Abstract:

Iron has an important role in various metabolic processes and as a central structure of hemoglobin (Hb) for the process of transporting oxygen. Malnutrition from the beginning of pregnancy until the end of pregnancy will cause problems with labor, premature birth, low birth weight in infants to maternal death. The importance of examining serum Ferritin levels as early detection of iron deficiency anemia is especially carried out before pregnancy or early pregnancy (trimester I), given the high incidence of iron deficiency anemia in pregnant women and its impacts. The purpose of this study is to look at the relationship of iron consumption with Ferritin levels in first-trimester pregnant women in Agam Regency in 2018. This research is observational with cross-sectional study. The study was conducted at the Biomedical Laboratory of Andalas University from February 2019 to January 2020 with a sample of 60 respondents. Sampling is done by consecutive sampling technique. Measurement of daily iron consumption with FFQ interviews, and measurement of Ferritin levels using ELISA. Data were analyzed using Person correlation test and abnormal data with non-parametric Person correlation test. 17 respondents (28.3%) with iron RDA <30 mg, and 43 respondents (71.7%) with iron RDA sufficient. 17 respondents (28.3%) with Ferritin levels <30 µg/L and 43 respondents (71.7%) with enough Ferritin. It was found that there was a significant relationship between iron consumption with Ferritin levels in first-trimester pregnant women with a p-value = 0.003 (p<0.05), with a correlation value of 0.373 which indicates the direction of a positive relationship with weak strength. There was a significant relationship between iron consumption and Ferritin levels in first-trimester in pregnant women with correlation values indicating a positive relationship with weak strength.
