  1. These multimorbidity combinations are mutually exclusive. For instance, the count for ‘anxiety and depression’ will include women with exactly these two conditions only, it does not include women with combinations of ‘anxiety, depression’ and other condition/s
  2. a The percentage of asthma and migraine multimorbidity combination is higher when considering physical health conditions only as it would include combination of these conditions with mental health conditions which are no longer accounted for
  3. GORD Gastroesophageal reflux disease
