Hello. This is Dr. Love.

Let me do some calculations and type an answer.

Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 11 months ago

No, you will likely not be zero at 10 PM.

Although a blooc alcohol calculator can only calculate an average level that would be achieved by someone of a certain age, gender, and weight. The peak blood alcohol level after such an ingestion would be about 0.16 - 0.18.

The body typically clears alcohol at a relatively constant rate. loering the level by 0.015 per hour. So after about 9 hours, the BAC would be around 0.025-0.045.

Since these are averages, these are the most likely values, but there is a large amount of variability, so it is possible that you could be zero, but it is more likely that you will not.

Is there any further information that would be helpful?

OK. I do not know what time zone you are in, so I do not know whether the time has past.

What was your BAC level?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
0.00
Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Excellent. This may mean in the future that your levels will be below the average levels that would be estimated by the BAC calculators.

Please provide a positive rating so that I am credited for assisting you. I notice that you have not provided a positive rating for any answer that you have received from any expert. Is there something else that you are seeking?

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.
