Metadata[+] Show full item record
No. Current recommendations are that only patients with type 2 diabetes who have additional cardiovascular risk factors (age >40 years, hypertension, dyslipidemia, albuminuria, tobacco use) should use daily low-dose aspirin. (SOR C, based on expert opinion.) However, these additional risks are found in a large number of adults with diabetes.
