Hi,

As you probably know the kidneys help remove waste and drugs from the body, so kidney disease would reduce the speed a drug is removed from the body, so that if you had taken drug that normally would leave your body in two, it may still be in your body after that two days. This could lead to a false positive at the time the sample was taken, though it would not cause a false positive if you had never taken the drug they say you took.

Can you tell me what they say you tested positive for? What kind of test was this and do you know if you are being told it's positive because of an immunoassay or from a confirmatory test, such as a GC/MS or HPLC/MS test?

Take care,
Andy
