Question:

Any long term problems from diastasis recti?

Answer:

No. Diastasis recti is a benign condition. There are no risks like those associated with hernias. But it is associated with central obesity which is a risk factor for other health problems. Lose weight. Excercise without losing weight does not improve a diastasis.
