60% girls in Delhi colleges anaemic

first_imgWhen 18-year-old Anu (name changed) stood in a queue at Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College for a blood test, she had no idea that she would be detected with “severe” anaemia, which is risky, according to doctors. “I never thought I had anaemia. I did not feel any of its symptoms,” she said.About 60% of female students in Delhi colleges are anaemic — well above the national average — according to an analysis of data collected from ongoing anaemia detection and awareness camps of the Delhi government accessed by The Hindu. The findings, which are yet to be made public, are based on tests on a total of 5,224 female students in 12 city colleges, of whom 3,128 (59.9%) were found to be anaemic. The national average of anaemia among women between 15 and 49 years is 53% and in Delhi it’s 54.3%, according to National Family Health Survey-4. While the national average came down from 55.3% to 53% between NFHS-3 and NFHS-4, it rose from 44.3% to 55.3% in Delhi. “Anaemia can cause weakness, breathlessness, lack of concentration and if the haemoglobin level falls quickly over a few days, it can even lead to cardiac failure,” said Dr. Nitin Gupta, senior consultant, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. The students found anaemic during the camps have been referred to nearest government hospitals for treatment. Also, the health department has asked all State government-run hospitals to make sure that students detected with “severe” anaemia are provided “out-of-queue treatment”. ‘IFA tablets for colleges’State programme officer (adolescent health) Dr. Gautam Singh agreed that the percentage of women with anaemia is indeed very high. “We plan to extend distribution of IFA tablets to colleges,” he said.During the camps, 94 of the 3,128 female students were detected with “severe” anaemia.last_img read more

10 months agoTottenham boss Pochettino: We deserved Cardiff win for sheer effort

first_imgTottenham boss Pochettino: We deserved Cardiff win for sheer effortby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was delighted with the passion of his players for their 3-0 win at Cardiff City.Harry Kane had previously scored at least once against 27 of the 28 Premier League opponents he had faced, with Cardiff the solitary team he had failed to net against in three previous encounters.But Kane needed only two and a half minutes to put that record straight on New Year’s Day, and further goals from Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min provided a swift panacea to the pain of losing 3-1 at home to Wolves on Saturday.Pochettino said: “We felt disappointed (after Wolves loss) and we wanted to show our energy from the beginning. After 20 minutes we showed how we wanted to play and were clinical.”We suffered with four games in 10 days. I want to congratulate the players. I’m so pleased with the effort.”Today we showed great energy and maturity that we want. Now we need to keep that level and consistency throughout the season if we want to be there and fight for big things.”It’s a crazy fixture (list) – its normal that in some games we can drop our mental energy. We were so relaxed and kept calm, it was so important. We showed Wolves was just an accident.”The most important thing is to find a way to be consistent if we want to be a contender. We need to believe more in us. We are in a process of doing fantastic things.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Hong Kong economy cools as trade tension mounts

first_imgHong Kong’s economic growth slowed in the latest quarter and the government warned it could face headwinds from U.S.-Chinese trade tension and higher interest rates.Government data Friday showed the Chinese territory’s economy expanded by 2.9 per cent over a year earlier, down from the previous quarter’s 3.5 per cent.Exports rose 5 per cent over a year earlier, but the government said the impact of trade tension and weaker global demand “has begun to surface” and is “likely to become more apparent in the near-term.”The government said Hong Kong also faces a drag from higher interest rates. The Hong Kong dollar has a fixed exchange rate with the U.S. dollar, which requires the central bank to raise interest rates along with the U.S. Federal Reserve even though economic growth is slowing.The Associated Presslast_img
