what is the best way to avoid this

you should try to cut out gluten, white flour, milk, pasta, bread, sodas, sugars out of your diet

and eat more protein and fruits and vegetables

and see if this helps your bloating and weight gain and rumbling.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
