I am bummed because I was not able to donate blood today. I look forward to this every 3 months or so because this is my one way of giving back to the sick and vulnerable, the reason I could not give blood today was because my Hemoglobin was only 10.6 and for those that don't know the normal range for females is 12.1 to 15.1, in addition I have been having dizzy spells and this explains this as well. I was in the doctors office just this last Friday, not 5 days ago and I neglected to tell the doctor of the dizziness thinking it was not a big deal and now I guess it is. I have had low iron issues in the past which have been resolved and now I need to figure out what is causing this issue, how naive of me not to mention this to the doctor. Well I have since taken my first step I have contacted the dr's office to advise, lets hope all is well.
