I your response you said you would remove 4-6 quarts of blood every 2-3 months via a phlebotomy. A human being only has approximately 5 quarts of blood in him in total. I assume you misspoke?

Oops, yes. I meant units, not quarts. One unit of whole blood is around 350 to 450 cc; approximately 4 units of blood are usually needed to be withdrawn to decrease this man's hemoglobin from 20 mg/mL to 14 mg/mL.
At least now I know someone reads my emails! Thanks for the correction
