    Does anyone know if its safe to give blood whilst on SS?

    I could always contact the blood service people, but wondered if anyone here has any experience.

    I don't think it's allowed but I'm not 100% sure.

    No. Sorry, but you can't give blood on a VLCD.

    Rose is right - you are not advised/allowed to give blood on SS this is because SS changes the viscosity of your blood.
