Efficacy of varied pace running and iron supplementation on hematocrit, ferritin and transferrin saturation among college women students
AUTHOR(S): Dr. P Samraj
To achieve the purpose of the study the investigator randomly selected 60 women students of GSS Jain College for Women, Chennai in the age group of 18 to 23 years. The independent variables used in the present study were two experimental variables namely varied pace running and iron supplementation. The dependent variables selected were three biochemical variables related to iron namely hematocrit, ferritin and transferrin saturation and they were estimated by adopting standard method in reputed laboratory during before and after training. The chosen 60 subjects were divided into three equal groups consisting of 20 each on random basis. For group I, varied pace running was given for 12 weeks, for group II in addition to same varied pace running iron supplementation was given. Based on the advise of a doctor the required level of eight mg to eleven mg iron capsule of Livogen was given for five days a week for 12 weeks. Placebo capsule was given to group I. Control group was kept idle. The study was formulated as a randomized double – blind placebo 3x2 factorial design. The Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was computed for the data collected form three grops during pre and post tests. Further Scheffe’s test was used as a Post Hoc test. It was concluded that the varied pace running with iron supplementation has improved hematocrit significantly, the varied pace running with iron supplementation has improved ferritin significantly and the transferrin saturation has improved significantly due to varied pace running with iron supplementation.
