Pain in lower abdome: Is it all the time or does it come and go? Is it related to Bowel movements. Is it getting worse. MANY reasons for this symptom. Do you still have appendix.

To some extent.: Truncal obesity is one of the major risk factors. There is a genetic predisposition, but just like with any case of obesity - it is a simple calory count math. If one uses more calories, then he or she consumes, the weight will reduce.

Duh!!!: You don't need to know because it will not help you care for yourself. Only if you are writing a research paper. For chronic pain begin a self-care with a wellness program of vits, magnesium glycinate, sleep hygiene, exercise, self massage, chiropractor, yoga, heat, epsom tub soaking, stretching all are needed. In my practice I use acupuncture and myofascial tissue release.

Liver: It is the largest chemical factory in the body so that besides making bile which is required to process your fats in your food, the liver changes the basic digested food compotents into proteins, complex fats and other essential products to help our body and helps detoxify other substances that may be harmful.
