Can I Donate Blood At 35 Celsius?
Hello. I Alysia would like to ask, if someone has a history of hemophilia plus anemia, can blood be donated but with a body temperature of 35 degrees Celsius ??
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically a woman must have a hemoglobin of at least 12.5 g / dL and a man must have a hemoglobin of at least 13 g / dL to be able to donate blood. Therefore if you have anemia (your hemoglobin is less than 12 g / dL for women and less than 13 g / dL for men), you will not be allowed to donate blood.
Regarding hemophilia, this disease actually does not disqualify you to make a blood donation. However, usually the blood donation site will be more reluctant to draw your blood (and you can be rejected for this reason too), because of the possibility of prolonged bleeding if you have an injury on your body (needled by a needle to draw blood). The risk of you experiencing hematoma or bleeding under the skin also becomes very large if you have hemophilia. Therefore, consider carefully before you decide to donate your blood (even if you do not have anemia) and consult your doctor first if you still want to donate blood.
Regarding your body temperature, measurements must be done correctly. When your body temperature really reaches 35 degrees Celsius then you are called experiencing hypothermia. You will not be in a healthy condition as usual, but you will experience a variety of symptoms such as chills, speech disturbance, your breathing slowing and shortening, your pulse will weaken, your body's concentration and coordination ability is disrupted, you will feel very tired and sleepy , and awareness disorders can also occur. Re-measure your body temperature with a thermometer that has been properly calibrated and measure it correctly according to the instructions on the thermometer packaging.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
