Do you live in London and are you affected by an illness that you’re embarrassed about? If so, fear not – you’re certainly not the only one.
Pharmacy Outlet recently commissioned research among more than 2,000 UK adults, asking them if they had ever suffered from a wide range of every day (but sometimes embarrassing) illnesses. The findings were remarkable, demonstrating just how commonplace many ailments are. What’s more, our research delved whereabouts in the country certain conditions were most prevalent.
In the study, which you may have noticed featured in both the Daily Express and The Metro last week, we found that Londoners were most at risk for eight of the ten illnesses we quizzed respondents about. Only when it came to incontinence and constipation or diarrhoea did the capital not have the highest proportion of people suffering from the problem – in both of these cases it was in fact Northern Ireland that experienced the biggest issues.
