Correct

- Osteoarthritis

- Ischemic stroke

- Rheumatoid arthritis

- Diabetes

- Fever

Rationale

-"Osteoarthritis", "Ischemic stroke", "Rheumatoid arthritis" and "Fever" are correct. Aspirin is taken for many reasons. Some common conditions for which a patient may take aspirin include cardiac issues such as acute coronary syndrome, myocardial infarction prevention, treatment for ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), and headache and arthritis pain management. Aspirin can also help reduce fever.
-"Diabetes" is incorrect, because aspirin does not affect glucose levels.
