Common "Stomach Rumbling" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Stomach Rumbling

Stomach rumbling sounds or borborygmi are the abdominal or bowel sounds due to travel of food and liquid within the gastrointestinal tract, peristalsis, gas formation, increased fluid and gas during diarrhea, active digestion, hunger, and high carbohydrate diet. Louder sounds indicate increased intestinal activity and vice versa. Avoiding foods that create more gas, like beans, grains, carbonated drinks, cabbage, broccoli, etc., may reduce gas formation and rumble.
