False Blood Alcohol Concentration

I have cirrhosis. I haven't had a drink of alcohol in more than a year. My blood alcohol concentration was positive when I was being interviewed for a liver transplant. I've looked everywhere trying to find out why this happened. I'm anonymous. I'm not lying. This is very frustrating.

I'm writing down everything I eat and drink and having my toxicity levels checked periodically. Do you have any ideas?

I'm 46 year old female, I take Lactulose, Rifixin, Lasix and spiralactone. (sorry for spelling). My weight fluctuates with acites, but I'm a normal weight person.
