Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Daily low-dose aspirin no longer recommended as heart attack preventative for older adults

Aspirin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It relieves pain, reduces fever, and lowers inflammation. Also, low-dose of Aspirin has been widely used as a blood thinner for those who have a high risk of blood clots, stroke, and heart attack.

However, it is no longer recommended as a preventative for older adults unless they have a high risk of, or already have heart disease according to the new guidelines announced by the American Heart Association. That’s because Aspirin raises risk for bleeding as people age.

They now instead recommend a healthier lifestyle with a good diet, moderate exercise, and of course, no smoking as the first line of prevention of such diseases.

Do what you can do before getting medication.

Enjoy reading and think about what you can do and what you are doing to maintain or improve your health.
