Can Smoking Affect Urine Test Results?
So, is there a relation between smoking and urine test? I need the advice, thanks?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Cigarette smoke contains many compounds that are toxic and carcinogens that can cause damage to human body cells. Some of these compounds are carbon monoxide, nicotine, benzene, tar, hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, arsenic, cadmium and ammonia. You can read more here. In contrast to illegal drugs, none of these compounds can reach the urine (urine), so if a urine test is performed, no substance can be detected.
However, cigarette smoke has an effect that can damage the walls of blood vessels, including kidney blood vessels. This happens if the body is often exposed to cigarette smoke. Causing a disruption in kidney production, so that the urine test looks more concentrated color.
Thus hopefully useful.
