Anemia or lack of blood is characterized by normal hemoglobin (Hb) levels, occurs in certain population groups including young women, pregnant and lactating women, and people with chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus (DM) and others. Various kinds of food ingredients both from plants and animals that are useful for controlling hemoglobin levels, especially plants or animals that contain ferrous (Fe) can bind Hb in the blood. Among the plants that contain Fe are spinach vegetables with a composition of 9.2 mg/100gram. To determine the effect of spinach chips as a snack that is useful for increasing Hb levels, it is necessary to conduct research to believe in this hypothesis. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of spinach chips on Hb levels in Diabetes Mellitus Patients at the Kadir Medika Clinic in 2020. The method used in this study was an experiment with a sample of 62 people consisting of a control group and an intervention group that had met the inclusion and exclusion criteria.
