Can a diabetic, donate a kidney.?

NO. DM is a contraindication to donation. But your generosity is profound. Wish we had more donors like you. Take care.
Probably not. It would not be a good idea to donate a kidney as, having diabetes yourself, your own kidneys are at risk of developing disease from diabetes in the long run. I doubt that any transplant programs would consider you as a donor.

Yes, but. The big picture matters more. How strong is the family history, how healthy otherwise is the donor, & how good is the match are issues that matter whole lot. Read more...
Yes. You are at a higher risk of developing diabetes and consequent kidney disease; but barring other factors (it is a long check list that transplant physicians will go thru to make sure), a family history of diabetes by itself does not preclude anyone from donating a kidney. Read more...

I was told I could donate a kidney to my aunt and then found out I have type 2 diabetes, can I still donate it?

No. Kidney donation from patients with diabetes is not considered as the quality of organ is suboptimal because of diabetes induced damage and more importantly patients with diabetes have high incidence of end stage renal disease and dialysis and may need transplant in the future. Read more...
Probably not. I would assume that would depend on how long you have had diabetes and how controlled you have been. Also the condition of the kidney. I do not feel that you would be the best candidate both for your future well being and the recipient's. I don't think i would want your kidney nor would i want to risk being a diabetic with one kidney but god bless where your heart is. Read more...
