ABSTRACT:
Aim and Objective: The objective of the study is to assess the effect of health education and iron supplementation on haemoglobin (Hb) and haematocrit (Hct) levels in adolescent girls. Methods: Prospective observational study was conducted in adolescent girls (13-19 years) in the selected schools of kanchipuram district. Group A received iron with folic acid supplementation whereas group B subjects received health education along with iron and folic acid supplementation. Hb concentration and Hct values were estimated using digital haemoglobin testing system at baseline and follow up (3 months later). Results: On the comparative assessment of iron supplementation with health education and iron supplementation alone, the present study showed a statistical significant increase in Hb and Hct levels in group B compared to group A subjects. Conclusion: In conclusion, our findings suggest that health education and weekly iron folate supplementation can improve the Hb and Hct levels and also health education should be a part of our education system for the improving the health status of adolescent girls.
