Family, Internal Medicine, General Medical Questions/FLATULENCE & PERSPIRATION


I find myself breaking wind all day long and it can be up to 30 times a day.  I'm eating a well balanced diet, so I don't think it's that.................  Also, at night, I sweat a lot when it gets too warm.  I try to find the right balance with the duvet - if it is too light, I'm too cold, if it's too heavy, I sweat!  HELP!  I feel that I'm the only one suffering from these problems!!

Dear Karmie,

Flatulence is a normal part of the digestive system. Foods high in fiber may cause more gas than other types of foods. It is normal to pass gas approximately 30 times a day. You can try adjusting your diet to produce less gas. This would mean decreasing the amount of broccoli, beans, and other gas producing foods. As far as the sweating and freezing at bedtime, this is also normal. It can be hormonal changes or your metabolism. Try using a medium weighted blanket for comfort.
