Well, you can try to dilute your urine. The basic principle of urine dilution is drinking a plenty of water. One gallon of water is enough to pass home drug test. But what if you need to pass a drug test in a lab? You should know that labs are required to test the creatinine in all regulated specimens, and to test specific gravity for specimens with creatinine less than 20 mg/dL. So most likely you will fail because of diluted results if you will drink pure water.

You need to take creatinine supplements. So your creatinine level will stay above cutoff while you will flush out marijuana metabolites from your urine with water.

 

warm regards

Unfortunately, the information that the other expert provided to you is scientifically incorrect.


 


Taking creatine supplements does NOT increase the urine creatinine or specific gravity, the two tests that are done to identify a urine as "dilute".


 


This published study support this fact.
