Does giving blood help lower RBC

Does giving blood help lower RBC
How many people give blood to help lower Red Blood Cell count? IF so, how often should you give?

Answer:

Giving blood does effectively lower your Hematocrit (percentage blood that is RBC's), but the only reason that i could think of that a person would do that is if they were taking EPO and their crit was higher than 55...

Answer:

... Yes, as much as you want but it is good to have more blood because it will help your muscles grow more than if you had less RBC count.

Answer:

here's my take on donating blood while on cycle. i'm sure some uneducated fools out there will disagree with me, and offer no intelligent discussion, but here i go.
donating blood will reduce RBCS - which can be good, as AAS can increase your RBC count so much that your blood becomes to viscous, which increases the workload on your heart to pump the sludge.
you should get your RBCs measured at the doc's, should be cheap, then if they're to high, donate the blood to lower them (and this is free, as opposed to paying a doc to bleed you).
if you're donating blood, you should only be on testosterone, and within physiologic limits (reference range is 250-1200), which i realize is highly unlikely, but you don't want that blood going to a pregnant mother, or young child, then screwing up their development, do you?
oh, and for a pre-rebuttal to whoever disagreed with me before, they ask you about needle exposure when giving blood to screen out drug users who may have hepatitis, HIV, ect. EXPOSURE TO STERILE NEEDLES IS NOT A RISK FACTOR FOR DISEASE- exposure to dirty needles/others' blood is.
well, hope that helps, be responsible!

well, hope that helps, be responsible! exogenous testosterone and other aas MAY increase your rbc by 3-4 points over the course of a few months...in order for blood to become "viscous" and/or life threateningly sludgelike, your crit must around 55 percent or higher. the only way ive ever seen a crit that high is through the usage of EPO, which i dont think is a compound commonly used by bb's. so, in short, aas aren't going to dangerously elevate your rbc count 99.9% of the time, but i do agree that it is a good idea to have your blood levels checked by a doctor is you're feeling sluggish and lethargic on cycle.
an elevated hematocrit level is otherwise a POSITIVE effect of steroids, and increases recovery and stamina.

Answer:

here in the uk you are not allowed to give blood if you have injected drugs, including steroids, even once.

Answer:

here in the uk you are not allowed to give blood if you have injected drugs, including steroids, even once. If you tell them in the states your doing aas you will not be allowed to give here either. But in most cases like stated above theraputic levels aren't going to cause a issue. I give blood every 4 months to keep a clean system. I know of docs that try and give it every 2 months.
