My lower stomach slightly bulges. Is this from loose skin or just stomach fat?

My lower stomach slightly bulges. Is this from loose skin or just stomach fat?

Belly Bulge: Usually the lower belly bulges because below the belly button, there is less internal support for the abdominal wall. This makes the internal organ bulge slightly and is often more pronounced following pregnancy. It can be corrected with tightening of the fascia during abdominoplasty surgery. Weight loss can help as well as exercises such as crunches and leg lifts. ...Read more

Make sure you're not drinking alcohol, coffee, acidic stuff like soda, and eat bland foods that do not make you feel worse. Good luck! ...Read more

Stomach pains when eating especially when eat large amounts of food. I am also constipated. Can this cause oesophagus  and stomach scarring?

Slow down a bit.: We can't diagnose this with the available information. If you are severely constipated (obstipation) that could account for some of these symptoms. If you are symptomatic than recommend eating smaller amounts more often. Recommend increasing fiber in diet, increasing fluid intake & being more physically active. Without knowing what the condition is - don't know if scarring is a possibility. If ...Read more

Also decreasing alcohol intake helps. Make sure to exercise regularly as well. A good rule of thumb is 300 calories 5 x a day max. Also make sure you are in good health first before starting with your dr as well. ...Read more
