Excessive malodorous flatulence

Hi,
I am a fifteen year old student suffering from severe malodorous flatulence. I first noticed this problem about a year ago. It first started with a lot of gas. Mainly during school this year I have noticed much more of this. I don't experience the sensation of passing gas but based on the expressions and comments from the people around me I realize that I am releasing very foul smelling gas. I desperately need a solution to curing this problem. Is there anything you can suggest that can help me get rid of this? Do you know what is causing this in the first place?

I know this was posted a while ago but I too suffer with gas. Would you say a gluten free diet would help this problem?

Another possible cause is sugar alcohols.  If you eat a lot of sugar-free things, watch out for sugar alcohols to be added.  Many people have strong reactions to these.  They are words that end in -itol, like sorbitol, mallitol, etc.

I agree that dairy is a frequent culprit also.

You should get checked for Celiacs and also get off dairy to see if that helps. I had horrible gas before I quit gluten.

I hope this helps,
