Donating blood is good for all FILIPINOS. It benefits us all including non filipinos. Ang question ko lang, how good and realiable are our blood banks? From drawing the blood, storing them and distribution.

ok lang ba to donate blood even with hypertension?
no other complication, just hypertension?
think that those with hypertension can have better blood quality by donating blood. because the bone marrow makes new red blood cell ?
please correct me.

that is not true, there is no correlation between erythropoiesis and hypertension.
and it does not follow that by donating blood the high blood pressure will subside, Numerous factors interplay that will bring about a decrease/increase of blood pressure from a high pressure state or from even a normal level.

If you'd be donating blood better do so in a hospital setting; the donated blood gets processed faster and will be used readily in an aseptic environment.

peace!

agreed that it's good to release a pint of blood every 3 months or so. but what if red cross won't accept your donation? what other means are there for bloodletting?

If Red Cross does not accept your donation then that means either there's something wrong about you (sick,fever, colds, etc.) or your blood (HIV +, Hepa B carrier, etc.). Have yourself checked first. Cheapest way to do so is to attempt to donate blood in an institution like a hospital with its own blood bank. They screen your blood first before drawing blood from you..

peace!

Every three months is fine, in fact yun ang advisable (if you would notice, merong board sa Red Cross, that they update monthly, stating the month kung kailan ka na pwedeng magpakuha uli ng dugo, e.g., kapag nag-donate ka ngayong September, yung nakasulat sa board is something like: "Your next visit will be on "December", parang ganun...).


Nice avatar, by the way... Hehehhe! Ikaw ba yung nasa avatar mo? Ganda naman ng nape...

Been doing that everytime I donate blood, hehehehhe! On your second bottle, you can actually feel the rush of alcohol in your body, heheheh!

very good feeling talaga to donate ng blood kasi nakakatulong ka na sa iba natutulungan mo pa ang sarili mo to produce new blood... kasi sa mga guys naman walang monthly period eh... lolz

regular din ako nag donate ng blood before nung hindi pa masyado busy pero i intend to start again.. sabi sakin before sa st lukes its ok to donate every 3 months at nakakatulong nga daw to clean the blood in your system...

just an idea.... why not a blood letting drive by mtc members? worthy cause d b?

I used to donate faithfully for 10 years or so like 3 times a year and then I stopped. I haven't donated for the last 5 years but I was thinking of doing it again. I was discouraged because I found out that when many blood donations were destroyed after it's shelf life expired. I still believe it is a worthy cause to support.

Actually, I donated a few years ago for ROTC since I was part of the Medic Corps in ADMU.
But I kept on telling my officer that I had consumed alcohol the night before so my blood
would be pretty much useless.

In any case, I've always wanted to donated blood again but I've been drinking a lot of medicine,
some to lower cholesterol. So how do I know if I can qualify as blood donor? And how often can I give?
I smoke rin so would that mean that I can't donate? By the way, my blood type is AB, don't know if it's
AB+ or AB-.

Maybe someone elaborate if I can? After all, it is free to donate. Thanks.

The first time I donated blood was when I was in First Year college when I was in ROTC! Ever since then I have donated blood ever since. However, there was this one time that I was willing to donate blood but I was not allowed to primarily because I lacked sleep..and indeed donating blood during that time was dangerous!

Anyway, I am willing to donate blood now, why not? When and where should I do so?

Thanks for the info and Take Care!

go to the Red Cross office nearest you. they will screen your blood and if you pass their tests, you get to donate. the good thing about being a red cross donor is that you would be able to "use" your donations in the future in case of hospitalizations of your family. it would be easier to get access since you already have a "credit" balance in their blood bank ( of course, you have to pay for it).

i was grateful for this fact when my dad was hospitalized. being a donor, i had no problems getting several bags from the local red cross.

i just checked the red cross website, i saw that they do not have any office near my place. I am in mandaluyong, do you know any office/hospitals that are red cross accredited that accepts donations?

There is one in Pasig, near Kapitolyo in Shaw Blvd., you wont miss it, just right across the SSS branch there...

Anyway, I have a RedCross Donor card to fill, but not until March...
