The first thing that jumps out is the creatinine reading. High creatinine artificially increases EtG/EtS. Normalized to creatinine EtG/EtS reads as follows:
U100EtG = 266 ng/mL
U100EtS = 166 ng/mL
This should have been performed by the testing lab with the lower amount reported* . Whether normalized or not the reading is low. After normalization is very low
and now we can come closer to determining possible low level sources that could have created EtG and EtS. This is the range where incidental, innocent sources, are most likely to be responsible.
It sounds like you have the printout in front of you. Check the time of the sample collection and also the time that the test was performed. The time interval is important.
It is unlikely that the products and food items you mention could have caused the reading, but will be considered.
Also, need to know the medications that you are taking.

Dr Skipper is a nice fellow and will probably respond but recommend that the information presented be clearly organized in advance as he functions as a paid consultant and understandably doesn't provide extensive pro bono
service. I do however recommend that you contact him as he is extremely knowledgeable and will hopefully provide a brief opinion.
