Donating blood and organs

Patient: I am a type 2 diabetic and I was wondering if it’s alright for me to Donate blood or Organs?

Doctor: Thank you for your question. There are no contraindications for donating blood if you are a type 2 diabetic. Donating or gans on the other hand requires careful assessment of particular organs such as the heart and kidneys, as diabetes can lead to damage of these organs. Please be guided accordingly.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
