    Dont forget to give blood

    Thought i'd let you guys know i went and gave blood yesterday. This is something that is recommend you do every 3 months. It helps to keep your RBC from creeping into the danger zone.

    Give Blood and keep yourself healthy!

    Re: Dont forget to give blood

    I been donating double blood red cells every 3 months for like 3 years cause of my TRT but this past two weekends they rejected me cause of low iron, on the first place my hemoglobin used to get a little high (19-20), that's why my Doctor told me to start donating blood, but this has me worried, i need to talk to my Doctor about this.

    How do you donate once a month? Do you go to different blood centers? Where I donate they make me wait a certain amount of time before I'm allowed to donate again...

    Lol, same here. It's pretty cool. They send a news letter telling where all the donation sites are for the month.

    Re: Dont forget to give blood

    if you guys are on TRT dose (most of you anyway) donating just once or twice a year woudl suffice. It's when you start using things like dbol and EQ. EQ is notorious for raising RBC count to dangerously high levels.

    Yeah, with 100mg every week that is fine. Some of us have a script for 300mgs a week lol. Mine goes up decently, plus I get to save 3 lives for each donation. I am kind of a hero.....

    Re: Dont forget to give blood

    Guess I'm one of the lucky ones... My hemoglobin level always creeps up there in the danger zone if I don't donate. I should do a few double red donation to bring it down and then Just maintain but even when I called red cross to try to schedule one, the only drive doing it was on the far west side of Chicago and I aints gonna b gone down ther anytime soon! Ya her me!!

    I do have have a bad habit of waiting to long to go, 59 days goes by fast and I hate that ****ing harpoon needle! So really never look forward to going, but I do feel great afterwards. Plus helping to increase the superhuman population is a plus. Lol!

    Lol. The thing unique about Chicago is that all of our worst neighborhoods are within a couple miles of the nicest ones.
