Customer Question
I am being required...

I am being required to submit to an ETG test, also for a custody issue (same with the article here), and I want to know if there is any way I can pass it within 24 hours.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I had one drink yesterday afternoon, I found out this morning I have to test tonight

Hello

No that is not likely.

Studies show that the average detection time is from 25 to 50 hours.

There is no way to alter your test results.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

With one drink, it is very unlikely that you test positive on this.

So you should be fine.

I would stay hydrated to be sure.

Also, many household products cause a false positive test like hand sanitizers

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
