Why is my stomach so noisy?

The noise from your stomach is actually caused from the movement of food, air and fluids (that help digest your food). Some people believe that the noise is caused from hunger but your stomach can be noisy even when it is full. Most of the time these “stomach” sounds are normal and it just means that your digestive system is working well. However, a noisy stomach plus pain, bloating, nausea/vomiting (feeling like you want to throw up or throwing up) could be a sign that something is wrong and you should see your health care provider (HCP)

People who have problems such as celiac disease, lactose intolerance (can’t digest dairy products normally) or irritable bowel symptoms are more apt to have gas and bloating. If you notice that your stomach makes more noise after you eat certain kinds of food or you have other symptoms, talk to your HCP.
