    Bone profile
    Thyroid
    Lipids
    Plasma glucose
    FBC
    Crp
    Cardiovascular risk

    It will lower your HCT which is normally a good thing in this world. You'll be fine. It's replaced is about a day anyway.

    So the donation won't effect the blood results the doctor has requested. If there were to be any issues with any of them they would still show up

    Correct. Donating blood is a healthy thing for both you and society.

    No real impact to those bloods.

    Giving blood can impact the body's ability of balance. Light headedness is the most common side. Eating a cookie does nothing to solve this..urban legend. It is a side reflected from change in HCT level usually.

    If you cared about society you would join us on a run.

    Correct. You haven't altered anything but the volume, which you have mildly reduced.
