Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.I respect your concern on blood donation.

  • Definitely yes. A person who is suffering from hypertension (high blood pressure) can donate blood; provided his blood pressure is normal at the time of blood donation and he must not be suffering from other associated untreated comorbidities.
  • Those who have fluctuating blood pressure with irregular treatment and those who are suffering from other illnesses associated with hypertension better not to donate.
