Every person swallows air when they eat or drink.
But some people can gulp down more than others, particularly if they are:
1. Eating or drinking too fast
2. Chewing gum
3. Smoking
4. Wearing loose dentures
Burping and flatulence are 2 ways swallowed air exits the body.
Delayed emptying of the stomach (slow gas transport) besides gas accumulation can also cause distension and abdominal bloating.
Other causes of bloating may be because of medical disorders.
1. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
2. Inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease
3. Other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs)

2. Celiac disease or gluten intolerance
3. Pancreatic insufficiency, which is impaired digestion because the pancreas cannot produce enough digestive enzymes
4. Perforation of the GI tract with escape of gas, normal GI tract bacteria, and other contents into the abdominal cavity
