Needed: Blood Donations
Date:2/6/2009

she added.

The American Red Cross offers these tips for folks ready to donate blood:

  • Eat a good breakfast or lunch featuring iron-rich foods such as red meat, fish, poultry, beans, raisins, prunes or iron-fortified cereal. Avoid fatty foods because fatty material in your blood can interfere with infection testing performed on donated blood. If that occurs, officials may have to discard your blood donation.
  • Drink extra water and fluids to replace the liquid you will donate, but avoid caffeinated beverages.
  • Wear clothes with sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.
  • Rest after donating, and enjoy a snack and a drink in the refreshments area.
  • For a day or so after a donation, rehydrate yourself by drinking plenty of fluids. Avoid strenuous physical activity or heavy lifting for about five hours after donation. If you feel dizzy or light-headed, lie down with your feet elevated until the feeling passes.
