A bloated tummy is sometimes linked to heart failure.
While there are certain symptoms people with heart failure experience more commonly, bloating can be a sign of more severe heart failure.
Congestive symptoms, such as bloating, occur because the heart can no longer pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs, which causes poor blood circulation, explains Michigan Medicine.
It continues: “Abdominal bloating can result from fluid backup in your liver, which makes your abdomen feel swollen or tender, stomach, which causes decreased appetite, bloating, and nausea, and intestines, which causes decreased appetite and poor absorption of medicines and food.”
