Hypoglycaemia – I have been told I am hypoglycaemic. Can I donate?

Hypoglycaemia means you have low blood sugar. It can occur with the treatment of diabetes, so if you’re diabetic please call us on 13 14 95 to see if you can donate.

If you have symptoms of hypoglycaemia which aren’t related to diabetes or another serious illness, you can donate as long as you eat a substantial snack two hours before you donate and drink plenty of fluids before and after.
