Its the reason why drinking

Its the reason why drinking water is so good for you. It is also great idea to Take baby aspirin in the morning, and a baby aspirin and time released Niacin at night before you go to bed.  I also donate blood once a month when on cycle. :)

How are you able to donate

How are you able to donate every 4 weeks? Do you go to several different donation centers?

For the most part I would say every 8 weeks is sufficient and every four is unnecessary.

If you have a certain blood

If you have a certain blood type, you can give two pints worth through platelet donation. They take blood out of one arm, remove the platelets, and return the plasma to your body through the other arm. It's for type negative I believe. I'm over due for a donation due to work commitments...

Did you and Ziwi even watch

Did you and Zewi even watch the video? The doctors argument was that RBC increases from testosterone use is NOT dangerous and no bloodletting is necessary. It's when certain medical conditions increase white, red and platelets that health risks increase.

I am not saying I agree with him. Just saying you guys seem to have missed the point of the video or I am misunderstanding the nature of your guys responses.

He even talks about people who live at high altitudes with high RBC and living perfectly normal healthy lives without getting phlebotomy's or medication(s)

Sorry, Jumping in here late

Hey guys, I did watch the video, actually a couple of times.  I am on TRT and have been for 8 years now.  Started the gel, then the injections (self) then the pellets implanted in the hip.  I'm going back to the self injections though.  Anyway, my last blood test showed my overall T at 1366 (250 - 1100 acceptable range)) and my free T in 401 (35 - 155 acceptable range).  No wonder I been feeling so good.  I did have a an elevated HCT at 51.9 (37 - 51 acceptable range).  so, the video was of particular interest to me.  My family doctor opined that I should get a blood dump based purely on the .9 over the 50 ceiling.  I just think that many doctors are unaware really of the finer points on some of these specific medical issues.  I would be interested to see if any clinical studies come out on this.  There have to be thousands of guys dumping blood and maybe they don't need to be.  Donating to blood centers is one thing, but just being in the position of wondering if your blood is going to harm you, well that is something else.  If I find anything out on the testosterone induced high red blood count and its consequences (if any), I will let you all know.  Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
