My son was drug tested by the outpatient center he attends and his creatinine levels weren't where they should be. He's been drinking a lot of water, bringing 4 bottles of water to school with him in the morning. He also has lots of water in his room. This time of year, in the classrooms it is very hot. He and his older brothers always had an issue with the temperatures in the rooms. For some reason it seems to aggregate their allergies. Anyway, he says he's very thirsty. Even knowing that a "dirty" or diluted drug test could send him to either day school or residential (which he doesn't want to do) he says he can't help it but drink the water. I was told that drinking a lot of water wouldn't change the results of the tests. He's being encouraged to stop drinking the amount of water to see if it's the case. I looked on line and saw that a diluted test is done after the fact, adding to the specimen itself. Does anyone know anything about this? I guess it's just a wait and see situation but I am just curious. He seems fine...calm, happy, "normal", so this news is a surprise.
