I had to do a mouth swab test and it tested positive greater than 0.8 the legal limit and I have not drank in over 5 years. someone please tell me how that happens ? I listed all my medicines I am on ad I am A diabetic I have out of control blood sugars for a long time and I eat foods wit artificial sweetners in them. I take many medications but they said none of my meds could have caused this positive test. But yet I go to my family doctor and have a blood test done and it came back at 0.3.. how does tihs happen when I do not drink.?
Why would I fail a mouth swab drug test for alcohol when I dont drink??

If a diabetic has a yeast infection, glucose can ferment into alcohol.
Did you use any mouthwash prior to the test? There is alcohol in mouthwash. It may be possible that it is your diabetes condition that may be causing the false positive. It could very well be a bad testing device. What does your Dr think?
