curious if any body who is a diabetic is a registered organ doner?
I suppose that organs such as the pancrease wouldn’t be able to but other organs such as heart, lungs, eyes, etc?

Yup - I am registered - figured if the time comes they will just take whatever is usable…

Yes, when my dad passed they were able to use his eyes. I’m not really sure if they used anything else though.

I am registered. What is usable is usable :slight_smile:

I was just thinking about this the other day. I’m a registered donor, but that was before I developed diabetes. I haven’t had to renew my license yet and thought that I would take it off, but it is nice to know that there are others out there that are.

I was for a long time. When I moved recently though, they didn’t ask when I was getting a new driver’s license and I had forgotten myself… though when I have to renew it I will probably ask about it.

I am. hopefully they can find something useful

When I worked in the ICU, they would not accept organs from diabetics or anyone with any type of an infection. It’s been a while since I have been in the ICU…it could have changed since then.
