No there is no specific test that I am aware of.
Are you taking methotrexate ( MTX) for rheumatoid arthritis (RA)?
Recent studies suggest that current smokers do not respond as well to MTX compared to non-smokers. Studies suggest that it would be worth giving up cigarettes if you are going to embark on a course of MTX for RA.
Ex smokers seem to respond as well as non smokers. All the best.
