Thanks for the query.

Making all sorts of vague noises after food intake may suggest indicate reflux disease which is characterized by a loose valve between the food pipe and stomach.

Your friend will require a consultation with a gastroenterologist and an endoscopy test. Following these he may need to take some medication and life style changes.

Regarding flattening of the stomach, it's difficult to comment without actually seeing the patient. However dietary restriction, abdominal exercises and rarely surgery are the options of treatment.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have need clarifications.
