The OneBlood Donor Portal is packed with new features to make it easier to track your giving and meet your blood donation goals.
The new iron level feature was highly requested by donors. Now you can track your pre-donation iron level each time you donate.
Have you ever had to delay donating because of low iron levels? You are not alone. One of the top reasons people are deferred from giving blood is due to low iron levels.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires women to have a hemoglobin level of 12.5 and men a level of 13.0 to donate blood. Each donor has their hemoglobin levels tested before their donation. This is to ensure that your iron is at a high enough level for a blood donation.
Your iron levels can fluctuate daily. So it’s a good idea to boost your iron levels through iron-rich foods before you donate blood or platelets.
After your donation, you can access your health and wellness pre-donation check-up results which include your level through the donor portal. These results will show up about 48-72 hours after donation.
