I have recently had a positive urine screen for alcohol- I was told that the EtG level was positive, howver after researching this I had them run a EtS to prove that the EtG was false positive as I have not consumed any alcohol in over a year. Is any one familiar with EtG testing and why go diabetics get a false positive?

If I understood my doctor correctly, you can get a false positive because your blood sugar is high. Alcohol shows up as sugar??? or has high sugar in it??? Anyone know?
