Thank you for choosing us to get an opinion regarding your health issues.

Based on your explanations, you want to know about the reasons why your stomach keeps on making sound even when you are not hungry and asking about how to solve it. I will try my best to give an explanation regarding this matter.

For your information, stomach growling occurs as food, liquid, and gas go through the stomach and small intestine. This is a normal phenomenon during digestion process and the sound will be noticeable if your stomach is empty or hungry. There are a few other condition that may cause this situation if you are not hungry, some of them are:

  • food allergies
  • food intolerances
  • gastrointestinal infections
  • intestinal blockage
  • irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

You can do the following to help you overcome this issue:

  • drink more water
  • chew slowly
  • avoid food and drink that cause gas
  • do light exercise

I hope the above statement does help you in a way and if you need further assistance and explanations from us, you can talk to our doctor online. Thank you.
