Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

Gas and bloating are commonly caused by the food intolerance.
Gall bladder problem also can cause this problem.
Another possibility is the small intestinal bacterial overgrowth syndrome ( SIBO).
This can cause gas from excessive bacterial action on undigested food.
Intermittent course with Rifaximine and a probiotic pill like phillip's colon health may be helpful.
You should avoid milk and dairy products like cheese etc.
They cause bloating
You can consider avoiding wheat related products as well later if there is no improvement with dairy elimination.
Your diet should contain moderate amount of dietary fibers.
Initially you should cook your vegetables well to make the fibers soluble for easy digestion.
Avoid meat, fish, chicken, eggs as much as possible.
You can have plant proteins, like tofu, tempeh, lentils, rice etc.
Avoid nuts, seeds, beans, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower.
Also avoid sweets, cake, dessert, ice cream, caffeine as they worsen acid reflux and bloating symptoms.
Simethicone tablets may be helpful with the gas and bloating.
You should consider getting an abdominal ultrasound and some blood tests to check your gallbladder and liver out.
Endoscopies should be considered to check out celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, eosinophilic gastritis, and SIBO.
