Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as aluminum-based antacid use — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
Have you used aluminum-based antacids? Examples include Maalox and Mylanta.
Possible responses:→ No / don't know
→ Minor use in the past only

→ Currently using, for up to 6 months
→ Currently using, for more than 6 months
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.
