The team at Rozelle Total Health
Contrary to what many people believe, bloating is not necessarily due to too much gas in the stomach. Researchers have performed studies on patients who feel bloated using CT scans, and shown that they often do not have any more gas in the belly than people who have no symptoms. Excessive gas production probably plays a part, but does not explain the whole picture.
There are several different factors which may play a role:
If you also have constipation, try taking regular sterculia fibre or laxatives that you find over the counter from the chemist. Usually, getting rid of the constipation helps the bloating too.
See your GP or gastroenterologist if your bloating is not improving with the above measures. You should also see your doctor if you have other symptoms along with your bloating such as unintentional weight loss, vomiting, being woken up at night to open the bowels or due to pain, or a change in bowel habits. These may be indicative of an underlying disorder rather than just ‘simple’ bloating.
Your doctor can perform a physical examination and may order further investigations such as blood tests, x-rays, stool specimens, or gastroscopy and colonoscopy. Your doctor may recommend other medical treatments for bloating such as prokinetics (medicines that stimulate the contraction of the gut and propulsion of gas and other contents) and medicines that change the composition of the gut microbiome in favour of more “good bacteria”.
