My gut always makes these noises, grumble grumble - on and on.
It gets very loud! so loud sometimes it wakes me up at nite.
And no I don't think its because I'm hungry, I really don't know what it is.
My GI told me there is a name for it but its a long medical term that I can't remember.
And she said out of all her patients my "noises" where the loudest.

Any way or ideas to minimize this annoying symptom??? shakehead

My daughter's noises were reduced by eating yogurt...now she makes homemade yogurt, aged 24 hours for extra strength (also to break down lactose and casein). However, even commercial yogurt helped...the best kind is plain and should say it has active cultures.

No kidding!  Wow NJMom, that's really interesting.    My daughter often complains about the gurgling too.  Said it doesn't hurt, just moves around gurgling.  I made some homemade yogurt. She won't eat it.  I can only get her to take about 1/4 tsp. off a spoon w/ grape juice on it too. Sour sour sour. BLECH, she says.  Do you think probiotics in the form of capsules would have the same effect?  She takes those, but still the gurgling.

    I'm not a huge fan of plain yogurt, so I make myself smoothies in order to get the health benefits of yogurt. You can take plain or flavored yogurt, add in some fruit and juice (I do strawberries, blueberries, and OJ). Maybe that would be an alternative for getting your daughter to eat some yogurt Mooby.

    Try making the yogurt with half & half, or try dripping it. That gets rid of most of the tartness. I still add a little honey to mine though.

    if in the bowel it could be a stricture. metamucil will help that. do you only have it at night? I would think normal peristalsis slows at night. it could also be pocket of air. I can get a churning when i eat cookies on empty stomach. If combined with coffee i can really get it churning. so its probably from sugary food. but even though you may not be hungry i would eat smaller portions, more often and not in late evening.

    Did they prescribe you the Emtec for crohns or for pain?

    I was prescribed Bentyl to help with abdominal pain but it also seemed to really help with the gurgling noises and feelings.

    I gurgled a lot more when I had a stricture. It's better since surgery.

    I always have stomach gurgles.....VERY loudly! They were a lot worse and more frequent when I was flaring, but still there and my last tests showed no evidence of narrowings, but my system still is very quick so food does rush through so I guess thats why its still noisy!
     
    Its also been worse since I lost weight in my last couple of flares and have remained quite slim, less chub on the stomach to muffle the sounds lol!

    thank you all for your thoughts and comments! I have been taking EMTEC for quite some time now and it is truly a god send!
    I find it is really the only drug that has worked for me. I used to only take one pill every now and then.
    But since I have had crohns I am taking about 3 a day.
    I got it for pain, as i get bad adomenal pain - sometimes it feels like someone punched my in my stomach. YYYIIIKKKEEES!

    And yes not eating after 7pm does help a bit.
    Taking Gas-X has also helped as well.
    And not eating any of the "no no" foods like carbonated beverages, and sugary foods is also a plus.

    However, I think it is because I have a "j-pouch". As sometimes it sounds like a coffee maker while I'm eating or early in the morning.
    Perhaps when my food is digesting or traveling thru.

    As for the yogurt - good on that one - I don't like eating it either - I am currently trying out some herbal ACIDOPHILUS in pill form and there's like 11 billion active cultures in it. Highly recommend. I take about 2 pills a day and keep it in the fridge.

    Hey, I don't have Crohn's, and my tummy is shockingly loud sometimes. . . even louder than my husbands! I think it's normal digestive noises, but if you also have pain, now that's probably a bad sign. I certainly notice more noise when I eat/drink sugary carbonated drinks, or if I eat when I'm wayyy hungry (like starving).

    Also, I notice my tummy make noises when I initially lie down. Not all night, but for maybe 1/2 hour after I lay down. It sure is embarrassing, but then, most people's stomach makes noise - don't think it happens only to Crohn's patients.

    The medical term for this is borborygmi (I pronounce it 'bore-bore-IG-me' - not sure if that's right).  As for how to stop it I have no idea, mine just comes and goes at it pleases.  My GI told me that for some people it's a sign of increased disease activity but not always.  Yes it sure is annoying...
     
    Medchrt1 suggested fiber for a stricture, but I'm not convinced that would be a good idea....

    I am not familar with J pouch or any of the transitions. The emtec will slow things down (as the ingredients of emtec is thought to have some narcotic) as I see that it has many names, depending on where prescribed, so I do not know, for sure, what the emtec consists of.

    The noise location was also not specified beyond 'gut', so I indicated 'if' within bowel. The possible existence of stricture itself is purely speculation. Rider Fan - Feel free to provide now what you would prescribe for a stricture, as I would be interested, or perhaps you speculate that a stricture isnt present. Actually I see that you have not given any advice.

    I wouldn't prescribe anything as I'm not a doctor, it just seems to me that people here say to stay away from fiber with strictures. Nothing personal there dude...

    I am also not a doctor. The point however is what was the advice, and I have yet to hear it. Perhaps you are suggesting to stay away from fiber, if so, you can say that rather than attack my advice, because it just complicates things.

    During times when I was flaring, I had loud gurgling noises that were caused by my strictures. Sometimes a pressure or pain would build up and then it would be released by very loud gurgling.
