I’m wondering if I pass too much gas. What’s normal?
Believe it or not, various researchers have studied flatulence frequency. And according to the US National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, the average man passes gas 14 to 23 times a day. “Many people think their own output is excessive,” says Dr William Chey, a professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan in the US. “But it’s normal for men to produce anywhere from 0.5l to 1.9l of gas a day.” That’s because a backfire is your body’s way of regulating the amount of air in your stomach, as well as the gas levels in your intestines. Stifling your urge to pass gas can produce abdominal cramping or even rumblings, technically called borborygmi.
