Detailed Answer:

Hello,
Thanks choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
I've gone through your details and I appreciate your concerns.

The pathophysiology of gas and flatulence is complicated.

The term gut microflora or microbiota means hundreds of species of bacteria which live in our intestinal tract. These bacterias and yeast are responsible for proper digestion and fermentation of food. Hundreds of species of bacteria and yeast which are found in the colon of the human intestine.In the same way, thousands of these species flourish in our gut these bacteria play a vital role in digestion and absorption of food.

Even minor disturbances in gut microflora can lead to significant changes in gut function, including gas production.

There are various mechanisms that can be related to increased flatulence-

If this microbiota is disturbed food is improperly fermented causing the production of a lot of gases in the gut leading to severe flatulence. Hence most common cause in most of the cases is disturbed microbiota.In old patient mobility of intestines is severely compromised leading to accumulation of a lot of gases in intestines. As peristaltic moments are week gas accumulates in intestines.

Severe constipation or incomplete evacuation can also hinder the passage of gases.
-Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth can be a reason of severe flatulence.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) refers to a condition in which abnormally large numbers of bacteria are present in the small intestine, and the types of bacteria in the small intestine resemble more the bacteria of the colon than the small intestines causing improper and disturbed food digestion.


Test suggested-

Small bowel imaging and a gastric-emptying scan.

As of now take 2tsf of tums or Pepto Bismol thrice daily.
Tab Omeprazole 40 mg twice daily for symptomatic relief.

Hope I answered your query.

Thanks!
