        Your A1c and general blood sugar management
        The American Red Cross does not list a specific A1c or blood sugar level requirement for those with diabetes to be eligible.
        That being said, blood with higher levels of glucose simply doesnít maintain its quality during the storage period compared to blood with a normal glucose level.
        This doesnít mean you need perfect blood sugar levels to donate, but if youíve been struggling with diabetes management and your A1c is well above 9 percent, or your blood sugar is over 200 mg/dL at the time of donating, you may want to wait until youíve been able to bring your blood sugars down into a healthier range.
        You will not have to prove your A1c or even your current blood sugar level at the time of donating, so itís really up to you to be honest, and let the American Red Cross professionals determine if you qualify during the screening process.
