Why have a check up when you're pinning?

most likely not mate. depends on what the blood test is for. if it's for test levels then yeah you're screwed but if it's lipids or a standard cholesterol test they'll just be looking at your blood lipid levels or because of symptoms from an illness they'll be looking for antibodies not test level. STI test and they'll look for those
 
they don't test for everything as its not economical, they just test for what they're looking for
 
what's the test specifically for?

for a standard check up they'll check lipid levels (heart risk factor),  liver function (incase you drink more than you said), blood sugar (diabetes) and maybe STI's and iron levels (heamochromatosis), and that's about it. 
 
unless you've complained of low libido they'll not test for testosterone levels as you having a floppy knob is not really a insurance or health risk

Steroids are very likely to affect cholesterol markers, giving an 'abnormal' reading. What a blood test wouldn't show is why your lipids are shot.
 
Your question is impossible to answer without more information.

good point lol
 
they'll not test for steroids but the steroids will have obvious effects on the things they do test for. which will just make them wonder wtf is going on

Depending on the steroids used health markers may or may not be off range. Powerful, non aromatizing androgens like tren will be worse for lipid profile, and liver enzymes should only be affected from orals.
 
But considering that cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death in first world countries, and consuming alcohol on a regular basis is extremely common, any doctor will be more than used to seeing bad lipid profiles and elevated liver enzymes. As long as they're not ridiculously off (much more than a life of eating crap and being lazy would justify) the doctor will probably just tell you to lay off the fast food and booze and do some exercise.
 
Of course, if you're like 6ft 250lbs 6%bf and show up in a tank top, that might just give you away.

They won't check testosterone in a routine ckekup.
They could look at your lipids and LFT (liver function test) results, note your physique and guess but in actual fact very few GPs know anything about anabolic steroids and their effect on test results so you're probably safe.

they will almost certainly tell you that although you're at less than 10% body fat, their chart classes you as obese or morbidly obese depending on how ****ing awesome you look!
