Stomach bloating is so common these days it’s been called an “epidemic.”
Having a bloated stomach is different from gaining actual fat mass around your stomach, since bloating is temporary and mostly caused by air becoming stuck around your abdomen, making it distend outward.
While a bloated stomach is certainly uncomfortable — even embarrassing when it comes along with gas or the need to run to the bathroom — it might be a bigger deal than you’d think. Stomach bloating can sometimes signify serious health problems lurking below the surface.
WHAT CAUSES BLOATING?
Most people don’t realize they have H. pylori infection, because they never get sick from it. Well, unfortunately, most people with H. pylori infection will never have any signs or symptoms. It’s not clear why this is, but some people may be born with more resistance to the harmful effects of H. pylori.
When signs or symptoms do occur with H. pylori infection, they may include: abdominal pain that’s worse when your stomach is empty; nausea; loss of appetite; frequent burping and bloating
Also, if you develop signs and symptoms of a peptic ulcer, your doctor will probably test you for H. pylori infection, because it can be treated with antibiotics.
