      I have been donating blood for 5+ years, every 2 months on the dot! Even if mid cycle. I know I know but for my health I do it and if I sacrifice a bit of gear or elevated blood levels of them, who cares.

      I donít tell the truth when I answer the questions of course. My Bp has been as high as 150/90, my hemoglobin has come in at 19 and I have never been turned away. This is with Red Cross.

      So after climbing the corp ladder, I got a supervisor at Vitalant who accepted my Dr's prescription and authorized a one time draw. Vitalant has taken over most of my region for donations. Red Cross referrers you to Vitalant for special donations. You just cant walk in anywhere and donate. Doesn't work like that here. Vitalants current rule in PA is if your to high or to low, they wont take you without a prescription. Also, if your BP or pulse is to high they wont take you. That being said, I was told that in May, Vitalant in PA will be moving to a completely new platform, and they will take you without a prescription, even if your hemoglobin / hematocrit levels are high. The way I understand it, ever state has its own set of rules...go figure

I recently had blood work done and like usual my hemoglobin / hematocrit levels are high, thus the script for the Phlebotomy. Anyone else running into this issue? Ive been working with this practice of almost 7 years now, and really like them. Hate the thoughts of trying to find another TRT Dr. Feedback is greatly appreciated
      Sounds like you got it sorted, but just a thought any General Practitioner can order blood work and see that your hematocrit is too high. Before you change TRT docs might be worth a discussion with a GP and see if they can't write the phlebotomy script if you have any more trouble down the line. I'm in Texas so fully understand there could be different sets of rules.

      Glad you got your phlebotomy taken care of. Honestly it does suck that they throw the blood away.

      With regular donations 4 times a year, or every 56 days (earliest you can), you can usually avoid your levels being too high if that's a common problem.

      My doc tried to give me a order for therapeutic phlebotomy with a hemoglobin at 17.5 Therapeutic Blood Draw, went to Red Cross with 18.7, just said it was elevated, took it no problem. They break down the whole blood typically anyway.
