LOL, I love it! Those patients could probably use such a good sense of humor...maybe that'll show up in your blood too.
You could probably give a pint unless you are anemic, in which case that's a big no-no (and they wouldn't let you anyway). If you're feeling relatively well, though, they could probably use your blood no problem!
Thanks for the humor. Whether people with Crohn's can donate seems to depend on the blood bank. This discussion might interest you, although it's a few years old: http://www.cbbsweb.org/enf/2002/donor_immunedis.html
I had a co-worker that had MS and she told me that Dr's and blood banks refuse organs and blood of people with autoimmune diseases because they do not know what causes them yet. I don't know if this is true but I have wondered myself.
