Re: [IP] Re: blood donation-Barbara B. and Sue K.



I am in Canada and I called the Red Cross yesturday to see if I could get 
into the SIX HOUR line ups in Toronto to give blood.  I also asked about 
eligibility and they said that diabetics could most certainly give blood but 
to make sure that you are under a doctors supervision and would have to 
follow a different meal than normal (high protein) also to take along life 
savers and stuff to stop a low blood sugar but the lady I spoke to was very 
educated on diabetes and was very helpful to me.  I am going to wait for 
those lines to die down a little and I myself am going to give blood.  I 
hope that many will join me and donate blood to those who need it.
