Our expert says:
Any marked change in bowel habits is always a reason for having a medical examination. Coupled with your weight gain and the increased flatulence all indicate that there may be a problem with your digestion. Because the symptom of flatulence is unfortunately associated with so many different gastrointestinal problems (ulcers, IBS, gallbladder problems, allergies, intolerance, enzyme deficiencies, etc, etc), it is necessary for you to have a medical examination so that we can obtain a diagnosis which will indicate what type of treatment you require and what type of diet would be beneficial. So please make an appointment with your gp as soon as possible so that you can find out what is causing the winds, weight gain, and increased bowel motions.
