Bloating – air tight stomach
What is Bloating ?
Bloating is any abnormal general swelling (Swelling of Tummy) , or increase in diameter of the abdominal area. As a symptom, the patient feels a full and tight abdomen, which may cause abdominal pain, and sometimes accompanied by increased stomach growling, or more seriously, the total lack of it.
Causes of Bloating :
There are many causes of bloating, including: diet, irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance, reflux, and constipation.
Specific medical conditions like Crohn’s Disease or bowel obstruction can also contribute to the amount of stomach bloating experienced.
Gas and bloating is a sign that food is not being digested correctly by the body. An inadequate intake of water will cause excessive stomach bloating.Water benefits the body by aiding with digestion because it supports a majority of the body’s daily functions. A buildup of fat cells slows down the body’s ability to empty the stomach.Dairy products also contribute to excessive cramps, gas, and bloating.[medical citation needed] Persons who are intolerant to lactose products experience this effect more than others. Once these foods are digested, the bloating will fade.
There are foods that help get rid of Bloating, which is a common problem now a days…
There are multiple over the counter medications that can be used to treat bloating. Food enzymes can be found in some products that will help break down the sugars found in grains, vegetables and dairy products. They can be taken before food is consumed or added to the food that causes the gas and bloating. Another type of medicine is activated charcoal tablets that will decrease the odor from gas. The most common treatment is antacids. These medications have no effect on the gas that is presently in the intestines, but it allows for gas build-up to be belched away more easily, reducing the amount of bloating that develops. Another treatment is Simethicone, an oral anti-foaming agent that helps the body to expel the gas more quickly. Also combination of prokinitics like; domperidone+metoclopramide+diphenhydramine (Diphen for prevention of extrapyramidal reactios-specially acute dystonic reaction)+PPI has dramatic effects especially on bloaters and belchers.
