I intend to start donating blood this year and have a few questions in relation to Huel.
I consume 100% U/U Huel at 2000kcal per day. Is it safe to eat Huel before the blood donation? Will I be missing anything in the ~2 months recovery period by eating only Huel? Should I include any other food in my diet after donating blood?
Speaking as a regular blood donor, see what they say at your next donor session. If you’re lacking something then post here for advice, otherwise let your stress flood out into the blood bag and enjoy your post-donation high. It’s worth it.
I donated blood successfully. They only used the Copper Sulphate specific gravity test for estimating blood iron levels and there was no issue (though a pity that I will not get an actual value for blood iron levels).
I feel fine and hope Huel will help me be perfectly healthy (and not develop any deficiency) so that I can donate again in ~2 months.
