I found a great medical study titled "Iron Deficiency In Blood Donors" done in 2001.

It shows how dramatically a person's Ferritin can drop from donating blood, and multiple donors and women are at a high risk for Iron Deficiency. They conclude that the Hemoglobin screening test the Red Cross uses isn't enough to exclude donors who are iron deficient.

Fascinating read. I highly recommend it to anyone who frequent the Red Cross.

On a side note, I think the neuropathy in my toes has gone away after about 10 days of iron supplements.
