Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as NSAID use — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
Have you used any of the older NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)? Examples include ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin), naproxen (Aleve or Naprosyn), and many others. Newer COX-2 inhibitors are asked about separately.
Possible responses:→ No
→ Minor use in the past only
→ Significant use in the past only
→ Currently using for up to 6 months
→ Currently using for more than 6 months
