    What is your concern here? Is it the effect your blood may have on others who use your donated blood? That is a moral question imo.

    Given your increased blood volume donating is not going to hurt you much unless you are competing professionally and have some must-reach goals.

    With that said, I would suggest you wait as you will have "more to lose" once you start blasting and effects may therefore be more pronounced. Also extending your cruising time should not have much of an impact.

    I am no expert. Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks for reading.

    You need to donate asap if they will even accept it. Thats too high, you may have to have a phlebotomist drain some off you. No point in blasting imho

    Well first and foremost, are you feeling lethargic? Headaches? Unusual joint pain? Dizzyness? Sweating a lot (more than usual)? Hard to catch your breath?

    And when you took the blood test, did you drink plenty of water prior?

    I think before you make a decision to do anything, you should definitely get retested. And make sure you had plenty of water before.
