In brief: Simethicone
Avoid foods or increased amounts of food that seem to cause bloating.
You can eliminate a food at a time to fingure this out. Otherwise, make sure that with meals, you take a simethicone containing medication to disperse the gas. You may need to slow down your eating and drinking. Often times, people swallow lots of air with rapid eating (swallowing) and drinking. Put fork down between bites.

Also eliminate carbonated drinks and don't use straws as you tend to swallow more air that way.

When talking with your doctor, broach the possiblity of gastroparesis (too slowly emptying stomach), malabsorption, and SIBO (bacterial overgrowth of the bowel).
