Question: Hi there, I am just curious and wanted to know......
My councillor has told me I need to go and see my Dr and get a full blood count test done asap. I do meth and want to know if this will show up in my blood test please? And if so how can I flush it out before going for the test please?

Brief Answer:
A blood count won't show meth.

Detailed Answer:
A blood count won't show meth. It's unlikely to show even bad consequences of meth. Urine tests can slightly be flushed, but blood tests cannot. You cannot take a blood additive the way bleach, or inhibitors can be added (if they don't see it) to urine tests.
BUT. To get the best results from a physician, you need to give them the right information. If you had chest pain and they didn't know you were taking a powerful stimulant, they would say a 30's female Couldn't Possibly have a Heart Problem (or stroke or very high blood pressure, or vasoconstriction or.. you get it....).So you need to tell about meth to your physician.
Hope this was helpful, we can do follow ups on lots of other info.
