Nicotine Blood Test

A nicotine blood test measures the rate of metabolization of nicotine. This gives an indication of the possible success of using nicotine patches to tackle craving while a person is giving up smoking. Cotinine is the substance that nicotine metabolizes into before turning into 3-hydroxycotinine. If a nicotine blood test indicates a rapid metabolism of nicotine, the person is likely to experience more craving while trying to give up smoking. Nicotine tests can also be performed on urine or saliva.
