Why is my stomach flat in the morning and bloated at night?

Why is my stomach flat in the morning and bloated at night?

Gravity and diet: Good question.

Change your diet, exercise, and watch your salt intake. ...Read more

Food intolerance?: Food intolerances are amazingly common & very individualized. In one series, 10% of patients were intolerant of water! if you had celiac disease, we'd tell you to avoid gluten; if lactose intolerant we'd ask you to restrict milk products, so see if there is a common food you always consume & avoid it. If still suffering, then maybe stomach inflammation, dysmotility, or non-gi disease. See your doc. ...Read more

Bloated stomach and getting bigger though i eat 3x a day small meals.

Bloated stomach and getting bigger though i eat 3x a day small meals.

No short answer: You don't mention pain, nausea, vomiting or constipation. There all a lot of different "small meals". If it contains several rolls, or dips of ice cream you may be getting too many calories, or not exercising. I trust you have done a pregnancy test. I have noticed that 45-50 yrs old is a time that women have more trouble with weight. You should see a physician as there are other possibilities. ...Read more
