Diabetes or chronic kidney disease and drug screen

I was given a drug screen test yesterday at my Pm Dr regular appointment. I had been complaining about flank pain to my doctor and thinking it was maybe a kidney stone (which I do get often) He diagnosed it as costochondritis. I also am diabetic with chronic kidney disease. My question is, can that affect results of a drug screen? I've taken 2 before and no issues but since I was feeling that flank pain and I read a kidney infection can affect results of a screen was wondering if anyone had weird or false results with kidney issues or diabetes.? Just curious.
Have a magical day!

    I have never heard anything about it...whether diabetes or kidney disease can interfere with drug screening.
    Did you ask doctor?

    Keep us posted. I'd be interested in what you find out!
