My formula fed foster baby has realy dark green almost black poop and its really runny..Is this normal ? Also he was a drug and alcohol exposed baby
Yes: Dark green/almost black stools are indeed normal color for some infants. If the stools are totally black, ask doc to check for hidden blood.

( purple would be weird too, but i've seen that only after purple birthday cake!) also, runny is good for baby poo. ...Read more

Intermittent tachycardia with blood pressure changes every few hours, looking like but is not hypoglycemia, needing diagnosis and treatment.....?
More information would help clarify how to solve the problem: The combination of recurrent tachycardia, "unstable" blood sugar and blood pressure, "all the symptoms of diabetes" but normal HgbA1c, "reactive hypoglycemia" and symptoms occurring every three hours, and atypical sleep apnea. The differential diagnosis would include: *Insulinoma (insulin secreting tumor) producing recurant hypoglycemia with tachycardia) *Pheochrocytoma (adrenaline secreting tumor often of the adrenal glands) *polyendocrine syndome encompassing either or both with possible hypophysitis with ovarian hypofunction or autoimmune oopheritis. You may have been screened for insulinoma but remember that common screening test use monoclonal antibodies which will not pick up proinsulin. To assist in diagnosis - providing more detail to the phrases in paragraph 1 including labs and then consultation with an endocrinologist would be an appropriate next step. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers

In that case, most studies have demonstrated link to benefit from moderate consumption of red wine (not beer or hard liquor). That's 1 drink/d for women & 2 drinks/d for men. Of course all these studies are observational, not based upon proving cause & effect. So jury's still out in terms of outright proof. ...Read more
