Question:

From Chicago, Illinois, USA:

Is it possible for ethanol to show in the urine of a diabetic, and would yeast make a false positive for this? Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. Where could we find more information on this?

Answer:

Alcohol is generally metabolized in the body and blown off in the lung. If yeast are present, and could they metabolize the glucose into a sufficient level of ethanol, is a question for an expert.
