This is Dr. David

a UA is a urinary analysis which is a common test of the urine to check for multiple problem

you have to urinate into a cup and catch urine in the middle of your urinary stream

the test studies and analyzes your urine to check for red blood cells, white blood cells, pH, and signs for urinary tract infection

let me know if you have other questions.

I was more curious because I had a UA for probation. I had 3 margaritas.. The last one at 745pm snd my UA was at 10am this morning. I'm very fearful about failing. Could you let me know how long it stays in the urine and if I have a chance of passing.... It is not an etg test. Thank you.

Urine test.

urine alcohol test is most commonly an ETG.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They don't do those unless you are suspect of a problem. Just curious how long alcohol stays in your body. If 14 hours is long enough for it to be deleted out of your body to pass a test

urine ETG testing can detect alcohol for up to 30-50 hours usually after use.
