Abstract

The residents of several cities and villages in Bangladesh underwent e-health checkups. The distribution of Hb increased from the first hemoglobin (Hb) measurement to the second, and some women recovered from severe anemia. A strong effect was observed in subjects who were prescribed iron supplements. The mean blood pressure improved after the first health examination, and the blood sugar level increased. In countries with shortages of health practitioners and health care providers, e-health examinations and instructions may be useful interventions because they make people health conscious and improve their health status.
