It’s happened to all of us. You’re sitting in a quiet office or maybe at a meeting when suddenly your belly is determined to get your attention. How? By making embarrassing noises you’re sure everyone within ear shot can hear.
Why does this happen and is there anything you can do about it?Whether it’s rumbling, gurgling, growling or a higher pitched wail, digestive noises are typically associated with food, or a lack thereof. For instance, after a meal your digestive tract has a lot of work to do. Food, liquid and air is making its way from your stomach to your intestines. Your stomach may grumble or growl as it secretes acid and enzymes while using its strong muscles to physically break food down into a pulpy mass and push it through to the small intestines.
