How accurate are home etg tests

Doctor's Assistant: Is there an upcoming drug test scheduled? What kind of samples are being tested?

I take etg test every Thursday at 730. Since June 1st, I have passed everyone except for one on 8/3. I now have a home etg test and have passed since. I always stop at 90 hours or more.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

730pm. 6'2" 250. 50 year old male

home ETG tests are pretty accurate.

stopping alcohol use before 90 hours of testing should result in a negative test for you

no alcohol after sunday afternoon, correct?

No. I drank until 9-10pm. Making it 93 hours when I take the test at 730pm.But I was also asking about the accuracy of home etg tests.
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

at 93 hours, your ETG will be negative

you don't have to worry

best to avoid all alcohol if you know you have to have ETG testing
