Re: Any Aspirin Guidelines ?
If you are female, you might check out the recent study that indicated low dose aspirin had mixed effects on women's risk of stroke, cardiovascular disease and death.
You can read about the results from the Brighamandwomens.org website.
A quote from the above article:
"In March 2005, long-awaited WHS results demonstrated regular low-dose aspirin therapy reduced the risk of stroke by 17 percent, but did not decrease heart attacks or cardiovascular deaths among all women. However, in the subgroup of women 65 years and older, aspirin reduced the risks of developing overall cardiovascular disease, ischemic stroke and heart attack."
