    Hi

    Passage of gas for about 10times a day is normal. Cause of excessive gas in abdomen are many like excessive swallowing of air/ irritable bowel syndrome/ lactase deficiency/ malabsorption syndromes/ intake of certain foods like beans, excess starchy food etc. Management include maintain a diary of your diet and see which food items are increasing gas production and avoid such foods. If you suspect lactase deficiency avoid dairy products in diet for 10-14 days and observe for improvement, if you feel gas production decreased use lactase enzyme that is available as liquid/ tablets. Laxatives to treeat constipation can be used if there are altered bowel habits. Antacids also may be used.

    Hi,

    Specifically some foods predispose to bloating or gas formation. These are : peas, nuts, milk, milk products, sweets and tomato etc. If you are eating lot of salads, you might get gases. If you eat in a hurry, you might gulp air and might get bloating sensation. If you do not take too much spices, take regular timely meal and prudent in your diet habits, you will have regular bowel movements.
