Brief Answer: You are good Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about this accident you got involved in. Your results are perfectly normal and shows no information in support of any recent alcohol intake before the blood was collected for analysis.

Brief Answer: results are not reported in percentages. Detailed Answer: Hi and thanks for following up with me. These results are not reported as percentages but rather in mg/dl. You had undetectable levels and it would in no way suggest alcohol intake prior to testing. If there is something specific about this that you want to know, please ask as a specific question. Thanks. Dr. Ditah, D.
