What does a 55ng/ml...

What does a 55ng/ml. on a peth test mean. Is it true that small amounts of alcohol can trigger a peth? Can you really determine how much a person has had to drink ?

Doctor's Assistant: Is there an upcoming drug test scheduled? What kind of samples are being tested?

No. it has been taken

It is not my peth test. The individual may have gotten drunk once in the last month. I do not know how much she drinks.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

I see.

20ng/mL (Positive PETH) means the person drank 7 units in 2 hours for a single day most likely

95 ng/mL means the person drinks 2 binge sessions per day of alcohol

so the person most likely drinks somehwere between this.

the person most likely drinsk more than just once in a month.

most likely this is close to drinking several drinks daily

let me know if you have questions.
