Fri, Apr 24 1:30am · Other causes of failed PEth test for alcohol abuse? in Mental Health

I really want to hear more about autoimmune disorders and PETH. I have been sick with something most of my life, and no docs seems to care enough to pursue it (like it is all in my head). Then I had ALF (acute sudden liver failure) with no diagnosis as to what happened… my liver just died. So now I have even worse autoimmune responses, sore throat, folliculitis, RLS, …but they just seemed focused on the liver and how it is now and not on anything else. Then this past year, they gave me a PETH test with my yearly blood work of "Everything", and it was over 100… like 123. Really? I have maybe one or two craft beers every two or three months. I have two kids, 3 dogs, a husband and a job. If I was drinking enough to have a PETH that high, I would not be functioning. They said, they would check it again at the next physical. sheesh…. it will probably still be high since they didn't take into consideration that it could be ANYTHING else.

It was blood draw with many other labs. My only thought is that I use hand sanitizer a lot and did before the test. I read somewhere if it is on your skin it could affect the test

I also have autoimmune issues and am a posttransplant patient. I have REBV and my dad has GBS. I got a score of 125, and can't convince my docs that I would be totally unfunctional if that was alcohol-related.

I know that your message is a very old post. However, did you ever find anything out about this? I have high Peth scores with no alcohol involved and i get a mystery rash/hives and a constant sore throat…. like mono or shingles. I can't any docs to consider an autoimmune response.
