Hello Kathy,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community.

Gas forms when bacteria in your colon ferment carbohydrates that aren't digested in your small intestine. Unfortunately, healthy, high-fiber foods are often the worst offenders. Fiber has many health benefits, including keeping your digestive tract in good working order and regulating blood sugar and cholesterol levels. But fiber can also lead to the formation of gas.

Swallowing air, food intolerance, constipation and intolerance of artificial sweeteners can lead to excessive gas.

Try to identify and avoid the foods that affect you the most. Try cutting back on fried and fatty foods. Temporarily cut back on high-fiber foods. Go easy on fiber supplements. Reduce your use of dairy products.
