I am just curious on everyone's opinions on this, but at what point do you consider your hematocrit to be too elevated to blast ( mainly speaking to blast and cruise/ trt guys). Last bloodwork I had mine was 48.3, not sure if its on the rise, but most likely it is. How would you manage this other than donating blood( I've read that eating grapefruit daily may help, anyone here tried that?)
another question for those who donate blood on a routine basis, do you notice significant drops in ferritin levels? Mine got as low as 10, haven't had it checked since though. So how am I supposed to donate blood if it depletes my ferritin? Should I just not be too concerned with ferritin because keeping hematocrit in check is more important? Or is a hematocrit level of 48 perfectly fine to start a blast on?
thanks in advance to any responders
