GI Test Preparation Instructions

Blood in vomit or stool can be a sign of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. GI bleeding can be scary, though the cause of the bleeding may not be serious. You should always see a doctor if GI bleeding occurs.

If blood is coming out in your stool, it may signal a lower GI tract problem. Bleeding from the GI tract can be bright red, or it may look dark and tarry. Vomiting blood or a coffee ground material may signal an upper GI tract problem.

To find the cause, your doctor may order one or more test(s). Below find information and instructions for each GI test.
