How long you have the symptoms?
any diarrhea? constipation?
Ok in that case, you likely have bad intestinal flora which produce gas from undigested food.
Please follow a high fiber low fat diet. Drink plenty of fluids.
Easily digestible food better
Please also include prebiotics like Inulin daily to keep your colon acidic which prevent gas producing bacteria. Also take a probiotic ( lactobacilli, bifidobacterium) daily to restore intestinal microbial balance. Culturelle 30 Counts twice daily should be fine. Please consider taking Simethicone ( GasX) strips before each meal and activated charcoal tablets to reduce gas formation.
