    I give blood every year. I recieved my usual letter through, asking me to donate blood again.

    Can I give blood while I'm on CD?

    I thought I would ask because I certainly don't want to harm anyone who may use my blood in the future. I want to help people by giving blood, not harm them! :eek:

    Answer to this greatly appreciated. :)

    I hope I can - I like to do my bit, and giving blood makes me feel I am doing something positive for others.;)

    Thanks in advance :D

    No you can't give blood on CD, out ketone type make up I think makes it unsuitable.

    I was really disappointed too, but cest la vie. In a few months I can donate again, and you can too!

    Wow that's an interesting thought. I never thought about whether or not our blood is suitable for donation during CD.

    Thanks Lexie - I wasn't sure, but had a feeling keytones would have something to do with it.

    What a shame, I wont be saving any lives this year :(

    How long is it until we can give blood, only when we have finished the diet, or can we do it whilst moving up the steps???
