Speaking about the report, Mr. Anand. K, Chief Executive Officer, SRL Diagnostics said “Women are the primary care takers of families across the world. It is observed that women suffer from poor health outcomes and this has consequences not just for women but also for their families. Our study on 1.3 crore samples tested over 5 years across 5 metro cities show that women suffer from most common ailments including high blood sugar and cholesterol levels, poor kidney function, anemia, vitamin D deficiency and calcium deficiency. We have published this report to showcase data evidence that points to these conditions and deficiencies.”

Women bear the dual responsibility of being the primary caregivers at home in addition to their role in the professional sphere. This Women’s Day, we have analysed and published data so that more women can understand their risks and prioritise their own health and well-being. Regular monitoring of vital parameters, balanced nutrition, time for self-care and physical exercise is important.”
