Osteoporosis – I have had a bone density scan confirming I have osteoporosis. Can I donate?

Yes, but you can only donate either blood or plasma.

Currently, we don’t know how collecting platelets from people with osteoporosis affects their bone density. That’s why, as a precautionary measure to protect your health, you won’t be able to donate platelets.

If you have any questions, please call 13 14 95.
