Brief Answer:
Gas can not be present daily or cause a popping sound!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this popping sound that you have described. Air would be totally unable to cause a squishing sound. This may just be related to food movements in The intestines. The liver is on the right and therefore this slightly elevated liver enzyme counts cannot justify this. As of of this time, there is not enough argument to support further investigations. This in itself doesn't point to a specific disease condition. I will suggest that you stay calm and monitor only at this time. If something else comes up, we will be able to look into and further explore accordingly.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
