Abstract

In Indonesia, the prevalence of iron nutrition anemia in adolescent girls aged 13-18 years is 22.7%. The cause is chronic blood loss, lack of iron intake, inadequate absorption of iron, and increased need for iron. Anemia causes a decrease in immunity, the concentration of learning, fitness, and productivity in young women. If allowed to affect the future such as pregnancy with anemia and the effect on babies born, the purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of iron intake, menstrual length, and age of menarche to the incidence of anemia in adolescent girls. This type of observational analytic study with Case-Control design with a total sample of 56 adolescent girls. The results showed that nutrient intake was less risky 0.551 times (95% CI 0.139-2.179) having moderate anemia compared to adolescents with adequate iron intake. Conclusion there is a significant relationship between iron intake and the incidence of anemia in adolescent girls. Suggestions for young women to increase iron intake by consuming foods that contain balanced nutrition.
