English translation:celiac affection
Explanation:
It's a gastroitnestinal medical term that fits quite nicely with your other two conditions:

meteorismo = meteorism, i.e., the presence of gas in the abdomen or intestines; also known as "tympanites";
afectaçao = celiac affection, i.e., nontropical sprue (which is an intestinal malabsorption syndrome), also known as celiac disease;
flatulencia = flatulence, i.e., the presence of excessive amounts of air or gases in the stomach or intestine, leading to distention of the organs

Hope this helps!
