Diabetes – I am diabetic. Can I donate?

If you have no complications from your diabetes such as eye, heart, blood vessel or kidney problems and your diabetes is well controlled through diet or oral medication, you will be able to donate.

If you require insulin to control your diabetes, call us on 13 14 95 to check your eligibility.

If, however, your diabetes is well controlled, you are free from complications, and you haven’t used bovine (cattle-derived) insulin in the past, you will generally be able to donate.
