Doctors who practice Bloodless Medicine and Surgery in a formal program setting, state ( paraphrasing ) that the lab value of raising blood count from 7 to 8 gm/dl is just that a lab value -of little or no benefit to you and if you are having an adverse reaction-stop the transfusions. Dr. A. Shander who has posted on this site has stated as much. In fact the government and blood banks directive when giving transfusions is "Stop the Transfusion" if there is an adverse reaction then investigate ( this is not always done- neither the stopping nor investigating parts especially in what is considered by doctors -minor reactions ).

If you investigate this site you will find a lot of medically sound reasons not to accept anymore transfusions.
