There are a number of circumstances that can result in a DUI blood test false positive: diabetes, cough medicines, and vitamin supplements to name a few. Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can result in dizziness, wobbliness, and slurred speech, among other impairments. When driving, a sudden drop in glucose levels can be especially scary.
