/mL is associated with alcohol consumption 18.
What is a high etg level?
Levels higher than 1,000ng/mL of EtG in the urine is considered a “high” positive, and usually is indicative of heavy drinking within the previous day or same day, or even light drinking the day of the test. “Low” positive tests have levels of EtG between 500 to 1,000ng/mL. Source
