Aspirin just dilutes ur blood i.e, it makes it watery like/ it inhibits thickening of blood

Queryman is correct: aspirin has no effect on blood glucose whatsoever. I would like to correct a comment by another respondent. People very commonly refer to aspirin and a few other medications as 'blood thinners'. None of these substances actually thin the blood. Aspirin transfers its acetyl group to thrombocytes also known as platelets. This affects the activity of thrombocytes in an irreversible manner for their approximately 7 day life span. The result is a reduction of thrombocytes aggregation and agglutination which in turns reduces the probability of blood clot formation in arteries. Arterial blood clots are often referred to as 'white' as they are made up primarily of thrombocytes. Venous blood clots are often referred to as 'red' as they are made up primarily of erythrocytes or red blood cells. Thus a different approach must be taken to prevent arterial as opposed to venous blood clots. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR
