So I gave blood a while to them and they said I had some Asian-based disease that is supposed to be easily misdiagnosed. I go in for a second blood donation and give them my blood. On my way out of the town they call me up and say they missed some paper work. Im pissed drive back and sign the paper work. Then a week later they send me a letter saying they did 3 more tests and got "can't read". Im thinking wtf? They got one positive and 2 "can't read" on the first donation. And 3 "can't read" on the second?

It sounds like mishandling of blood and they expect me to get my blood drawn a third time. Im willing to go for my third time. But what can I do to make sure these people do it right?

Thanks.

BTW, I dont have any symptoms of the supposed blood disease I'm a runner and "supposely" I should feel weakness in my legs and my legs are doing as good as ever.

Why not go to your doctor and have him test you for the disease? "Some Asian disease" isn't exactly a conclusive diagnosis. If it were me, and someone told me I had a disease, the doctor would be the first place I went. And not an internet forum.

I have had blood work done before tested for testerone levels and other things and no diseases every came up. Do I have specific diseases checked for?

And maybe yeah I should go to a doctor this time even though it might cost.

You need to get checked for whatever disease the lab said you have. Except this time, instead of being checked by some lab for a blood-buyer, you get checked with your actual physician. Have the people who said you have the disease, forward their findings to your doctor.
