Dear Please Help
If you stomach is being distended by the buildup of gas then you may suffer from digestive complaints such as ulcers, gallbladder disease, food allergies, or irritable bowel disease. Please have a medical checkup so that we can obtain a diagnosis. Once the dr has determined which one of these conditions is making your stomach swell, we can look at dietary changes.
