 Women at a Greater Risk of IBS and Bloating

Women are more prone to complaining of bloating and irritable bowel syndrome than men, a new study found.

Cynthia M. Yoshida, MD, author of 'No More Digestive Problems' has asserted that people should eat what is right for their bodies like berries, pumpkin and leafy greens, and avoid small carbohydrates that are not easily absorbed during the digestion process, the Huffington Post reported.

Gastroenterologist Patricia Raymond said that gulping air while gulping down your food is the most common cause of bloating.

Yoshida has also pointed out that by drastically reducing your caloric intake though crash diets, you're setting yourself up for stomach and intestinal issues.

Women also blame their rising stress levels for their upset stomach and indigestion.
