Hi
Welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I understand your concern.
Some basic tests like cbc, esr, liver function test, creatinine, glucose random, tsh, uric acid and ultrasonography of abdomen along with 3 samples of stool routine and occult blood done on three different days will help you in ruling out most serious causes of dyspepsia or gas problem.
Also special test like endoscopy and colonoscopy will significantly help in determining etiology and ruling out serious causes of same.
Also regularizing eating and sleeping habits regular walk / exercise adopting to healthy lifestyle and avoiding excess spicy oily foods and coffee aerated drinks (if any) will help him in controlling his symptoms.
Hope this answers your query.
Happy to help.
Wish him a speedy recovery.
