hypothyroidism and plasma donation

hypothyroidism and plasma donation. Can I be rejected to donate if I have an underactive thyroid and have to take Synthroid on a daily basis?

Re: hypothyroidism and plasma donation

Sort of the wrong section for this question, but I can answer it. Since it's a replace med, generally you can donate blood and likely plasma, too - however you have to be in a normal range and have no other medical conditions.

Call your local hospital or whoever you wish to donate with to ask for their specific practices on it.

Ok...thanks. I was searching and this board came up and I put the question before I paid attention to the section. Ooops. I never had a problem in the past donating while on Synthroid, but, I am a first time donor in NM.
