Playing Sports After Blood Donation
Depends: High blood pressure should be managed before playing high intensity sports (like football) to prevent short and long term cardiovascular complications. See your doctor for recommendations on lowering it and for clearance to play. They may need to do more of a work up to determine the cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Blood pressure is 166 over 100. I am 6 foot tall and 95kg no smoke or alcohol and play a little sport regular. I mostly watch my diet. Should I worry?
YES: The first thing to do is to get a home blood pressure kit. The one you put on your upper arm, not the wrist. Usually people get the battery-powered unit which can be used without another person. Take numerous readings at different times on both arms. Record all these and discuss with your Dr. Modern BP meds are easy to take, safe, not expensive. Besides exercise and diet, consider a statin and aspSee 1 more doctor answer
Every time I play a sport my big toes on both feet become sore and I have blood under the skin and nails. The nails become black and I can't feel them?
Too tight shoes?: It could be that your toe box of your shoes is too small and you are therefore damaging the toenail which bleeds, then becomes black and ev will fall off.
I did these tests, what dose the result mean? Anti-hbs 39.71 ml reactive. Anti-hbcll 0.72 s/co nonreactive. My last blood donation wasn't accepted.
Possible reason: My guess is that you have been immunized against hepatitis b which is the anti_hbs. You have antibodies against a protein on the surface of the virus; this is a normal response to the vaccine. You don't have the core antibody which is what we see after infection (anti hbc) if you were recently vaccinated you should wait at least 4-6 weeks before donating blood.See 1 more doctor answer
Now or Later?: While donating, person can get sweaty, nausea, dizzy...and may vomit or faint--a stress reaction to needle poke. Later, vessel can get tender, hard, red--can indicate thrombophlebitis--irritation/clot in area or (tiny) potential for infection. Reactions VERY uncommon. A VERY safe procedure and highly encouraged!
Yes!: Donating blood is one of the best things men can do for their health. This is because iron is a pro-oxidant, increasing risk of heart disease & cancer. Donating blood reduces our iron load. One study found men who donate blood once a year had an 88% lower risk of heart attack! it also lowers risk of several types of cancer! See http://blog. Lef.

Contact blood center: It would be prudent to call your blood center where you donated blood. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining the rash.
Not mixed well: Probably portion of your blood not mixed with anticoagulant in the tube.
Rate of flow.: Blood will clot if there was trouble placing the needled in the vein and either damaged tissue (containing tissue factor) is in contact with the blood or blood flow is very slow. The anticoagulant is mainly in the collection bag, so the blood must flow fast enough to reach the bag before it has time to clot.
Hand exercise: Get a soft rubber ball and exercise your hand and forearm by squeezing it many times each day- over the course of weeks your muscles will get stronger and in the process your blood veins will enlarge as well. Short term trick is to warm the arm with warm compresses to increase blood flow and dilate veinsSee 1 more doctor answer
Not dangerous: It is common to have a small clot after from the intravenous site. This will resolve on its own and not associated with any adverse effects as long as it is small and localized to the site where the needle is placed, there is no redness or pain/tenderness along side the vein that was pierced.
Healthy before blood donation but day after have a cold and a massive headache. What does this mean?
Blood donation: How much donated, dehydrated, low hemoglobin or picked up a cold virus...??
If I passively smoked marihuana ca. 1 day before blood donation, could it be harmful for a patient who receives my blood?
Blood drive rules: Restrictions regarding blood donations are in place for safety and many patients who use prescription drugs cannot donate. Recreational drugs actively present in body are an additional prohibition. Do not really know what you mean by passive smoking, unless you refer to someone else nearby and you merely encountered the fumes. Doubtful anyone would suffer from this.See 2 more doctor answers
How will I feel during the few weeks after blood donation because I have medical exams and I have to study as well and I am afraid to be so dizzy?
Drink plenty of: Fluids to compensate for lost blood volume. If you are that concerned, don't donate.
Blood donation: You don' have to do special effort. Nature or your body makes it up. 2million red cells are produced in a second. For volume or plasma loss, you can drink plenty of water, juices, soups or liquids. Thanks.See 1 more doctor answer
