Lybrate Healthscape India has conducted the survey among 50 million interactions that happened between doctors and patients on the platform over a period of 12 months. It emphasized the need for timely care before it becomes a major problem in India.

The survey showed that more than half the percentage of people reached out to them for issues related to either sexual or mental health. The top seven health issues in the country are sexual (32%), mental (21%), lifestyle-related (15%), diet & nutrition (12%), women's health (11%), skin health (5%) and child health (4%).

The data showed that women were not as open as men to discuss problems about mental and sexual health. People in Delhi consulted doctors more about sexual health while those in Mumbai reached out to them for issues related to mental health. In Bangalore, the topmost priority was lifestyle-related issues, but this did not top minds of people in Kolkata. Also, men in metros paid more attention to lifestyle-related issues compared to women who were rather concerned about diet and nutrition, while sexual health topped minds of both the gender.
