The authors of the study note that over 11 years of school life, the prevalence of functional abnormalities in children increased by almost 15%, and chronic diseases were diagnosed by 52.8% more often.

Among boys and young men, diseases such as gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, obesity, flat feet, bronchial asthma and hypertension are most common.

In turn, girls and girls are more susceptible to such health disorders as weight loss, headaches, neurosis, myopia.

The study also showed that, from a psychological point of view, the 1st and 3rd grades and 11th grades became the most intense period of training for boys. For girls - the period from the 9th to 11th grade.
