Bloating is more common in women and affects 1 in 5 persons. It is a sensation of excessive gas and or distension of the bowel. Frequent bloating is a sign of poor gut health. Causes of bloating may include foods that overly produce gas; sugar malabsorption (lactose, fructose, artificial sweeteners); food sensitivities (including gluten); irritable bowel syndrome; celiac disease; constipation; diverticular disease; bacterial overgrowth; and parasitic infections. Important conditions such as cancers need to be considered also.
