Sample Collection Options for this Carbohydrate Deficient Transferrin (CDT) Test.
This blood test for Carbohydrate Deficient Transferrin (CDT) enables evaluation of recent alcohol intake, either for initial assessment or to monitor levels of consumption.
High consumption of alcohol up to 2-3 weeks prior to submitting the sample will lead to a high CDT percentage figure.
If you have lost your licence because of a drink driving offence this test result may be requested by the DVLA as evidence of low alcohol intake.
There's a reason that over 30% of Blue Horizon Kit requests are from patients that have used us before.

As always, a superb service by all the BH team. Fast, efficient but very thoughtfuland caring of medical conditions, and associated patient mindset.. highly reccomended .cgUK
Utterly patient, kind and helpful, kit arrived next day, as did my results. 5 stars well-deserved.UK
Great service and product. The turn around is brilliant (mostly - there was a glitch during the early part of the Covid pandemic, but that seems to be resolved now). Tests are recognised by the medical profession so I am able to use the results to get the treatment I need without further tests.UK
I had various questions which they answered via email/webchat and the timing of getting a kit, sending it back and getting the results was good.UK
