When I was first diagnosed back in 2008 I believe that Aspirin was prescribed as a routine med for type 2 diabetes to prevent any cardio vascular problems. Ironically in 2015 I developed angina and had two stents inserted ! (Touch wood) I have never suffered any chest pain or complication since then. My question is do many of you take a daily Aspirin as part of your Diabetes management (heart condition or not) and how many of you have stopped taking it ? Reading the NICE guidelines I see that it is no longer routinely given to newly diagnosed Diabetes patients.
