Can doctors test for THC at prenatal visits without informing you first?

Can doctors test for THC at prenatal visits without informing you first?

They CAN do anything: Whether it's ethical is another story, and whether it is legal depends on what state you are in. Doctors do many tests without explaining the details to their patients, but those tests don't generally have the legal potential to cause harm as drug testing does. Some states (but not California, as far as I know) DO require testing of pregnant women, typically at childbirth. ...Read more

Why do so many doctors on Health Tapp recommend NAAT tests for HIV testing when HIV professionals recommend the 4th gen test as a better test.

Why do so many doctors on Health Tapp recommend NAAT tests for HIV testing when HIV professionals recommend the 4th gen test as a better test.

It depends...: You need to read the context of each question. Which test is "better" depends on the clinical situation. Indeed 4th generation (antigen/antibody) tests usually are sufficient and should be the usual recommendation. But NAAT for HIV RNA or DNA (in addition to antibody testing) is proper when the risk is especially high or if there is clinical suspicion of acute retroviral syndrome (ARS). ...Read more
