Sat, Feb 15 12:57pm · Other causes of failed PEth test for alcohol abuse? in Mental Health

I’m not a narc nor am I big into finger-pointing, but if these jokers are up to no-good, I intend to bust them. The harm they have done to individuals, careers, and families is unconscionable. At least we know they’ll be held to account one day. Sooner or later.

Very good advice. Whenever my program does a PEth, I go to requestatest.com and order a LabCorp test the same day.

I’d still do it. Different labs seem often to produce different results.

Get it rechecked and prepare to fight! Don’t take any guff!

I’ve had false positive tests as well. I think it’s because the enzyme that manufactures PEth (Phospholipase D) is hyperactive in MS and, of course, I have MS.

The point is….we DON’T know at least as much as we DO know about PEth. That is why, in my opinion, its use in this context is unethical.

To my knowledge, the reason the FDA will not evaluate PEth (or for that matter, EtG/ETS) is that the tests were developed exclusively for profit. They have no therapeutic application.

I completely agree….the problem is that these “experts” are the the classic bad medical intern….they have no insight into their own ignorance. The classic “they don’t know what they don’t know.”
