Default Re: Giving blood - I'm having issues - experienced donors chime in!

The advice I've been given includes drinking lots of water before and eating a good protein meal that morning. Being well hydrated is especially important.

Sadly this has never resulted in a completed donation, as my veins shut down when I try. I've tried three times. Like you I never have trouble with blood work, it's usually easy to get a good spot for a draw.
