I wanted to donate blood today and they didnt let me because me blood pressure was too low (106/64).
It was pretty frustrating, they wanted to make me drink salty stock (dont even know if chicken stock..) and of course I wouldnt drink that...(chicken or not) Then I had to explain to the doctor, why I didnt wanna drink it... He didnt have any idea about raw veganismus, as expected...so I felt like the week raw vegan who cant donate blood :( I probably gave a bad picture of veganisme...I'm so sorry for that.
Anyways, do you 811peeps have low blood pressure? I always had good results before I went lfrv and I'm doing lots of exercise. Today I had eaten like 8 nanas for breakfast and 850g of grapes for lunch, had drunk about 2+ litres of water. The blooddonation was at 16:30, and I was actually getting hungry, but I cant believe that this can be the only reason for such a low result. As a cooked vegan I used to have something like 120/70...
Do you think it could be related to 811 cause of the salt? (The doctor told me that the salt would raise my pressure...rather the sodium?)
Any comment or opinion on that welcome!
