Do you drink too much? Low normal or high consumption – how much is too much? Are you worried that your alcohol consumption is too high? Then you are not alone, welcome to book our PEth test to get an objective assessment of your consumption. The test analyzes phosphatidylethanol (PEth) which is an alcohol marker that identifies long-term alcohol consumption. A single intoxication does not produce a significant increase in the PEth concentration in the blood, but with regular consumption of alcohol, the PEth value will gradually increase.
The alcohol consumption test is recommended if you want to gain insight into your alcohol consumption and how it can affect your health. The Peth test is also for you who want to follow how your values change when you change your alcohol habits. Research has shown that over 40 different disease states can be related to alcohol consumption and for many diseases alcohol is a contributing cause of the disease.
In case of regular alcohol intake, elevated values of PEth are detected, which can be related to how much alcohol you have consumed. The PEth test is therefore recommended for those who are interested in seeing if your current alcohol consumption gives elevated values.
Based on this value, we can therefore conclude whether your alcohol intake can be considered harmful. In case of regular alcohol consumption in large quantities, elevated values may indicate that you are in the risk zone. The test acts as a warning bell and signals the need to change alcohol habits.
