Alcohol abuse during pregnancy and EtG Hair Follicle Alcohol Test

Alcohol abuse during pregnancy and EtG Hair Follicle Alcohol Test

According Pediatric Publications up to 82% of women drink alcohol during pregnancy. Large percent of women cutting down on alcohol intake throughout pregnancy but, but around 45% may drink heavily in the first trimester and up to 6% continue to get drunk up until the labor. Alcohol intake during pregnancy is associated with numerous negative outcomes such as perinatal and long-term outcomes, including spontaneous abortion, preterm delivery, birth defects, and cognitive impairment.

Many physicians believe that alcohol testing must be mandatory for pregnant woman. The lawmakers support a proposal to keep mothers accountable for drinking during pregnancy since alcohol intake endangering unborn child.

Veritas Lab offers an ideal solution to screen pregnant woman for alcohol abuse during pregnancy. Hair Follicle Alcohol Test indicates ethanol abuse over 90 days period.

So lets see what is EtG Hair Follicle Alcohol Test.

The EtG Hair Follicle Test is a type of alcohol test that can detect ethanol consumption in the past 90 days. Veritas Lab the only laboratory in the United States that offers EtG Hair Follicle test for Alcohol in all 50 states.

Ethanol is the main ingredient of every alcoholic beverage. Use of alcohol can be detected by direct ethanol traces in the breath, blood, and urine. These tests can be done on the first day. After that, ethanol is being broken down by your liver and cannot be detected in direct ethanol testing. Veritas Lab network of laboratories designed and implemented a special test that can detect alcohol use in a prolonged period of times. It can be done by searching for a direct metabolite produced by your body in response to ethanol intake. EtG stands for Ethyl Glucuronide. Ethyl Glucuronide (ethyl β-D-6-glucuronide) is a direct metabolite of ethanol which can be found in your urine for up to 80 hours and in your hair for up to 90 days.

Veritas Lab offers Hair Follicle EtG (ethyl β-D-6-glucuronide) Alcohol Tests around the country. EtG Hair Follicle Test is a perfect solution for those who need the proof of long-term sobriety.

The regular tests for alcohol search for ethanol in your system. Many products contain a small amount of ethanol, and some of the bacteria, fungal infections and even diseases such as diabetes can produce ethanol in your body. All of these factors can cause a positive reaction to traditional alcohol tests. EtG Hair Follicle tests do not check for ethanol. Ethyl Glucuronide is a metabolite which is produced in your body in response to a presence of ethanol. Small amounts of ethanol injected into your bloodstream or urine by bacteria, mouthwash or diseases do not cause a response with ethyl glucuronide production. So if you tested positive on traditional alcohol test, it can be explained by non alcohol-related factors. If you tested positive on EtG Alcohol Test – it means that you did consume alcohol. Also, ethanol can only stay in your system for 12-24 hours. After this period no traces of ethanol can be found. Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) as a metabolite will stay in your storage organs for a long period of time. It can be found in the urine for up to 80 hours, and it will stay in the hair indefinitely as long as you’re not shaving it.

Here at Veritas Lab we strongly believe that utilizing EtG Hair Follicle Alcohol Testing during the pregnancy will make our country more healthy and our children more safe. If you have any questions about EtG Hair Follicle Alcohol Test or wish to schedule one we urge you to call 888-398-0059.
