If I get a blood test done would the lab be able to tell if I'm a smoker(cigarrettes) ?

Would the lab be able to tell if I smoke if they are not looking for it?

  • I don't think so. Are you talking about prenatal tests? I don't think they test for that. Your doctor might ask and it's best to be honest. If he smokes he might not notice but if he doesn't he'll probably smell it on you.

  • Only if they are specifically screening for the ingredients (nicotine) contained in cigarettes.

  • If they are looking for it specifically then yes, they would be able to tell.
