The most frequent condition was water retention at 17%, followed by sinusitis at 11% and oedema at 9%.

Bloating, stress and liposuction were also quite common.

Sydromes related to the reproductive system were fairly frequent so combining PCOS, reproductive issues, painful periods and endometriosis, the percentage would be 10% of the total, ie, the 3rd main condition after water retention and sinusitis.
