In brief: See below
The following measures may be helpful: •don’t chew gum. Chewing gum can cause you to swallow extra air, which in turn can lead to bloating.
•limit your intake of carbonated drinks. •avoid “gassy” foods, such vegetables in the cabbage family, dried beans, and lentils. •eat slowly. •avoid drinking through a straw. •lose weight if you are overweight. •use lactose-free dairy products.
