Many working women come to our clinic with various complaints. Here are the top 3 complaints that they usually present with. This blog aims to create awareness about these issues, mention the causes, and give solutions to prevent/correct them.

  1. Hormonal issues – like PCOS, Hypothyroid

The human body has multiple hormones which perform different functions. Here are a few causes that can affect a female hormonal cycle.

Signs and symptoms – irregular periods, weight gain, acne, pigmentation of the face, depression, etc.

2. Digestive issues

Causes – lack of fresh home-cooked food, frequent junk food, packaged food, physical inactivity, skipping meals (esp. breakfast), late-night dinners, and restaurant food during office parties.

Also, consumption of alcohol leads to indigestion and liver issues

Signs and symptoms – Acidity (heartburn), constipation, gas (eructation, flatus), bloating, piles, fissures.

3. Joint issues

Causes – Laptop work, sitting on a chair for long, Vit D deficiency, calcium deficiency, physical inactivity.

Signs and symptoms – neck pain, spondylosis, heel pain, back pain, knee pain, sciatica, lethargy, tiredness, fatigue.

Simple solutions –

  • Have meals at a fixed time.
  • Try to have home-cooked meals as much as possible.
  • Avoid junk food, processed food, and packaged food.
  • For snacking – have fruits, coconut water, kurmura, khakra, dry fruits, etc.
  • Try to exercise at least 3 times a week – yoga, walking, Zumba, swimming, skipping, badminton, etc.
