The article examines the advantages and disadvantages of aspirin use in people with diabetes. Due to indirect evidence from trials of populations who are at high risk of cardiovascular (CV) events, aspirin is recommended for the prevention of CV events in people with diabetes. One disadvantage of aspirin use is its association with high risk of intracranial and gastrointestinal bleeding. In the pros section, one trial revealed that aspirin use has reduced the risk of primary composite end point by 20 percent. One of which is peripheral arterial disease.
