Methods: A questionnaire based survey was carried out at specific local areas of district Muzaffarnagar of Uttar Pradesh, India, during the period between October and December, 2022. In this survey, urban women were involved from four age groups, group (A): 25-35 years with 6.1 h/d standing period, group (B): 36-45 years with 5.2 h/d standing, group (C): 46-55 years with 4.8 h/d standing, group (D): 56-65 years with 3.3 h/d standing. Results: In four age groups, women were very commonly suffered from the lower back pain, arthritis and joint pain, hypothyroidism, low blood pressure, and the hypotension problems. The working standing period decreased in aged women, however, the degree or extent of health risks were elevated in these women with the age-dependent manner. Notably, the percentage of urban women was enhanced for each health issue, age-dependently. Also, all the urban women suffered from calcium and vitamin D3 deficiency. Moreover, the feet swelling problem or edema were reported in older age women. Conclusion: This study concludes that the health risks enhance with the increase in the age of women.
