Low-dose treatment with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) is widely recommended to type 2 diabetic patients as primary prevention against cardiovascular disease. High-dose treatment with cyclooxygenase inhibitors reduces urinary albumin excretion rate (AER) in type 1 diabetic patients with micro- or macroalbuminuria. Whether a similar effect on AER exists during low-dose ASA treatment, which may confound the diagnosis and monitoring of micro- and macroalbuminuria in type 2 diabetic patients, remains to be elucidated.
