Stomach growls louder than usual

Is this normal or a sign of aging????!!!!

It usually happenes AFTER I eat. I thought a growling stomach is for when you're hungry? It's not as quiet as it used to be. I could hear it from across the room! ...wait...'s WITH me, but sometimes it SEEMS like one can hear it from across the room

Happens almost everyday and I can't get it to be quiet. I eat the same as usual...nothing new or different.

Digestive systems make noise constantly. Some we hear, some we don't. When a patient has a growling stomach, I ask them if they missed a meal or if it's a processing sound.

No answers but you aren't alone

I've had a noisy belly my whole life, not all the time but fairly often.

Surely not a sign of aging in your case.
