Abdominal bloating is usually as a result of accumulation of liquids and/or intestinal gas triggered by consumption of certain foods.

In woman bloating could come as a premenstrual sign. Being listed as a common symptom of pre-menstrual syndrome doesn’t make it less serious. Unusual or persistent distention should be seen by a medical professional. Abdominal bloating may be a sign of an underlying condition such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Gastric or Kidney disease.
