When To Call A Professional
Call your doctor if you have flatulence that occurs along with abdominal discomfort, significant bloating or a sudden change in your bowel habits, either constipation or diarrhea. Also, call for advice if your attempts to reduce your flatulence have not worked.
Flatulence often can be controlled with a few minor changes in diet or lifestyle.
