Observation: Antiperspirants, Aluminum and Kidney Disease

I often tell patients to read labels of products for warnings about kidney
disease. It turns out that antipersipirants say to "Ask your doctor before
using if you have kidney disease," so someone did. Presumably this is
because of the aluminum content, and there is a small (and probably
insignificant) risk of aluminum accumulation with decreased kidney function.
