Shit, ketsugo, that post of yours IS informative. I knew they tested for HIV and Hep A-Z and if you've had sex with mad cows or been to a few worrisome countries.

I did not know they also worried about our blood being too thick, too red, whatever else they worry about. I did note your comment about a doctor's note might solve that, I just like to minimize my exposure to doctors Seems like our high octane stuff would be desirable for sick ppl, like Red Cross could dilute it to their specs, but I think too much.

Wondering now if some of the non-Red Cross places are quite so strict.

I wonder too. When you donated did they sit you infront af a PC with literally a hundred questions , mostly multiple chose requiring you to elaborate on certain . " have you taken multi plus iron " , red meat . Then they try to " trick you " lmao have you ever paid for sex" , " have you ever utilized a prostitute , " or have you ever sold your body for sex or accepted fee for sex act"

I was thinking too that people with thin or " low iron " would benefit too"?

However I'm thinking that they just pool some samples together through huge filtration system .

You guys are thinking way too hard about donating. My iron levels are high. The only thing they turned me away for is high bp. As for the computer questions, never admit to steroid/needle use, as for the rest, use common sense. They filter the crap out of this shit. Advice is don't donate while sick and don't donate within 24 hrs of asprin use. Outside of that I walk in routinely and donate while on TRT (year round) and even tren in the summer. Helps get my hemotocrit down.

Yes, good advice. This is exactly what I do to. Donating helps bring down my high iron too.
