I've given blood several years as a carnivore with a borderline hemoglobin. For the first blood donation as a vegetarian in 2010, my hemoglobin plummeted. I went home, took a iron tablet, eat beets, and swallowed a spoonful of molasses. The next day my hemoglobin rose to enable me to give. As a result, I reverted back to being a carnivore.
