ETG / ETS Alcohol Test: Specimen Type: Urine
Urine tests aren’t limited to looking for the evidence of drugs. At Test Smartly Labs we can also test the urine for the presence of alcohol. This is a preferred way of testing to see if someone has been drinking alcohol by several individuals, and especially employers and attorneys who need a glimpse into someone’s alcohol use (or abuse) for a longer period of time.
Breath alcohol tests and blood alcohol tests will let you know someone’s alcohol levels within 12-24 hours of drinking, but a urine alcohol test can show you how much someone’s been drinking up to 80 hours afterwards.
When we drink, we intake alcohol (also called ethanol). Ethanol enters our body and quickly goes to our bloodstream and other organs. Our body treats alcohol like any other substance we put into it – it quickly starts breaking it down.
As the body breaks down alcohol, it forms byproducts (also called metabolites) that travel around the body. These will stay in the body longer than the alcohol itself. The metabolites that ethanol give off are called EtG (ethyl glucuronide) and EtS (ethyl sulfate). These metabolites show up in urine and provide insight into if someone’s recently consumed alcohol, and how much.
