I've never had an issue giving but LifeBlood told me they were going to take the pint plus 20 vials. That equivocates to 1.5 pints. I'm used to giving a "blood light" which is less than a pint since my weight is under 115lbs. The blood draw hasn't caused anyone exacerbations has it?
I take vitamins and supplements and plan to eat a hearty meal afterwards (my fave is Liver and Onions from Big Boy - after giving blood is the only time I eat this). Anything else that I should consider to keep my energy from tanking even worse than normal?
I'm just trying to be proactive.
