Gastritis, Liquid diet and still a lot of gas.. why?

Dr told me I have gastritis and should go on liquid diet.
I'm on liquid diet 3rd day and I still have a lot a rumbling and gas in my stomach.

I'm lactose intolerant and drinking Boost drink and water only for 3 days.

Anyone have any idea why I still have so much gas and rumbling?

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Fluids alone is not wise. You will run out of nutrients. Gas and rumbling is common in gastritis due to compromised bowel movements. Take fibrous diet and add some vitamins upplements. Lactose intolerance also causes these symptoms. Just avoid NSAIDs, keep the diet soft and easily digestible and take some antacids and better start triple therapy for gastritis.

I hope it helps.Please take good care of yourself and do as directed.I would advise to stay in touch with your health care provider as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor where a complete evaluation occurs. I will be here if you need me or have any more questions to ask, i would love to answer.

May the odds be ever in your favour.

Take care
