If loss of blood can lower blood pressure, can high blood pressure people dobaye blood?

The pressure returns: An otherwise healthy person with mild high blood pressure, or with moderate high blood pressure under control, should be able to donate blood as long as he doesn't have problems like anemia, hepatitis, hiv, recent travel to malaria countries, etc... After donating blood, a person's blood pressure can be lower but usually just for a brief time. The blood pressure goes back to where it was before.

See your Dr: Yes, high blood pressure can do that. So can a number of other pathological states. You need to be evaluated by your pcp. Best of luck to you.

Yes: People who bleed to death virtually NEVER have high blood pressure immediately prior to or at the time of death. You can take that idea to the bank!
