Evaluating Risk Factors: Over-The-Counter Pain Medications

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as over-the-counter pain medication use — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

If you indicate recent pain medication use, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you used over-the-counter pain medications?
Possible responses:

→ Significant amounts

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either absence of OTC pain medication use or pain medication use, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Increased Intestinal Permeability / Leaky Gut

The overuse of pain medication can eventually lead to leaky gut syndrome.

Kidney Disease

Some non-prescription medications – especially painkillers – can potentially cause damage to the kidneys.  This includes traditional Chinese 'herbal' medications.
