UK ME Patients Facing Blood Ban

October 8, 2010

I’ve just read that people with ME in the UK will be banned from giving blood from 1 November. I also learnt from the article that people with MS or Parkinson’s Disease can’t give blood either.

This is a difficult issue, as of course if there is proof that a condition can be passed on by giving blood then this chance shouldn’t be taken. But is there enough proof of this for either of those three conditions? How do you feel about this, readers? I’d be particularly interested in comments from people with ME, MS or Parkinsons.
