Customer Question

Will niacin and excersise help rid etg from urine faster? I had one beer the night before I tested, but did not test until 5: pm. Does Ginko in energy drinks cause a false possative? How can I speed up the elimination of etg?

What is etg?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
etg is a test for metabolites in urine(not the alsohol itself). Metabolites are biomarkers of the reaction that takes place after alcohol is consumed. This proccess is formed in the liver and eliminated in half life. I have an etg cut off of 500ng. I am surprised you have not heard of this test for etg/ets.
Expert:  Dr. S Riaz replied 7 years ago.
You mean ethyl glucouronide. See, I do not prefer to use acronyms as they can cause a lot of confusion. So, it is always better to confirm it. ETG is a metabolic product of ethanol and is cleared from the urine in about 80 hours. Does this answer help you.
