Thank you for asking HCM
It is normal to pass flatus 6 to 20 times per day.It can be caused by type of food you take like carbonated drinks,beer,vegetables like radishes potatoes in excess,beans and legumes.Avoid or decrease such substance if you have excess flatulence.If can be due to problems of digestive tract also.I treat my patients with simethicone for flatulence.If constipation is there i treat that alongside also.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
