I've donated blood in the past through the American Red Cross, but when I went to donate it asked me if I have ever taken insulin that came from a cow or pig. I didn't give blood that day.
I remember seeing a girl at the diabetic camp that I went to who had a shirt on saying "Pigs are precious" and I asked her about that and she told me that's where her insulin came from. That shirt stood out to me, but I can't even remember if my insulin came from pigs.
Here's my history. I was diagnosed in 1980 & used to take Lente & Regular insulin produced by Lily. I don't have any other type of information about the insulin itself. I don't know if my insulin switched or I started out on human insulin.
I'm scheduled for another donation tonight & I need to know if anyone can give me some input as to whether I'm okay to give blood or not. If anyone was diagnosed about that time & knows what type of insulin they were on or if anyone has had problems with donating blood I'd love to hear it. Thanks everyone !!!
