How important is it for a t2 person to be on a low dose of asprin regime? I used to take it and when I changed pharmacies long ago, I quit taking it. I do not mind it I just want some opinions here.

Was taking for years until I was put on coumadin. You don't want to take both, your blood will thin out too much.
