Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I was under the assumption that the peth tests for heavy chronic use. Now I am told that a one day exposure may be positive (cut off level 20)
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

A typical wine bottle size is 750 ml that contains 25.4 fluid ounces.

so you consumed 4 bottles of wine?

Ask Your Own Drug Testing Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No...just one 750ml bottle
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

I see.

A Standard Drink is a drink that contains 10g of pure alcohol.

one bottle is about 4 glasses of wine.

you have about a 50/50% chance that your PETh result with be positive .

Peth testing tests for the past 3 weeks of use

use of more than 4 drinks per day can usually turn PETh test positive

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0376871617302685

you have to wait and see what the testing results show

every patient is slightly different.

you are on the cut off area or grey area
