in the state of AZ, who do you call to report a probation officer? My boyfriend was released from prison in October 2017 and is on IPS currently. He was arrested earlier tonight. for a diluted urine test. While in prison, he found out he is diabetic. Earlier in January he went to see a Dr about his diabetics. His levels are so out of wack in his body right now, he has been seeing a DR. and they still trying to get his levels under control. Long story short, we've been telling the probation officer, they need a different way, other than urine to test for drug use.. We offered to pay the cost, for a hair follicle test, to test for drugs, since his urine, for what ever reason doesn't have high levels of creatine. the creatine level in his urine is so low, the results come back negative but diluted. So tonight, he was arrested for not passing a drug test. When in fact, no drugs have been detected in his urine. We have no idea why the creatine is so low. Doctor is still doing blood work to figure it out.
His doctor should be able to write a letter to probation explaining the progression of his diabetes and any effects on his kidney function. There are rather quick and easy tests the docs can do to measure kidney function.
Creatinine is secreted at a fairly constant rate by the kidneys. A low creatinine level can be obtained by hydrating your body, because the near-constant amount of creatinine gets distributed among a greater water content. This is what POs think with a dilute sample. A low creatinine level can also be obtained if the kidneys are not functioning property. Kidneys that do not function properly make themselves known by eventually killing their human. (The kidney is typically eliminating toxic substances and when those substances are not eliminated they build up and cause serious, potentially fatal problems.)
His PO will have a supervisor, probably at the same office. You won't get very far reporting the PO for having the probationer arrested following a dilute UA.
Get that letter from a doc.
