Diabetes - Daily Aspirin Use

One of the five goals for the best diabetes care is taking an aspirin daily (as appropriate). Patients with diabetes that are of a certain age and/or have other chronic conditions (such as vascular disease) can benefit from taking a low dose of aspirin. Ask your doctor if you should be taking a daily aspirin.

Aspirin is thought to keep red blood cells from clumping together. When these cells clump together a clot can form, possibly causing a heart attack or stroke. When someone has diabetes, these cells can clump more easily and taking aspirin daily can reduce this risk.

High quality care for diabetes may include taking aspirin. Talk to your health care provider to see if taking aspirin is appropriate for your condition. This goal is part of the D5, five treatment goals created to make it easier for patients with diabetes and their health care team to focus on treatments that have the greatest health impact.

Talk with your doctor about how you're doing on your D5. Learn more at www.theD5.org.



The Data:

The bar charts and percentages below tell you how well Minnesota physicians and other health care providers help patients take aspirin daily if that is what they need. 

The average provider rating statewide is 99%. This means that nearly 10 out of 10 adult patients with diabetes met this treatment goal. For some patients that means taking daily aspirin therapy because they need it. For people with allergies to the medication or those on certain other medications, reaching this treatment goal means understanding why they should not take aspirin daily and noting that reason in their medical record. The percentages and bar charts below represent ratings for the care people received in clinics.

High provider numbers are a sign of quality care. Your provider may have a higher or lower rating depending on how many patients met their treatment goals. Small differences in these percentages don’t necessarily reflect the quality of your care. It is important to look at the larger differences and talk with your provider if you have questions or concerns.

This report is based on information from patient medical records for services received between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012.
