low-dose aspirin for MOST adults with diabetes
The American Diabetes Assoc now recommends low-dose aspirin for MOST adults with diabetes. Diabetics have a two to four times higher risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.
We used to think that aspirin wasn't as useful for preventing heart disease in diabetics. But recent studies suggest that aspirin is even MORE beneficial for diabetics than nondiabetics.
Recommend aspirin for diabetics over age 30 with any of the following risk factors...obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, smoking, or a family history of heart disease.
