The Impact Caused If Blood Donors 2 Times A Month?
afternoon doctor, I want to ask if in the same month (1 month) blood donation twice can or not huh? if not, what impact will it have?
Hello, Dany Safa. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
In general, donating blood repeatedly is recommended to be given a minimum of 3 months. However, giving blood donors at different intervals can be made possible by adjusting to the health conditions of prospective donors.
Referring to the recommendations of the United States Blood Bank Association (AABB), the minimum time lag for giving blood in the form of whole blood components (whole blood) is 56 days. Shorter time lags can be applied to platelet donors.
Determination of donor time lag is based on the physiological process of forming blood components in the body. For example, the production of platelets and blood plasma takes place faster than the production of red blood cells. Therefore, health institutions authorized to allow platelet donors can be given more often. If donor donations are too frequent and violate the recommended time lag, the donor's body runs the risk of lacking donated blood components. Of course this can have a negative impact on donor health.
Do not hesitate to consult a doctor before making a blood drive. The doctor will conduct anamnesis and physical examination to assess the eligibility of prospective donor health. To enrich insight, you can read articles about blood donation.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
