Out of all the study subjects, 81.66% subjects were having low digestive power which is suggestive of indigestion. AtiKatu (pungent) diet in 76.66 % was the most common dietary factor causing indigestion. In adolescents, peoples usually do excessive, less or irregular diet and sleep during day time, which leads to Tridosha Dushti mainly Samana Vayu, Pachaka Pitta and Kledaka Kapha.
