Hyperacidity and stomach bloating after meals causing breathlessness and tachycardia

Is there a relationship between untreated insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes and hyper-acidity resulting in a bloated stomach causing breathlessness and tachycardia?

The reason I am putting up this question is that my OGTT indicated insulin resisatance/diabetes (blood glucose 202 mg/dl at 2 hours) and I started on metformin 500 SR 8 hourly + light exercize; the result was complete remission of the acidity and the bloated stomach and the resulting tachycardia and breathlessness [ I had been suffering from this condition for over a year ].

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Diabetes can cause autonomic neuropathy and affect the digestive system, leading to problems with digestion and elimination. It causes slower motility of the intestinal tract. So, good glycemic control with medications can revert these changes, hence causing decreased bloating of the gastrointestinal tract and resolution of symptoms.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
