no, one glass of wine will not cause enough ETG to go above 500 in 24 hours.

Thx Dr. David, I didn't think so but wanted to check. I'm guessing if you had one glass a day for multiple days it would accumlatively raise to above 500, correct?

over time, it will most likely still be low

Typically a single drink (or 4oz glass of wine) causes a peek level at about 2-4 hours of somewhere around 400ng/ml of EtG. By 24 hours the level of EtG is usually going to be much lower, at about 100ng/ml.

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.
