Donating Platelets and Plasma

Jay, I've researched this a bunch and have not found much good info on it or a doctor who could do better than speculate at an answer. Do you think it's problematic to donate platelets and plasma while T optimized, where RBC is returned and only the platelets and plasma are drawn? I'm AB+ (universal platelet/plasma donor), so like to be able to donate to those I need, but would like to know if I am setting myself up for a dangerously high RBC count in the process...

    If you are doing it for humanity, always a good thing. But not if you are vaxxed.

    Hell no!  But question is if doing so would increase likelihood of elevated RBC levels when T is optimized?
