Agustina Setia1, I Dewa Putu Pramantara2, Retno Pangastuti3


: A major physiological change during aging is decreasing need of energy which occurs as a consequence of decreasing lean body mass and physical activity. This process affects absorption level. Nutrition has an important role in improving physical fitness, preventing degenerative diseases, and minimizing dependence. Decreasing fitness among the elderly may be overcome through physical exercise, sufficient nutrient intake, autonomy and mobility in undertaking daily activities.
Objective : This research was aimed to improve knowledge, attitude and behavior of mother of children under five years old who joint the health information with audiovisual media, module and control as well as to find out the different level of the improvement before and after intervention.
Method : The study was observational with cross sectional design. Subject of the study based on inclusion criteria were the elderly aged more than 60 years old, could do daily activities, had no acute diseases. Exclusion criteria were those who had heart disease, lung disease, cognitive disorder, and mobility disorder. Data of nutrient intake were obtained from food record processed with computer program. Data of nutrition status were measured with body mass index, haemoglobin level with cyanmethemoglobin, and daily activities with functional independence measurement. Fitness level was measured using 6 minute-walk test. Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation and multiple regression test.
Result : The study showed that there were 10 variables significantly related to physical fitness of the elderly, i.e. energy intake (p=0.009, r=0,368), protein intake (p=0.012, r=0.354), carbohydrate intake (p=0.036, r=0.297), vitamin B12 intake (p=0.000, r=0.691), vitamin D intake (p=0.001, r=0.455), folic acid intake (p=0.005, r=0.394), iron intake (p=0.000, r=0.540), age (p=0.002, r=-0.428), haemoglobin level (p=0.003, r=0.410), activities of daily living (p=0.000, r=0.800), but intake of fat and vitamin B6 were not. Body mass index statistically had no significant relationship (p>0.05) with elderly fitness level. Multiple regression analysis showed that the most influential variables that made the elderly unfit were protein intake (p=0.012 and B= -3.730), vitamin B12 intake (p=0.000 and B=10.352), folic acid intake (p=0.045 and B=7.085), activities of daily living (p=0.000 and B=8.014).
Conclusion : High protein intake, vitamin B12 intake, folic acid intake, and activities of daily living increased physical fitness of the elderly at Budi Agung Charitable House, Kupang.

Key words : aging, energy intake, nutrient intake, nutritiona status, haemoglobin, daily activities, fitness

La Banudi1, Ahmad Husain Asdie2, Susetyowati3


: Chronic kidney disease is a characterized by decreasing kidney function with creatine clearance test <15 mL/minute. At such condition toxic in the body accumulates so that dialysis is needed to eliminate it. Blood albumin serum level may indicate nutrition status and is closely related to morbidity and mortality of hemodialysis patients.
Objective : To find out association between albumin serum level and occurrence of morbidity and mortality among patients of chronic kidney disease with hemodialysis.
Method : The study was observational with prospective cohort design. It was conducted at Dialysis Installation of Dr. Sardjito Hospital from August 2004 to December 2005. Population were all patients of hemodialysis. Samples were purposively taken using inclusion criteria with as many as 44 minimal samples. Dependent variables were morbidty and mortality. Independent variables were albumin serum level, age and long time hemodialysis. Data analysis was done in phases, univariable, and then bivariable.
Result : There was association between albumin serum level and morbidity at observation I (p=0.021), observation II (p=0.036), and observation III (p=0.012) which indicated that p<0.05. There was also association between albumin serum level and mortality at observation I (p=0.011), observation II, III and IV (p=0.000) which indicated that p<0.05.
Conclusion : There was association between albumin serum level and morbidity and mortality of chronic kidney disease patients with hemodialysis.

Mohammad Shoim1, Endy P. Prawirohartono2, Madarina Julia2


: Optimum growth and development reflects the interaction among genetics, environments, attitude factors, and positive stimulations. Positive effect of massage on infant growth has long been recognized, but research on this phenomenon has not much been performed. The growth faltering in children begins at 1-6 months of age in Indonesia.
Objective : To identify the effect of massage toward weight gain in infants of 4 months old.
Method : The study was quasi experimental with 2 groups of posttest design. The subjects were infants of 4 months old that were born in two hospitals. Those who were born in one hospital were selected as the control group and the rest were selected as the treatment group. The massage was performed twice a week for four weeks. The data of weight, food intake, illness were collected once a week, whereas the data of mothers’ knowledge and attitude toward breast milk were gathered once during the research period.
Result : There was a significant effect of massage on weight gain. The median weight gain of the control group and treatment group were 0.40 kg (Q1=0.35; Q3=0.40) and 0.60 kg (Q1=0.50; Q3=0.70) respectively. The massage also affected the waz (weight for age Z-scores) where the median difference of waz at the beginning and the end of the study of the control group was –0.27 (Q1=-0.34; Q3=-0.23), whereas in the treatment group was -0.03 (Q1=-0.13; Q3=0.09). It meant that control group faced the growth faltering of –0.27 SD waz in a month and treatment group did it for –0.03 SD waz in a month.
Conclusion : Infants who got massage treatment had higher weight gain than those who did not.

Key words : massage, weight gain, infants of 4 months old
