Fri, Jul 31 7:45pm · Other causes of failed PEth test for alcohol abuse? in Mental Health

Good question….as far as I know they can go up really high. One thing you might want to do us get somebody to run an assay on your Phospholipase D activity. That’s the enzyme that makes PEth. Some people have hyperactive Phospholipase D which would theoretically account for high PEth levels.

I think there was a 2019 article in a French pathology journal that purported to find that alcohol-based hand sanitizers can dramatically raise PEth over a short-term period. There might be a posting if that article on this thread?

Good luck. Remember it sometimes takes its sweet time, but the Truth eventually comes out. Whoever developed and marketed that test with so many variables and compromising factors not even known — much less investigated — ought to think about something called ETHICS.

A lot of testing centers (and other places) have alcohol-based hand sanitizer that will yield a positive PEth. That’s why that study is important,

I posted a link on another thread (I think “PEth Madness”). I’ll look for it again.

There’s a new (2019) French study showing that alcohol-based hand sanitizer not only results in positive EtGs but also positive PEth. That's game-changing.

I’m hoping that all this hand-sanitizer use will yield enough enough false-positives on EtG AND PEth to put these jokers on the hot seat.

We really need to get the word out on this article. I strangely only heard about it today.

Please take a look at this article….see how much a single application of ethanol-based hand sanitizer raises the PEth! It’s insane….but I think explains a lot of this mystery. Note too that the study participants self-reported as tea-totalers had HIGH PEth levels (in the 60s).
