    Donations of blood

    Man I went in for my normal donation of a pint and almost got rejected because my iron read at 2.0

    I have been on trt for about 4 years and I normally come back around 18.0 unless I'm on another compound.

    I'm just glad I got to donate before it got too high.

    Just a reminder people we need to donate our magic blood for the ones who are in need.

    That happened to me as well, only they sent me home. Took an iron supplement for a couple of days and went back, iron was good at that time. Now I just take iron for a few days before going to donate.

    So taking iron will drop the reading? I would of thought the opposite. Or is there a something to lower iron.
    They told me to stop taking whey protein. Lmao

    I'm lost. You were at 2.0 and needed to be 18.0?

    I was at 12.5 and needed to be min 13.0. Iron supplement brought it up.

    Ok so you meant to say twenty point zero, not two point zero?

    Unless the math there is REALLY odd...
