If you indicate recent anti-inflammatory use, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
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

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate no history of NSAID use, history of NSAID use or using NSAIDs, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can damage the lining of the stomach.

... and also reduce your risk factors for:
Alzheimer's Disease

Research has shown that regularly taking NSAIDs reduces the risk of developing Alzheimer's Disease.
