Can I take Aleve or Motrin if I am a diabetic?

The only contraindications for NSAIDS, including ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) are asthma, aspirin allergy, CABG (coronary artery bypass graft) and NSAID allergy. Unless you are taking other products that irritate the GI tract, there is no reason for you to avoid these drugs.
