Metabolic Testing-Alcohol Metabolism

This alcohol metabolism test detects the genes related to alcohol metabolism in the human body, evaluates the alcohol metabolism ability of the subject. This type of precise healthcare testing helps determine the speed and efficiency at which alcohol is metabolized, which can vary among individuals and can impact their sensitivity to alcohol, intoxication levels, and susceptibility to alcohol-related health problems.

Features of Metabolic Testing-Alcohol Metabolism

  • This alcohol metabolism test is based on biochip method, the genes detected including ADH1B, ALDH2, CYP2E1.

What is the meaning of alcohol metabolism test?

An alcohol metabolite test is a type of laboratory test that measures the presence and concentration of alcohol metabolites in a person's body. This test is typically used to determine if an individual has consumed alcohol recently. 

The most common alcohol metabolite that is tested for is ethyl glucuronide (EtG), which is a direct metabolite of ethanol (the type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages). EtG can be detected in various bodily fluids, such as urine, blood, or hair, for a certain period of time after alcohol consumption.

Alcohol metabolite tests are often used in workplace testing programs, substance abuse treatment programs, legal proceedings (e.g., probation or child custody cases), and for monitoring individuals who are in recovery from alcohol addiction. These tests provide objective evidence of alcohol use, even after the effects of alcohol have worn off, because alcohol metabolites can persist in the body for several hours to days, depending on the type of test and the individual's metabolism.
