My abdomen used to make sounds all the time. In fact, it was so bad that sometimes it sounded like there was a thunderstorm going on inside there.
I think these sounds are due to my liver having trouble digesting fructose or artificial sweeteners such as sorbitol and producing too much fluid as a result. I would often have diarrhea afterwards. The greater the sounds, the more diarrhea.
I have since found out that I am fructose intolerant and have stopped eating foods high in fructose. My abdomen no longer makes sounds.
Taking note of the sounds will help in determining what foods you may be sensitive to.
