Re: [IP] can we give blood?

Yes - you can give blood, or at least the Red Cross will take a diabetics 
blood.  I don't remember the exact criteria - I think your insulin dose has to 
have been stable for the past three months. I've been donating for at least the 
past three years.  Donating might affect your A1C if you have blood drawn close 
to the same time you donate.
