Can You Donate Blood To Those With A History Of Lymphadenitis?
Morning, are people who have had lymphadenitis allowed to donate blood? thank you
A person who has lymphadenitis is not impossible to donate blood, but it is necessary to have an examination by a doctor first to ensure that the person is worthy, namely by meeting the criteria for blood donation and also ascertaining the source of the cause of lymphadenitis.
The requirements for a person to be able to donate blood are
Age 17-70 years Minimum weight 45kg Blood pressure is neither high (hypertension) nor too low (hypotension) Not anemia or blood disorders (eg hemophilia) Having medical conditions diabetes, cancer, heart and lung disease, epilepsy, and other diseases transmitted through blood (eg HIV, hepatitis B/C/D) Have a history of drug and alcohol addiction
Lymphadenitis itself is a condition where there is inflammation of the lymph nodes (lymph), which can be caused by various factors, namely viral, bacterial, parasitic, fungal infections where some of these infectious conditions can be transmitted through blood transfusions such as miliary tuberculosis infection (which has been into the blood), HIV. In addition, lymphadenopathy caused by cancer is also one of the conditions that does not allow the person to donate blood
If you intend to donate blood, you can consult with your doctor first to ensure that you meet the criteria for donating blood, as well as to ensure that the cause of the lymphadenitis condition experienced by you will not be transmitted through blood donation procedures.
Hope it is useful
