Sounds like you're in a similar boat to me. Did you go to a doctor for your test? What did they say to do? I haven't gotten a diagnosis yet, but I've taken a few tests. Btw, anti-gastritis/ulcer medication promotes candida growth. As I have found out the hard way...

From what I hear/read, for candida you need an anti-fungal, not aspirin or anything else. Candida is very difficult to starve. To eat no sugar you would have to eat no fruit or carbs (I think it eats any kind of sugar). I've also heard certain starchy vegetables help candida. I'd recommend going to a small health store - something like a GNC but not a chain - and asking if they can recommend something for your GI bleeding. I did this a while back and they told me to drink aloe vera (with or without bitters) as it helps restore lining of the gut. A guy there said he had really bad ulcerative colitis and was able to stop bleeding by drinking that. It didn't seem to do much for me but I'd say it's worth a shot.

Otherwise, most health stores will recommend you take a Probiotic, I was recommended PB-8 (with the dairy bacterium). This helps the good bacteria and will help prevent candida overgrowth. What has helped me is staying away from processed food and eating mostly organic. Hope you get better and let me know if something works :)
