<< < I asked at a local blood drive whether diabetics could donate blood and 
 they said no, because of harm to the recipient and to me.  They told me they 
 didn't want to risk anything and that taking blood from me would upset the 
 way the insulin was working in my system.  I would love to be able to donate 
 blood--help!! who is right?>> >>
In Fort Lauderdale, Fl---as long as you are a controlled diabetic----they 
will allow you to donate blood.     Dianne
