    Is it ok to donate blood whilst on cd? I thought I saw somewhere that you shouldn't but can't find it again now!

    This is offical CD guidance:

    The ‘Sole Source’ programme should not be followed for
    one week preceding blood donation and for one week
    after. In fact, a centre will refuse to take blood if
    they know the donor is on a very low calorie diet,
    because blood viscosity and volume are affected by the
    ‘Sole Source’ programme.
