The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate no history of bicarbonate use, minor history of bicarbonate use, history of regular bicarbonate use or regular bicarbonate use, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as Heartburn / GERD / Acid Reflux.
