Makes sense of USPSTF recommendations
Loyal readers know I’ve been looking at this daily aspirin thing for quite some time. Read this, or this, and this. So when I learned about a new iPhone app I had to download it and enter my personal data.
The app says I should take low dose aspirin daily. I stopped taking aspirin a few years ago after a minor bleeding episode. I had bumped my shin, broke the skin and began bleeding. The bleeding took forever to stop so I stopped the aspirin. I’ve cut myself since and not had any difficulties coagulating.
Annual wellness visit is in a few months. I’ll show the app to my doctor and see what he recommends.
Great little app by the way.
