3. Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and stomach bloating

Polycystic kidney disease is another cause of stomach bloating. PKD is featured with multiple cysts in kidneys. If these cysts keep growing persistently, it may cause stomach bloating. As for the treatment of PKD, the treatment should aim to shrink kidney cysts. As long as kidney cysts can be shrunk to an ideal size, stomach bloating will be managed.
