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.
