Hard and Easy (1/17)

The following teasers end up with the same answer. The first is hard and the second is easy (or at least harder and easier).

1) I'm thinking of an eight-letter word which deals with the body and is composed of two smaller four-letter words. Three letters from the first four letters are repeated in a different order in the last four letters. The two remaining letters from the first and second half are consecutive letters in the alphabet.

What is the eight-letter word?

2) I've deleted repeating letters from the following eight-letter word:

_ _ _ D _ C _ _

Three different letters are used in the first three blanks and are then repeated in the last three blanks, albeit in a different order.

What's the word?
