Bloating in the stomach can be due to stomach, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, colon, small intestine and other organ problems as well as a range of other conditions (lactose intolerance, malabsorption, H pylori stomacn infection). A thorough history, physical, and laboratory evaluation is often necessary to sort out the cause of his symptoms. KH
