Nuts tend to be high in fat and protien and low in carbs.Mostly it is carbohydrates that cause gas.Does this eventually fart out? or are you just feeling bloated/distended but farting the usual amount?While they may not make you fart more frequently, it is possible they could be related to feeling more bloated than usual.Bloating and distension is only sometimes related to being full of gas. If it is gas the gas usually comes out eventually and farting relieves the pressure. If it is caused by other things you do not get relief from farting it all out.K.

Burping usually isn't from the food being digested by bacteria to produce gas.But sometimes how much air you swallow with different foods, or something else about the food might make you burpy afterwards, so there could be some association with nuts (assuming that the symptoms are quite different when the only thing you change is removing nuts from the diet)Does it matter if they are salted, or un-salted? Not sure why one might be different, but it might be something to test out.If it seems that the fat in the nuts might be what is making it easier to go you could try adding olive oil to a meal (or take flax-seed oil supplements) and see if that helps without the burping issue.Sometimes things like acid reflux or other stomach problems are involved with this sort of thing, so you might need that checked out.One other thing....sometimes with some medications I get that overly full stomach burping bloating thing (but seems to be all foods). Digestive enzyme supplements with pancreatic enzymes in that seemed to help for me. It might be something to try.K.

It might be something to try.I have the full,burping,bloating thing everyday,24-7,no matter what I eat or drink.I would like to try a digestive enzyme supplement but if my stomach is emptying sluggishly,I wonder if it would make a difference?

Pancreatic enzymes (the prescription ones) are used for stomach bloating, but I'm not sure if that is also used with gastroparesis (when the stomach is tested and doesn't empty right)....let me check the med lit and see...What I could find was mostly in healthy people, but there was a suggestion that it might stimulate gastric emptying...so it might be worth a shot. I do not think there would be much of a side effect risk (but I don't have solid data for that).K.
