Belching : Causes

Belching - is involuntary, uncontrolled release of gas from the stomach (esophagus), sometimes accompanied by small amounts of stomach contents.

constant and involuntary burp - a phenomenon that is not only unpleasant for the man himself, but also for the people around him.However, belching also may signal the presence of disease in the gastrointestinal tract.If a person is concerned about the constant burping after a meal, it is necessary to pass inspection.

reasons belching

When the stomach is working properly, in its cavity always has a gas that helps to stimulate the secretion and gastric motility.Gas bubble size depends on several factors: the use of carbonated beverages, air entrapment during fast-food and some food - peas, cabbage, beans, foods rich in fiber.

Usually gas from the stomach goes unnoticed in small portions through the gut or mouth.When ingested a large amount of air is increased intragastric pressure, stomach muscles contract, there is a relaxation of the sphincter between the

stomach and the esophagus simultaneously compressed sphincter between the stomach and the duodenum.It is this process and causes belching.

People with a healthy gastrointestinal tract belch is practically absent.Frequent involuntary regurgitation is often a sign of intestinal diseases, liver, gall bladder and stomach itself when broken mechanism circuit cardiac sphincter, located between the esophagus and the stomach.

This imbalance can often occur after surgery on the gastrointestinal tract or in the presence of a diaphragmatic hernia.Belching may also be a sign of neurosis of the stomach, occur in diseases of the abdominal organs, cardiovascular disease (myocardial infarction, ischemic heart disease, and others.) But most of the burp is an indicator of duodenal disease, stomach.

Types belching Belching

are empty (air), bitter, sour, rotten, loud, quiet.Belching air has no smell, taste, most often occurs due to increased gas formation in the stomach or with abundant ingested air.

Delay food in the stomach stimulates the stagnation and decay of food directly into the stomach and causes the formation of hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, which impart an unpleasant burping "rotten" smell.

When belching air, together with a small amount of food the stomach can also threw its contents with a sour, bitter, even putrid taste.Sour burping may signal the acidity of the stomach, as well as the absence of the gastric juice hydrochloric acid, which often causes increased fermentation.Bitter eructation indicates that the stomach is thrown into a small amount of bile putrefactive - indicates prolonged stagnation of food in the stomach and its decomposition.


Permanent involuntary regurgitation requires careful examination of the patient.Treat belching separately existing disease does not make sense, because it is only the consequence of the other, the main disease of the gastrointestinal tract.

First of all, you need to follow a diet to exclude from the use of carbonated beverages, foods that are retained in the stomach for a long time (beans, peas, beans).There is often necessary, but in small quantities.

With the increased secretion of gastric juice, if that's what it provokes the appearance of regurgitation, the patient should take alkalizing medicines: magnesium, bread soda, alkaline mineral water.
