Is there a cure for bloating?

Bloating can be caused by food intolerance. Your digestive system may be unable to process some of the sugars in dairy foods, certain fruits, vegetables, or wheat. When this is the case, you can change your diet to improve your condition. However, sometimes bloating is caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a bowel obstruction, or other diseases. In these cases your doctor needs to treat the underlying condition to cure your bloating. Your doctor can determine the best treatment for your bloating.
