Medical professionals have been prescribing aspirin regimens to help people deal with their heart diseases or stroke and lead their life healthily. However, the drug may be safe when it comes to the disease but its side effect, in the long run, is definitely unthought-of. The people without any heart disease consuming the medication can actually outweigh the drugs’ benefits. Aspirin dose is prescribed to people to combat heart risks such as stroke & heart attacks and also to reduce the chances of bleeding in the brain at that time. The trials to check the efficacy and safety of the disease have also been carried out.
The study showed the people consuming low doses of aspirin to have 0.63% risk of bleeding in the brain and it was also found to be more when compared to the people not having aspirin. The people having Asian backgrounds and more toward the obese side plus less than 25 Years were found to be at greater risks. The daily low dose aspirin regimen is given to the old people as the drug has the ability to prevent clot formation in the arteries. However, the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology have a complete new guideline prepared. The guideline makes it clear that aspirin should not be prescribed to prevent heart disease for healthy, older groups who have no signs of heart disease or dealing with one.
Parallelly, a new study has shown that black Americans will not be lowered of the risks of heart disease or stroke with the practice of daily use of low-dose aspirin. The drug was found to be effective in the whites but not that efficient in the blacks as the genetic response on the drug was found to be different in both races. The researchers are working on gathering more evidence to prove the efficiency of aspirin based on race.
