Donating blood is one of the most selfless acts a person can do, but when you have a life-threatening illness such as adrenal insufficiency, there are questions as to whether you are allowed to donate blood or not.
Can adrenal disease patients donate blood?
The answer is complicated.
Some countries/territories allow blood donation from adrenal patients and others do not. It is ultimately dependent on the regional medical director’s decision of a particular organization.
