Does weed show up in a normal urine test?

Hi, can I answer your health question? Please type your question here...If I am 16 and smoke weed a couple times a month and my doctor wants to make me take a urine test to see if I am taking my new ADHD medicine and he finds the traces of weed can he tell my mom in the room?

It can be detected up to 7-45 days after intake. Don't worry they won't check for weed in routine urine examination.

They just see urine microscopy for pus cells or epithelial cells, protein, sugar, RBC, bile salts and bile pigment etc.

I think I answered your question if you have more questions feel free to ask.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

What would cause a seeming healthy middle aged woman to discolored/whitish looking urine for over a year now. Several test shows urine normal except for excess protein. Any idea what can be causing this? Let me add on some occasions the urine can have a normal look, but not many.
