Why Is My Blood So Dark
Myoglobinuria: Very, dark urine with the color of cola could be due to the presence of myoglobin, which is a breakdown product of muscle cell. It can be caused by trauma, alcohol, medications, and vigorous exercises. It could indicate that you have rhabdomyolysis, which could lead to kidney failure. Another cause would be blood (as in uti) or bilirubin in the urine (as in liver disease). Should be checked. ...Read more

Dark vs bright red: Your blood when freshly oxygenated is bright red -- as it would be if you had cut an artery. Dark red blood is less oxygenated, as from a vein going back to the heart & lungs to be refreshed. Thankfully, you probably severed a small capillary rather than an artery with bright red blood coursing through it. Http://chemistry. About. Com/od/biochemistry/a/is-deoxygenated-human-blood-blue.

Black = old blood: The color of the blood in your menstrual cycle is not useful or relevant. It reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina. Red is new. Brown or black blood is older and the blood products have started to break down. Menstrual blood color is not something you need to pay attention to. If your cycles are heavy consider birth control for regulation. ...Read more
Oxygenated vs: Un-oxygenated red cells. Red blood cells impart a bright red color when carrying oxygen; when these cells lose oxygen and pick up carbon dioxide, blood turns dark in color. There are other causes of different colors, e.g. Carbon monoxide poisoning, methemoglobinemia and variant hemoglobins. ...Read more
