    Donate blood and aspirin

    So I went to donate blood not too long ago and they told me that my blood was extremely sick. It was so thick and it took three times longer than usual, maybe four times longer than usual to donate blood. I was looking at my blood as he was filling up the bag and it was very slow and thick.

    Should I be taking a low-dose baby aspirin on a daily basis?

    Some people do have naturally thicker blood but with others it can be caused by a medical condition. You need to see a doctor to figure out which category you fall into. Last thing you want is a blood clot. The baby aspirin will help a little but not fix anything. A doctor will probably give you Warfarin or Plavix and the positive regarding that is you often only need to be on these meds for a few months to fix the problem. Once again, the aspirin is helpful but not a fix, you need to see a doctor. Remember that thick blood could be nothing or it could cause blood clots. Blood clots lead to heart attacks and strokes. Not worth the gamble. Good luck.

    Believe it or not aspirin won't help much with this...AND, if you have taken most donation centers will not allow you to donate.

    1. Hydrate hydrate hydrate
    2. Vitamin E
    3. IP 6 - 2 caps 2x a day
    4. 1 Lactoferrin a day
    5. 1 Biocurcumin a day
    6. 1 tsp cod liver oil

    and of course keep donating blood.

    How hydrated were you? If your hemoglobin is too high they won't let you donate...so it obviously wasn't that high. You done any lab work to know what's really going on? Otherwise you have no clue if you need it or not

    No lab work. And yes, you are right about the hemoglobin. If it was too high, they would not let me donate. Perhaps I was a little bit dehydrated?

    That'll do it man. I slug water before and after I donate. Always a good idea

    It interferes with clotting, that's for sure... a doc just stitching up a tiny wound on you will notice the difference. Does it actually thin the blood tho?

    Another thing I wonder is if low dose alcohol consumption (couple drinks/day) would actually be a healthy choice for those of us with high hematocrit. Seems like this would've come up as a question before but I got no memory of that one...

    Go to a doctor. Once again, if your blood is thick, aspirin will not prevent blood clots. Blood clots can cause heart attacks and strokes. Aspirin is preventative, it will not fix the thickness of his blood at this point. That head trainer from the show "The Biggest Loser" had a blood clot which caused his heart attack. He barely got to the hospital in time. He's now on anti-clotting meds and fine. With decent insurance, those meds are very cheap. Be safe, not sorry. Good luck, man.
