since she is the main source of our household income and this is a such an important job to her at this stage of her career and life, is there some solid medical research - studies - cases- that we can reference to use to show that her liver / pancreatic conditions caused the false positive and any re-test will likely show same false positive? HELP!!!!
Any attorneys specializing in medical out there that we should contact? any help the community can provide to help us from being chewed up and spit out due to a false test result would be greatly appreciated...

Hello,I am forwarding a list of drugs which may show a false positive on urine analysis.
http://www.medhelp.org/user_journals/show/108168/Why-You-Might-Have-A-False-Positive-Drug-Test is a site which gives details of drugs which may cause false positives.

thank you for the list Dr. Aren but I had found the lists of possible substances that could cause false positives via Google - what I am asking help with is finding medical resources that substantiate or at least suggest that a link exists between diseases of the liver / pancreas such as my wife has been diagnosed with that may explain the false positive THC result she recently experienced.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
