He likely wants to check for a source of bleeding in your lower digestive tract. If you are male, a post menopausal female, or have light to regular periods, it is a possible cause of anemia. I assume he's looked at your diet, age, and history, etc. If you happen to take a lot of Prilosec or nexium, I may have another answer for you. Good luck. The test is a pain in the ass (oops, sorry) to prep for, but really no big deal. I've already had to have a few, and they were a breeze. If you're uncomfortable during, just ask the doc for more meds.
