COMPARISON OF NITROGEN LEVELS IN NORMAL FAECES AND FAECES INFECTED BY ASCARIS LUMBRICOIDES AND TRICHURIS TRICHURA
Keywords:Nitrogen, Worm Egg Positive Stool, Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura
Nitrogen is part of the main building blocks of protein in the human body. Nitrogen is formed from the
breakdown of protein by the body. Nitrogen levels in the body will be disrupted if the absorption of nutrients is
disturbed by the body, for example during a worm infection. The purpose of this study was to determine the ratio
of nitrogen levels in the feces of patients with Ascariasis and Trichuriasis infections and normal feces. The
results showed that the nitrogen content in the feces infected with worms included sample A of 0.19%, sample B
obtained a nitrogen content of 2.16%, and sample C of 2.05% with an average of 1.46% while the nitrogen in
normal stool specimens obtained results of sample A of 0.19%, sample B of 0.24% and sample C of 0.25% with
an average of 0.22%. This indicates an increase in nitrogen levels in the body due to ascariasis and trichuriasis
infections in the body
