Burping after meals can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'troubling' to 'needs attention'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose burping after meals, we could:
|Lactose Intolerance||4%||Ruled out|
|Stomach Acid Deficiency||3%||Ruled out|
