Well...I am one of the hurt blood donors. There is a lot of talk that giving a blood for donation is not harmful for your health and you can do this safely for many, many years without complication in functioning of organism.
I suspect that because of giving blood once for 3 months caused some autoimmune conflicts and level of my hormons grew from TSH=1,6156 in September 2011 to TSH=5,150 in December 2013. Now it's TSH=3,810 ater taking for 3 months Levothyroxinum natricum 25.
I feel in love in a idea of giving for sick people blood and I even signed up to bone marrow donors bank and I as accepted internationally, but unfortunately I've got letter with that positive message in time of being diagnosed with hypothyreosis
Well, in 2011 I've got a thick braid, beautiful hair and in the time when I started giving a blood from March 2012 to August 2013 (fifth and the last time) I lost thousands of hair and then I found out about hypothyreosis.
Is it possible that blood donors or bone marrow donors can suffer serious consequences of blood giving idea?
