    donating blood






    in regards to donating blood to lower hematocrit, hemoglobin and rbc is it better to donate a single ever 8 weeks or is it better to do the double red blood cell donating every 16 weeks ? any thoughts

    And why would you want to lower your H&H levels for?

    because anabolic steroids increase you hematocrit, hemoglobin and rbc all of which, if raised can lead to serious health problems.

    Hematocrit is a derived measure of packed cell volume so donating double will decrease it more temporarily. Of course your body will compensate by increasing erythropoiten which stimulates RBC production in the bone marrow so the decrease will be quickly replenished. Since you have type A blood there is not as great a demand as type O. Idk that you will get any more benefit one way over the other. There is always a need for qualified donors as it saves lives, but unless your hct is very high (50% range) there really is no proof of a thereapeutic benefit to donating red cells.

    Yeah you would probably be ok donating double reds and seeing how much it lowers it. 43-46% is usu ok. Its not bad to be at the upper end of the range but 50ish is getting into the worry zone. Especially if you're on trt permanently. If not just donate after pct from your cycle.
