According to a recent study, the reason for a bloated stomach when you didn’t overeat is an intestinal bacterial reaction to gluten. This may occur due to gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Gluten is a protein found in numerous grains such as rye, wheat and barley.
When a person suffering from celiac disease ingests gluten, his or hers body reacts by attacking the small intestine, causing abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloating and fatigue. In this situation, you need to stop eating gluten foods for a week and see if there are any improvements. If you don’t notice improvements after a week, you should visit a doctor as there’s something else causing the problem.
Most people have inflated stomach due to gluten intolerance, so if you’re suffering from the same problem, try avoiding gluten foods for 7 days.
