Hello. Is it possible to have severe bloating (usually after meals, small meals) and develop a big belly without being on any Meds at all? Please advise. I thank you in advance for you opinions.


Response from Dr. Henry

Yes that can happen. Sometimes one has a reaction to milk products or a problem with digestion (pancreatic dysfunction) or an infection (such as H pylori in the stomach) that needs to be considered. KH
