What is Bloating, Gas and Flatulence?
Abdominal bloating is a condition in which the abdomen (belly) feels full and tight. The abdomen may be visibly swollen (distended). Common causes include: Air swallowing (a nervous habit), constipation, gastroesophageal reflux, Irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance and other food intolerances, overeating, small bowel bacterial overgrowth, weight gain.
Gas, flatulence, and bloating can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Hydrogen and carbon dioxide are produced by colon bacteria in the presence of poorly absorbed carbohydrates. If flatulence is accompanied by diarrhea and weight loss, it may indicate a malabsorption disorder such as lactose intolerance or pancreatic insufficiency, and should be evaluated by your primary health care provider. More common is excess flatulence after eating large amounts of poorly absorbed carbohydrates such as beans or foods to which you have a food sensitivity. Common food sensitivities include milk and wheat products. Learn More
