Donating Blood/plasma

Donating Blood/plasma

Are you still able to donate blood or plasma when you are on DMD?

My local Red Cross is ok with my using Avonex or Plegridy, so they are fine HERE. Still, you might ask before you donate.

I have donated whole blood several times since being diagnosed. It was permitted by the Red Cross and I've had no issues afterward.
