Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

Well, I understand that you have been planned for ETG test tomorrow and have taken 3 bottles of wine on Saturday.

Etg urine test looks for one of the by-products caused as breaks down of alcohol in the body. That substance is Ethyl Glucuronide. It’s commonly called EtG.

It can check alcohol ingestion as long as 3-4 days after intake, or to be exact about 80 hours after the liver metabolizes alcohol.

If possible, you can get tested after 80 hours from the last drink, than you would pass this test.

The EtG detects the presence of ethyl glucuronide in urine. Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) is a direct metabolite in alcohol. Its presence in urine may be used to detect recent alcohol consumption.

As it would be only 48 hours, so Sorry to say that you may not pass this test at this time.

If possible, you can try postponing the test time.

If you get test done, after 80 hours from the last drink, than I am sure you would safely pass this test.

Hope this helped
