Before I was officially diagnosed, I went to see an Iridiologist (diagnosis via the eyes). Interestingly he said I had a 'leaky gut', meaning I made noises after I ate as it was due to me not absorbing nutrients properly and that I 'pass food through that can be identifiable'.
I just make jokes about my stomach if it goes off too much after lunch. Most males around me seem to be impressed that my stomach can make such high level decibles I tell them they should hear me belch !!!!
