Anemia Threatens Children's Intelligence

Anemia iron deficiency is generally caused due to malnutrition, poor food absorption, rapid growth of infants and adolescents, kecacingan, chronic infection, or disease that causes destruction of red blood cells. Anemia is a serious problem, According dr.Soedjatmiko, Sp.A (K), iron-deficient children in infancy has a risk of long-term growth and development of serious, such as impaired concentration and intelligence of children learning to decline. "Iron deficiency in the womb until age 2 years would interfere with the development of the branches and connections between brain cells so that the children of low intelligence," said Soedjatmiko.

Moreover, iron deficiency also inhibits the formation of neurotransmitters that are important for emotional control, concentration and behavior. "As a result, children prone to disorders such as aggressive behavior and low problem-solving capacity". 

Although anemia has been better known for causing the typical symptoms such as pale, weak, tired, and lethargic, but apparently according to Prof.Djajadiman, actually had iron deficiency can occur before causing symptoms. "When anemia occurs in the long term, despite low levels of hemoglobin, may not show typical symptoms because the body has to adapt."
He added, anemia does not happen overnight but through three stages. The first is the depletion of iron or iron deficiency early stages of the body. "At this stage the body's iron reserves began to decrease but still normal iron in the plasma as well as hemoglobin and hematocrit values," said him.

The next stage is iron deficiency without anemia in which the reserves of iron, iron in plasma was also reduced but hemoglobin is still normal. At the level of further iron deficiency anemia have occurred in which the iron in the plasma and hemogloin value has decreased.That is why, according to the actual examination Djajadiman hemoglobin alone is not enough to tell if a child has ADB or not. "It also examined the levels of serum ferritin shows total reserves of iron," added him.


Anemia is not addressed clearly will affect the quality of future generations because of the consequences of anemia in childhood will continue into adulthood. Currently IDAI has issued guidelines for iron supplementation to children and infants to avoid the ADB. Iron supplementation is also in line with WHO guidelines in 1998 stating that the prevalence of anemia was more than 40 percent should be given iron supplements without a screening done.

"If you just rely on foods that contain iron is not enough because the kids have to eat food in abundance, whereas the stomach capacity of a child," said Djajadiman. Do skirining on all children who are at risk of ADB also considered too expensive. Added by Soedjatmiko, iron supplementation has been shown to be safe. "Some research has demonstrated, in a low-dose iron supplementation is not harmful" she said. He cites the results of research in Chile to 1123 healthy infants who were born full term with normal hemoglobin levels and iron supplementation administered entirely. The result, babies who got the ax is not fussy and increased social interaction.

Iron supplementation, according to dr.Badriul Hegar, Sp.A (K), chairman IDAI, coupled with efforts to increase understanding of the dangers of anemia and prevention efforts. "Not only in terms of iron alone but improved diet as a whole, starting with pregnant women," said him.

eating quickly ?? be carefull for this habit

For people who have a habit of eating quickly, should be more carefull. Cause the habits are often carried away when we're eating food. In fact, some studies show that eating in a hurry can be bad, one of them being overweight (obesity).

A recent study proves that eating quickly can lead to diabetes in the elderly. That's because someone who used to spend a little chewed food by the number and then immediately swallowed up will increase the amount of sugar in the blood stream immediately. As a result, the body will be more prone to impaired glucose tolerance, also known as prediabetes.

Dr. Pradeep Ratnaparkhi, researchers are testing the topic outline, "The level of glucose in the blood in people with impaired glucose tolerance is higher than usual, so they are at high risk of diabetes," he said
prediabetes condition is not controlled it will quickly lead to type 2 diabetes. "In the past 10 years these people are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes with the percentage of 50 percent," he explained.

Pradeep added, eating too quickly can also lead to an increase in the number of calories consumed. This condition will eventually lead to weight gain which in turn is associated with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Instead, by eating slowly someone usually will feel full faster.

Ratnaparkhi suggested, "Healthy eating and regular exercise can help people with pre-diabetes to maintain glucose levels under control. So eat slowly to stay slim and fit".

Important rules while Drinking Juice

Drinking juice is helping us to benefit from the fruit in a practical way. We can obtain the benefits of various fruits without having to eat them one by one. Body is also more easily absorb the nutrients that exist in the juice. Thus, a healthy juice drink and be practical.
Fruit juice is one way to meet the needs of beneficial vitamins and minerals that boost immunity from disease. But, do not process them in order to gain the maximum benefit of the body. Apparently, there are rules to drink juice juice the maximum value for your health.

Important rules while Drinking Juice

Juice processing that is not true, the wrong time or wrong way of looking for the juice to make the juice is reduced to the body. In order for refreshment is not in vain, some rules in the juice drink, among others:

Juice is not a substitute for food 
When on a diet or health, it is okay to change your dinner with a glass of juice. But, that does not mean breakfast and lunch as well just drink the juice with the intention to lose weight. Nutritional needs still to be met from other foods. Fruits will not be able to meet the needs of 1800 kcal, the minimum number of calories that must be met in a day. As a result, the immune compromised.
Although weight loss may be decreased drastically, but will quickly eat up time with the original pattern. Because the juice does not reduce the fat, just reduce the water in the body.

Acid juice is not for the morning 
Glad you opened the day by drinking juice in the morning? Indeed, the morning is the best time to drink the juice, because fruit juice contains lots of water and fiber that will be beneficial for digestion. In order not to upset stomach, avoid acidic fruits for juice in the morning. Banana, papaya, apples or carrots may be the right choice for fruit juice in the morning.
Not a substitute for fruit juice 
Drinking juices and over again, without directly consuming the fruit is not good. This can increase body weight. The need to keep taking the fresh fruit beneficial to the stomach, because during the process of chewing, stomach going to work and burn approximately 20 kcal. So, keep the consumption of fresh fruit, not all can be replaced with juice.

Juice is not necessarily low in calories 
Does not mean all the fruit is low in calories and will help your diet. Fruits such as avocado, jackfruit and durian fruit is high in calories, which is about 200 kcal. If you want juice with a low calorie, can pick oranges, apples, melon, watermelon or pear calorie content of about 80 kcal. If overweight, you should choose a low calorie fruit juice.

Juice drink with pulp
 If you make juice using a juicer, the waste would be separated. Although it may feel uncomfortable, do not waste the fruit pulp that has been separated. If using a blender, do not strain to get any water, let the dregs remained mixed and drunk. In the fruit pulp fiber and vitamins contained, the most common is vitamin C. It is very beneficial for the body.
Juice should not be stored for a long time
Juice that has been made should be taken. Create a new juice and drink in the afternoon or evening lowers the benefits of juice. Vitamins that there can be damaged by oxygen and ultraviolet that are around us. If you can not directly consume the juice, it can be done by making cold juice as possible, then stored in a sealed aluminum thermos. Cold conditions and protection from light to help maintain vitamin that is on the juice for 4 hours.
Juice with more variety   
Do not just make the juice from the fruit that's it. For example, because you like oranges, every day they drink only juice orange juice. Replace it with other fruits that contain different vitamins and minerals for the body to benefit. Combines a variety of fruit in one glass of juice is a practical way for the body to gain some benefit in a single gulp. A mixture of oranges and apples, bananas and apples, carrots and tomatoes, or apples and grapes are a combination that can be tried for giving some benefits as well.

Does not always have fruit juice
Vegetables can be made into juice. Bitter taste in the vegetables can be overcome by combining vegetables with fruit, so it feels more fresh.
Not only vegetables, juice can be a combination of fruit and spices. For example, by adding ginger to warm the body also increase endurance. Can also add a little cinnamon on your juice.
Use the juice of fresh fruits 
In order to obtain the maximum benefits, use fresh fruits or vegetables that are still in fresh condition. Do not they see the fruit or vegetables begin to wilt, then out of love finally made juice. This will make the juice quality is reduced.
Juice with added sugar, honey or milk
To add to the enjoyment of juice, usually added sugar, honey or milk. There are a few rules if you want to add the juice with one of these partners. Consider the amount of sugar or honey to be used or the choice of milk.

If you want to add the sugar, try to remember first is how much sugar you eat today. Ideally, your body may only receive 50 grams of sugar per day. One teaspoon of sugar, weighing about 4 grams. If you already enjoy a morning of ice cream, cookies, cake or sweet tea, adjust the sugar to be added to the juice to avoid excess sugar consumption.

Honey is a natural sweetener that contains carbohydrates, protein, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. But the calorie content of honey is greater than the sugar. One tablespoon of honey has 64 calories kcal. So, if you want to add honey, preferably only in small portions, especially flavor of honey is sweeter than sugar.
Add juice to the juice to get additional milk protein, calcium and fat from milk. To consider is the type of milk to be added. If there are no problems with weight, it can use full cream milk. In contrast, the use of low fat milk if you want to maintain weight and that fat is not excessive.

Choose The Right Juice
