DEAR DR. GOTT: I believe I have damaged my kidneys with the excessive use of Excedrin over the last 30 years. My blood urea nitrogen level was flagged on my blood test with a level of 21. I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome several years ago, and I frequently have to urinate. I didn't realize the use of Excedrin was so bad until recently. I have completely stopped using it but now wonder if the damage is reversible. Is there anything I can do to make my kidneys healthier?
