What do CDT test results of 1.6 percent positive indicate?
CDT testing is an indicator of alcohol use
CDT testing is used to assess the amount of alcohol intake. Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin of 13% is indicative of heavy alcohol use (about 5 drinks per day for past 2 weeks).
CDT testing is also monitored to see if the amount of alcohol consumption has increased or decreased.
If the CHO deficient transferrin level has decreased since the last testing, then it is indicative that there is decreased alcohol consumption.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
CDT tests indicate drinking pattern.
CDT testing provides an idea about the last 2 weeks of drinking pattern.
So if you have abstained from or reduced alcohol intake for past 2 to 3 weeks, the CHO deficient tranferritin level will come down.
Hope I have answered your query.
