  • Can I drink alcohol the night before blood work or will the result be wrong?

    There’s no such thing as “blood work” that could give any reasonable answer to this question. You aren’t getting “blood work”, you’re getting particular tests, some of which may be affected by alcohol consumption the night before, some of which might not, and some of which might be affected by alcohol consumption for days before.

    You need to ask your doctor if there are any things you should or should not be doing to avoid compromising the specific tests you’re having done.

    Many years ago as a fairly junior technician in biochemistry I noticed that one of the biochemical profiles I was running was from my boss the senior chief technician. He had a raised sodium, chloride indicating possible dehydration and slightly raised gama GT indicating enzymes induction possibly by alcohol. I took the analyser chart to him and said “”You had a hangover when this was taken didn’t you?”.

    He replied “ I still have it.”

    One drink no matter of what is .02 liver cleanse it in 1 hour at .015 rate no matter on gender or weight, unless you are a tiny woman( then 2 hours per drink)

    Nothing will expedite it. All tho lots of water is good.

    If you had 10 drinks you are at approximately.20 you will need 12–13 hours, then test will no show.

    Blood work for liver function will show some damage tho, if you are at .20every day

    At .40-.50 ppl die

    Nope, your electrolytes will be not be ‘normal’ and certain enzymes will show higher activity.

    The body breaks down alcohol through digestion and the liver then reassembles it as cholesterol and triglycerides, another type of fat, according to Heart UK. Therefore, alcohol consumption can raise cholesterol and triglycerides levels.

    If you’re instructed to fast before a cholesterol test, you’ll want to abstain from alcohol during that time so it does not affect your test results.

    Typically, a physician would have no way of knowing without asking appropriate questions in the history, such as the CAGE screen. We typically ask about how much alcohol a person consumes. People are not always honest, and no, we don’t always know when people are not being honest. It is the patient’s health, and it is their business if they don’t wish to divulge.

    However, there are certain tip offs. Sometimes liver tests are abnormal, however, that might mean the patient already has some serious health problems related to alcohol. If someone comes in to an appointment and they smell like alcohol, we obviously know that. Most people do not smell like alcohol unless they are maybe at a party. Also, people who come in and have a history of having been in a serious auto accident. Very often, they will have back pain from “one of their accidents” and often someone was killed. That is a red flag and I would definitely ask about that.

    Well you can but I would think you are going for a blood test to get accurate numbers About what is called a chemistry profile so the doctor can treat should you have to be treated and it’s never good to have alcohol in your blood when having a blood test it will give very high liver results and give other inaccurate numbers including sugar heart etc. And going drunk is never good.

    No, routine blood tests do not measure or report an ethanol level. It is not a difficult test to perform, but if you want to measure the ethanol level in the blood you have to order the test specifically.

    The test is routinely available from hospital labs but the lab will not perform the test without an order.

    When I have ordered an ethanol level it is usually when I am working in the Emergency Room.

    I did have an odd experience some years ago regarding an ethanol level. A man came to the walk-in clinic at our hospital and asked me to order an ethanol level on him. He said he was having no trouble doing his job, but his boss had accused him of being drunk and he wanted to get a level.

    He appeared intoxicated and so I advised him that it was likely that the test would just prove he was drunk. Why would he want to do this? As far as I could tell he wanted to prove that he could do his job sober or intoxicated.

    Well the level came back several times over the legal limit (for driving) which is 0.08% so he was definitely quite under the influence. I asked him again whether he wanted to release this information and advised him that to do so he would need to go to medical records and sign a release which he did. I never found out what happened when he showed the result to his boss.

    Probably nothing.

    Unless they are testing alcohol levels, but even then you would need to drink a boatload of ethanol for it to remain in your bloodstream overnight. Usually it wears of in a couple of hours.

    I mean, if you are going to drink yourself into a coma your bloodwork will probably be abnormal, but typical drinking should have no effect.

    I had an alcohol blood test, it came out to be positive even though I didn’t consume any alcohol for the last 3 weeks. I would like to know how this could happen?

    Perhaps you should elaborate “positive”

    I was having blood tests every month to prove to the court that I was not drinking alcohol

    Although I was not drinking any alcohol, the tests would only confirm a “less than x%”, I was concerned by this, but my doctor stated that the amount was negligible, this is because the body produces tiny amounts of alcohol naturally, no-one is going to give a test with a 100% alcohol free result

    Probably not drugs and foreign substances clear at different rates. Alcohol is pretty fast, marijuana very slow.

    I don’t do hospital emergency like I used to. However, if someone had an incident like a wreck or a driving arrest, and the BA test is done later, you can do the math in reverse. Usually clears in 1–2 days. If you need periodic BA’s, like for a job or a probation surveillance, it’s usually just a good idea to lead a cautious life.

    if you have to do what this question suggests, eventually it will catch up to you and bite you.

    This depends on which tests you’re coming in for and what you mean by “having a few drinks.”

    Alcohol can affect your liver function tests as well as your lipid profile.

    Alcohol can affect your glucose levels.

    Alcohol can make you dehydrated which in turn can have an effect on some of your test results; such as your electrolytes and hematocrit.

    One or two drinks 24 hours prior to testing may have unremarkable effects. 24 hours is sufficient time even for fasting tests like lipids and glucose (which is 8 hours).

    Yes – no problem. A blood test will not show any alcohol, unless you have had some say up to 10 hours earlier. Say you have a double martini and you are 180 lbs male, the alcohol will not show a few hours later in a blood test. It is detectable in your hair for very much longer and this is how physicians who have an alcohol problem and trying to get their medical license back are tested.
