What do blood tests check for? I have a friend who has to get regular blood work done to check his kidneys and liver. Im worried that theyre going to fin pot in his system. Can that kind of blood test show pot?
Drug : Drug testing is very expensive. It's not routinely done because of the expense. (in fact, they way laboratories do drug testing for employment screenings is to take a small amount of blood from all the people they're testing and mix them all together and just do one test on the mixed sample. If the mixed sample is clean, they know everyone is clean and don't test individuals.) furthermore, no one can test you or your friend's blood for drugs without permission. It's considered an illegal search. Unless your friend has given specific authorization to be tested for drugs, the doctor or lab cannot perform the test. If they do, the avvo legal forum is thataway =====>. ...Read more

I have 4 "tiny" stones 2 in each kidney and a very small cyst. I get bad kidney pain sometimes. Can this be caused if stones aren't in ureter?
No: Non-obstructing stones or a small cyst will not cause pain in the kidney. Kidney pain typically results from distention of the renal capsule when the stones move into the ureter. Pain usually occurs during acute obstruction. Cysts in the kidney only cause pain when there is hemorrhage into a cyst or very rarely do they cause blockage of the drainage from the kidney. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
