Shuld I take baby aspirin if my LDL is 150?

Shuld I take baby aspirin if my LDL is 150?

Not necessarily: Your LDL (bad cholesterol) goal is based on your cardiac risk factors. So, a level of 150 may be fine if you are a healthy 21 year old marathon runner but too high if you've already had a heart attack. Baby Aspirin has different risks/benefits based on your age, gender, and health status. For women older than 50, the benefit may outweigh the risks to prevent stroke, but check with your doctor. ...Read more

Should I take baby aspirin even if already on plavix (clopidogrel)?

Probably: It depends on the indication, of course. Stents, especially drug eluting stents ("medicated" stents) which are one of the major indications for plavix, (clopidogrel) require dual anti-platelet therapy, thus Aspirin is routinely given with Plavix (clopidogrel) and Plavix (clopidogrel) alone is inadequate and risky. ...Read more

Side note: eating kale (vit K) with warfarin is ok too, as long as it is ingested at a consistent amount such that INR levels remain predictable on a given warfarin dosing regimen. ...Read more
