I have a place in high altitude and always have bad stomach issues. What can I do to prevent this?
At altitude your body needs more oxygen to compensate for lower oxygen levels in the air. People that live at that altitude develop more blood cells so more oxygen is available to your body. Mountain sickness as it is commonly called is the bodies reaction to a sudden decrease in oxygen levels. So the body does things like shunt blood from non-vital areas of your body. The stomach is one of those things so many experience nausea, shortness of breath and even chest pain for some. Eat small frequent meals while your body adjusts and report any serious effects like shortness of breath. This was a simplified explanation but should answer your question
