If you are experiencing gas on a regular basis and it feels like this is a constant in your life, you need to assess what you're eating to determine if there is a link between a certain food group/ingredient and your symptoms. Excess gas can occur when you eat something your body is struggling to break down or digest. For those who are gluten or lactose intolerant, eating foods with these ingredients can cause a buildup of gas very quickly. Some other causes of persistent gas are inflammatory bowel diseases or bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine which could be a complication of diabetes.
