Use of blood-thinning drugs among older adults is associated with higher rates of complications related to the presence of blood in urine, including emergency department visits and hospitalizations, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The dangers of blood-thinning drugs are widely underestimated. Even the use of aspirin, which is commonly thought of as a safe “miracle drug”, carries severe risks. For example, a recent study found that elderly people who take daily aspirin tablets after a heart attack or stroke are at far greater risk of potentially fatal internal bleeding than originally thought. Published in The Lancet medical journal by scientists at Oxford University, the study suggests that more than 3,000 patients die every year in the UK from long-term use of this dangerous drug.
