Hi.

Does anyone know if Type 2 diabetics can give blood?

Thanks

You can do the online-donor check here, anonymously: http://www.blood.co....r-health-check/

Alternatively, if you look round the site, there is likely to be something about diabetes, but it's not mentioned on this list of reasons not to donate: http://www.blood.co....ant-give-blood/

I've tried that but they ask people on any medication to call them. I'm on diabetes tablets but will call them to find out more. Just thought someone on the forum may know more about this.

Thanks for your reply
