Q1: Why do we have excessive gas in the digestive system?
- It is normal for us to have gases in the digestive system. However, several reasons cause some of us to get too much gas or slow in gas elimination, and thus, experiencing excessive gas:
- Food – certain foods are known to cause overproduction of gas, such as fermentation of incomplete absorbed carbohydrate (eg, complex carbohydrate) in the colon; lactose; legumes; fried or fatty food; eating too much fiber; carbonated beverages; artificial sweetener.
- Gastrointestinal disorders – functional dyspepsia (indigestion); gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD); irritable bowel syndrome (IBS); peptic ulcer; lactose intolerance; Celiac disease; Crohn’s disease.
- Swallowed too much air – certain lifestyle habits such as eat or drink too fast, tend to swallow often because of feeling nervous; smoking, drinking from straw; wearing loose dentures.
- Others – taking antibiotics which disrupt healthy balance of good bacteria; laxative; having constipation (slow bowel movement increase the difficulty to pass gas); pre-menstrual symptoms (eg bloating happens due to hormonal changes).
