Gastric problem is caused mostly due to the food one has eaten which, has either digested improperly or maybe due to rapid swallowing of food and drinking beverages. This usually leads to a buildup of gas in the body that is passed naturally via burping or flatulence.
But sometimes gas gets accumulated in the body leaving no way for it to be released, thus leading to heartburn and gas.
The question arrives as to why one gets gas related distress and how we can prevent it.
What causes Gastric Distress?
Gas and related distress usually builds up due to,
Ingestion of carbonated beverages or swallowing of air during sucking through the straw.
Eating beans, lentils, asparagus, corn, potatoes and artificial sweeteners which require too much 1.stomach acid for breakdown.
Having excess milk can also lead to a lactose dependent gastric problem.
Even excess intake of natural sugars can lead to gas build up in the body.
Further stress build up in ones day to day life is a very common cause for gastric issues.
The stomach is always in a constant battle to breakdown the food and maintain the acidity levels in the body. Thus when we ingest foods that are relatively acidic in nature or if you have unhealthy eating habits, the result is gas buildup in the body. This is when we feel like we have acid reflux and diarrhea at the same time.
Serious digestive issues cause acidity, indigestion, stomach bloating and heartburn. Some of the other causes of the gastric pain are viral or bacterial infections, food poisoning, kidney stones, constipation and ulcers etc.
Gastric distress in the past would affect individuals only after the age of 40 but now even the younger generation is getting affected. The distress usually starts off as acute and then goes to chronic conditions if it is not treated on time. This distress can also affect the stomach and intestinal lining, which could cause ulcers.
An added common digestion problem is the bile reflux occurring from the bile duct. It is very common for people who turn to their bed immediately after eating food, especially if it is spicy.
People often make wrong assumptions, especially with indigestion. They would rather stay empty stomach, which they don't realize is just going to worsen their gas trouble symptoms.
