Anemic from donating blood??????
Have just donated for the 18th time on Sat. Someone told me you can become anemic if you donate blood for a long time.

Is that true? Do you know of people where it actually happened?

Herc, you can definitely become anaemic from donating too much blood – there is no question about it. Good luck.
