The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either past aluminum-based antacid use or aluminum-based antacid use, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Heavy Metal Toxicity

Antacids that contain aluminum are potentially dangerous.  They should not be freely used for a condition that will respond to an increase in water intake such as stomach ulcers.
