Why I pass gas like every 15 minutes and it smell bad? How to cure it?

Infection? Dietary?: Since we don't digest the fiber we eat, intestinal bacteria will feed on it and make gas as a byproduct. Another reason could be lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest the lactose (milk sugar) she eats. Again, bacteria will feed on it. Drinking lactose-free milk and eating less fiber, should decrease gas. Intestinal infections, or using antibiotics, can also cause gas and loose stools. ...Read more

What causes your gas to suddenly smell? I have been eating better more fruits, vegetables, etc trying to watch my weight but have noticed a ten fold increase in the amount of gas and the smell associated with it seems to be very bad. Short of over the co

The: The gas you pass is manufactured by the bacteria that live in your colon when they consume food substances that are not completely absorbed in the small bowel. The gas is produced primarily from incompletely absorbed carbohydrates. The undigestible fiber found in the fruits and vegetables are a wonderful feast for the bacteria resulting in an increased production of gas. Interestingly, the type of gasses we pas are partly due to the very specific mixture of bacteria that populate each person's colon. This is different from person to person so that the same foods don't necessarily cause the same odor in different people. An increase in gas after a change in diet is not necessarily a sign of illness. You can test this by seeing if the gas subsides by going back to your prior diet. It is possible that the gas represents a more specific problem absorbing certain types of foods (one example is lactose intolerance); you should talk to your physician to make sure. ...Read more
