Abstract

Introduction: Whole blood donation is almost obsolete in developed country but still it’s the main stay of transfusion practice in developing countries. Iron deficiency is a complication of regular blood donation.
Objective: To study the various hematological parameters along with serum ferritin & HBA1C level in non-diabetic and diabetic blood donor population.
Materials and Methods: Complete blood count was performed using six part analyser, serum ferritin using ELISA and HBA1C using HPLC method.
Results: In our study there was a decrease in level of some of the hematological parameters, serum ferritin and HBA1C level after donation.
Conclusion: From our study we conclude that only hemoglobin estimation in blood donors is not sufficient for acceptance of donations and serum ferritin level should be measured in regular blood donors. For diabetic donors on oral medication at least HBA1C level should be repeated after two months of donation.

Keywords: Iron deficiency, Blood donation, Hematological parameters, Serum Ferritin, HBA1C level.
