Stomach: "Grumbling" is the sound of AIR/LIQUID "mixing" and can be diminished by NOT EATING FOOD ALONG WITH LIQUIDS plus AVOIDING Carbonated Beverages! Sometimes it's accentuated by intestinal contractions which are normal when you are hungry!!!! (Its like your intestines are "getting ready" to digest your food! Hope this helps! Dr Z
