59% Indian women are anaemic: Study
MUMBAI: A study to analyze women who have undergone preventive health check-ups across the country show that anaemia and vitamin D deficiency are rampant across different age groups. Both may lead to several ailments, ranging from mild aches and fatigue to bone diseases and even cancer.
As many as 59% women were found to be anaemic in the country, with the eastern region having a significantly higher prevalence at 72.12% than the rest of the country.
Around 45% women from the western region were found to be severely lacking in adequate haemoglobin levels in blood. Around 25 lakh women had undergone testing for anaemia between 2012 and 2014.
Among women who underwent lipid profile tests, around 31% were found to have at least one abnormal parameter. Here too, women from eastern India topped the list with 34.8% having abnormal levels of triglycerides, LDL, HDL or complete cholesterol. Women from the western region fared better here with nearly 70% showing the right levels.
The thyroid disorder was found to be present among 27% of the women tested from across the country.
The survey also found that the deficiency of vitamin D was rampant with 76% across the country having lower levels.

Start eating meat specly beef major source of nutrients and see numbers fall!
The food eating habit of the modern young women with the intention of not putting weight might have caused this situation.However it is upto the medical profession to come out wit more reasons for this situation. doodu
people who dont eat meat, fish and poultry are prone to anaemia.
And all these are the results of Dieting. Girls in their young age do not eat to maintain figure for marriage. Once married, for delivery eat everything and put of weight and then to reduce it again eat less. The missing element in all is exercise and physical fitness which they don't have. Now all the work is done by machines washing, mixer grinder etc....
No need of this kind of report, need solution and action.
mite b due to wrong food habits
Healthy women needed for a healthy society, a healthy generation, but can not afford to ignore it.
That's why you all need to eat Beef. Instead of banning it as cows as gods.Already millions starving due to lack of proper diet.
Many Indian women and Men are now very fat. It is because many eat unhealthy food. Even the slum people are very fat.
