When a person appears to be a risk of a heart disease, ischaemic sclerosis or a stroke often blood thinning medications are prescribed.
The first question I have been asked is whether blood thinners will help and also will they do further harm?
I would firstly, like to say that blood thinners are not safe to use as a prevention, where this is often suggested. As for the benefits when these conditions have been diagnosed, then it is important that you weigh up the benefits in comparison to the detrimental effects. Keeping in mind that the benefits are limited only to thinning of the blood with no improvement to any damage that may have occurred. Even if your decision to stay on the medication the advice in this article will be of benefit to you in supporting and improving your health.
