Blood Needed for the Red Cross


Red Cross centers across the country are calling for much needed donations after the disaster of Hurricane Katrina. Did you know that as a diabetic you can still donated much needed blood to the Red Cross? Yes you can donate but you must follow a few guidelines. However, if you can't donate much needed blood, think about donating money to the Red Cross.

1. You have your diabetes under control. Your initial dose of insulin hasnít changed in the last two weeks. Also, you havenít used insulin made from United Kingdom cows since 1980. Type 2 diabetics can also donate if on medication


2. You are in good health. If you have a cold or on antibiotics you canít donate. You must weigh at least 110 pounds and be 17 years old. Once at the facility a mini physical will be taken to see if you are eligible to donate.


3. Your hemoglobin is okay. As a diabetic your hemoglobin count needs to be at least 140 to donate. It would be a good idea to eat a lot of iron rich food at least a week before donating.




Remember there is a severe shortage of blood. Call your local Red Cross and see what you can do to alleviate this shortage. Also, see what else is in need for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
