BACKGROUND:Patients complaining of abdominal bloating have impaired tolerance and clearance of intestinal gas loads. Mild exercise enhances intestinal clearance and prevents retention of intestinal gas loads in healthy subjects. Our aim was to evaluate the putative beneficial effects of physical activity in patients with abdominal bloating.METHODS:In eight patients complaining of bloating, seven with irritable bowel syndrome, and one with functional bloating, according to Rome II criteria, a… Expand
Colonic gas transit in patients with bloating: the effect of an electromechanical stimulator of the abdominal wall
TLDR
An external mechanical massage of the abdominal wall did not improve intestinal gas transit, abdominal perception and abdominal distension in the authors' female patients complaining of functional bloating. Expand
The effect of a short-term physical activity after meals on gastrointestinal symptoms in individuals with functional abdominal bloating: a randomized clinical trial
TLDR
This study shows that physical activity could be effective in relieving abdominal bloating symptoms and that prokinetic medication use and minimal exercise after meals were associated with significant improvements in the GI tract symptoms. Expand
Impact of Moderate Intensity Aerobic Exercise on Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Post Cholecystectomy Patients
TLDR
Moderate intensity aerobic exercise training (60% MHR) for 4 weeks is effective in treatment of IBS post cholecystectomy through reducing IBS symptoms and improving quality of Life. Expand
Abdominal Bloating in Employed Adults: Prevalence, Risk Factors, and Association With Other Bowel Disorders
TLDR
Smoking and high-dose aspirin are associated with bloating while physical activity is not, and the positive and negative predictive values of bloating in the diagnosis of functional bowel disorder were 66% and 87%, respectively. Expand
Bloating and functional gastro-intestinal disorders: where are we and where are we going?
TLDR
The aim was to review the latest knowledge on bloating physiopathology and therapeutic options trying to shed lights on those processes where a clinician could intervene to modify disease course. Expand

TLDR
The evaluation of the IBS patient with unexplained gas and bloating relies on careful exclusion of organic disease with further characterisation of the underlying condition with directed functional testing. Expand
The effects of locomotor activity on gastrointestinal symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome among younger people: An observational study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the severity of GSRS is associated with the amount of walking in younger people with IBS, and these results may be used as a measure to determine the daily step count to reduceThe severity of gastrointestinal symptoms in individuals with Ibs. Expand
Peripheral and central factors in the pathophysiology of irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
Altered visceral perception is associated with symptom severity, and stress induces an altered visceral and neuroendocrine response in IBS patients, which could explain why stress is sometimes associated with the onset and worsening of symptoms. Expand
Physical Activity Improves Symptoms in Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Increased physical activity improves GI symptoms in IBS and Physically active patients with IBS will face less symptom deterioration compared with physically inactive patients. Expand
Functional Abdominal Bloating with Distention
TLDR
No treatment is of unequivocal benefit but a low FODMAPs diet, probiotics and the non-absorbable antibiotic rifaximin offer some hope. Expand

Effects of physical activity on intestinal gas transit and evacuation in healthy subjects.
TLDR
In healthy subjects, gut transit of intraluminal gas is enhanced by mild physical activity and is associated with significant abdominal distension, which was decreased with exercise. Expand
Impaired Small Bowel Gas Propulsion in Patients with Bloating During Intestinal Lipid Infusion
TLDR
In IBS patients intraluminal lipids impair intestinal gas clearance because of upregulated reflex inhibition of small bowel transit, without appreciable colonic effects. Expand
Origin of gas retention and symptoms in patients with bloating.
TLDR
In patients reporting bloating, the small bowel is the gut region responsible for ineffective gas propulsion. Expand
Impaired reflex control of intestinal gas transit in patients with abdominal bloating
TLDR
Failure of distension related reflexes impairs intestinal gas propulsion and clearance in patients with abdominal bloating. Expand
Impaired transit and tolerance of intestinal gas in the irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
A large proportion of patients with IBS can be shown to have impaired transit and tolerance of intestinal gas loads, which may represent a possible mechanism of IBS symptoms, specifically pain and bloating. Expand
Lipid-induced intestinal gas retention in irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
Physiologic concentrations of intestinal lipids exert an inhibitory control on intestinal gas transit, and this mechanism is up-regulated in patients with IBS, suggesting impaired gas propulsion may be useful as a diagnostic test if replicated in a larger series of patients. Expand
Intestinal gas distribution determines abdominal symptoms.
TLDR
The volume of gas within the gut determines abdominal distension whereas symptom perception depends on intraluminal gas distribution and possibly also on the gut motor response to gas loads. Expand
Influence of body posture on intestinal transit of gas
TLDR
Body posture has a significant influence on intestinal gas propulsion: transit is faster in the upright position than when supine, and the gas challenge test was well tolerated both inThe upright and supine positions without abdominal distension. Expand
Prokinetic effects in patients with intestinal gas retention.
TLDR
In patients with intestinal gas retention, pharmacological stimulation of intestinal propulsion improves gas transit, abdominal symptoms, and distention. Expand
The role of intestinal gas in functional abdominal pain.
TLDR
Complaints of bloating, pain and gas may result from disordered intestinal motility in combination with an abnormal pain response to gut distention rather than from increased volumes of gas. Expand
