This type of research is observational with a cross-sectional design. The sample is all mothers who have children in grades 3, 4, and 5 in the Buana Giri 7 public elementary school, totaling 80 people. Data were collected by interview, observation, and weighing methods. The quality of iodized salt was tested using the iodine test. Goiter grade was obtained by the palpation method. The data that has been collected were analyzed with Pearson correlation. The level of knowledge, attitude, and practice of iodized salt are still low so it needs to be improved. The level of availability of iodized salt on average still low (3.8 g/person/day) and the level of consumption of iodized salt (2.1 g/person/day). Goiter grade entire sample was normal. Behavior-related knowledge (r = 0.8) and practice (r = 0.8) of iodized salt, but the behavior is not related to the availability (r = 0.024) and iodized salt consumption (r = -0.09). Contributions behavior is very weak against the availability and consumption of iodized salt.</p> 2020-09-21T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijhs/article/view/449 Nutritional status of preterm neonates at discharge in sanglah hospital 2020-09-25T09:55:10+00:00 I Made Samitha Wijaya madesamithawijaya@gmail.com Made Sukmawati sukma_bali75@yahoo.co.id Putu Junara Putra junara72@yahoo.com I Made Kardana made_kardana@yahoo.com I Wayan Dharma Artana dharma.artana@yahoo.co.id <p style="text-align: justify;">The purpose of this study was to determine the nutritional status of preterm neonates when discharged from the hospital. A descriptive study was reviewed from the register of preterm neonate after hospitalization in neonatal ward Sanglah Hospital Denpasar. The number of total samples in this study was 190 patients. Most of the preterm neonates in this study were low birth weight (59.47%). At the beginning of the hospitalization, there were 83.86% preterm neonates with good nutritional status, decreased to 54.73% at discharge from the hospital. The group of neonates that had the highest number of decreases in the good nutritional status at discharge was found in 28-32 weeks gestational age. Most of the samples used breast milk for enteral feeding (68,42%). In preterm neonates with sepsis, only 42.52% neonates discharge with good nutritional status. Low birth weight preterm neonates with kangaroo method care were found increased weight gain in 78.57% neonates. The nutritional status of preterm neonates following hospitalization at Sanglah hospital is still not good. The preterm neonates with good nutritional status were decreased at discharge from the hospital.</p> 2020-09-21T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
