Customer Question

I have constant abdominal gurgling sounds, ideas?

Thank you for your question.

Gurgling sounds in the abdomen are simply the result of the contractions of your small intestine as food and liquids pass. The sounds may be more noticeable because you may have even something different or you may have more gas than usual. This is normal and is not something to be concerned about unless you have pain or other symptoms.
