Can a person with type 1 diabetes donate blood?
if not, why?

No, that blood will be infected with diabetes and the person receiving it will contact diabetes.

there are 2 reasons why a diabetic cannot donate blood! One of them is if you have taken animal insulin, which has not been available in the USA for about 10 years!

the other reason is no one, diabetic or not, who has lived in Europe within the past 10 years is allowed to.

Yes I have and I have had type one diabetes for 7 years.

I work for a donation center and yes you can donate if you have diabetes. With where I work at, if you've taken insulin made from animals then you can not donate. Not all donation centers have the same rules... so call them up before you go, just to make sure. Good Luck!

Unless you've taken bovine insulin from the UK before, yes, you can donate blood.

Here is the blood donation eligibility information from the center where I donate blood:

The rules will probably be about the same for whatever center you are considering donating at, but find their website and check to make sure.

Whoever said that a diabetic can't give blood because they'll give it to the recipient clearly doesn't understand what diabetes is. Ignore them. The only possible reason why they may not allow you to donate is concern for your health because donating may make you hypoglycemic.


I'm a (was) a long-time blood donor and I have type 1 diabetes. I "retired" just one donation short of 2 gallons donated.

I had to retire for reasons unrelated to diabetes.

Contact your local branch of the Red Cross. I know that you do need to have good control and not have taken bovine insulin at any time. Novo insulin (made from pork) is okay.


"Onyx" is wrong, wrong, wrong. Diabetes is NOT contagious nor infectious. There is no chance that another person could "catch" it from you.
