Very loud intestinal sounds

kiwikidd77, Jun 20, 6:59pm
Over the past 5 months my intestines have been increasingly making very loud growling noises.

I'm 67, a little overweight, eat well and slowly losing weight. Last blood tests for diabetes (diet controlled for several years) were normal.

Bowel motions are very loose with no sign of blood.

No discomfort except when the gurgling is happening.

Friends are noticing how loud its become.

Should I be concerned or is this likely just a part of getting older.

Forgot to add that I can feel the gas or liquids moving with the noises.

Are you on medication causing this?
Discuss with your doctor.

Go get some probiotics and trial not eating bread or anything made from flour.

Do go and discuss this with your Dr, the sounds coupled with the loose motions, discomfort and maybe other signs will mean more to them, and there are tests which can be carried out to determine the reason for your problem.

Maybe you have developed a lactose or gluten intolerance? Quite common with aging, I believe. Your doc can arrange tests.
