THE EFFECT OF IRON SUPPLEMENTS THE EFFECT OF IRON SUPPLEMENTS WITH AND WITHOUT VITAMIN C TOWARDS PREGNANT WOMEN’S HEMOGLOBIN
Iron Supplements, Hemoglobin level
Iron is a major component in the formation of blood which in absorption requires a reducing agent such as vitamin C. This study explains the effect of iron supplementation with and without vitamin C to increase the hemoglobin level. The design of this research is quasy experiment. Measurements were performed 5 times with first measurement being a preliminary measurement before the action was performed. The action is giving iron with vitamin C in the first group and giving iron without vitamin C in the second group. The samples were pregnant women who visited the Mundi Asih Clinic as many as 25 people. Data were analyzed using General Linear Repeated Measure Model (GLM-RM). The results of this study showed that the average increase in Hemoglobin levels in the group given iron supplements alone was lower than the group given iron supplements with vitamin C. In the group given only iron supplements a significant increase in hemoglobin levels was seen between measurements third and fourth (p-value 0.001), between the fourth and fifth measurements (p-value 0.039). Whereas in the group given iron supplements with vitamin C a significant increase was seen between the second and third measurements (p-value 0.005), between the third and fourth measurements (p-value 0.000), between the fourth and fifth measurements (p-value 0.000 ). Giving iron supplements with vitamin C is more effective in increasing Hemoglobin levels of pregnant women. So, all pregnant women should be given iron supplements with vitamin C so that prevention of anemia is more effective
