    The doctor took me of aspirin after a while: I was also taking clopidogrel and (If I remember correctly) ticagrelor. Right now I'm still on clopidogrel

    I’ve never been given it for T2, my late dad who was diagnosed with T2 in the early 90s was prescribed it as routine for T2s but was taken off it a few years later by GP who said they were taking everyone off daily aspirin as a new protocol, the only patients to remain on it were people who had already had a stroke or heart attack- for anyone else it was pointless and even dangerous.

    That is very interesting as I had no other heath conditions when I was diagnosed in 2008, and even though I was on it plus a statin up until 2015 when I developed angina, both meds seemed pretty pointless to prevent clogged arteries up to then !!

    Never mentioned I should take it for diabetes, perhaps it should have been as I’ve had/have heart problems now, taking it for that. I’ve given up fighting against meds, I’m defeated, I just take whatever they give me now lol

    No.
    I've never seen the need as my weight is normal and my blood pressure is normal.

    I was not prescribed Aspirin when first diagnosed T2, as I was already taking my alter ego Xaralto which is a anti coagulant.

    I have never heard of aspirin for stomach cancer. How long have you had stomach cancer? Do you think the aspirin made it worse, or just made it bleed? My son had stomach cancer. He took NSAIDS for a longish period for pain relief from injuries following a road accident. But never daily as a prophylactic.

    @Struma exolained here that he was taken off Aspirin after a large bleed.
    Much the same as me, I stopped taking Xaralto because I have bowel cancer that's bleeding from a large polyp.
