Candidiasis disease caused by the fungus Candida albicans is a health problem in Indonesia. The chronic nature of the disease gets worse if it is accompanied by a fungal infection, which usually goes undiagnosed and untreated. Culture techniques can be used to identify the fungus Candida albicans. Mushroom culture in the laboratory requires a medium containing nutrients such as a carbohydrate source and a nitrogen source for growth. These nutrients can be found in bamboo shoots which contain high carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, and crude fiber. So that bamboo shoots can be used as raw material for alternative mushroom growth media. The purpose of this study was to utilize bamboo shoots as a medium for the growth of Candida albicans herbal medicine. This research included collecting bamboo shoots, making rice bran media, inoculation of Candida albicans fungus on bamboo shoots media, and observing fungal growth. Candida albicans fungal colonies were confirmed by macroscopic and microscopic observations. The results showed that the fungus Candida albicans grew on both media, namely Bamboo Shoots Flour Media and Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) media at 37oC for 48 hours. The conclusion of this study is that bamboo shoots media can be used as a medium for fungal growth. Bamboo shoots media can be used as an alternative medium for synthetic media to grow Candida albican

An unhealthy lifestyle can lead to chronic diseases, one of which is diabetes such as smoking habits, excessive alcohol consumption and careless eating habits. Diabetes is a non-communicable disease caused by the pancreas not functioning properly to produce insulin normally. HbA1c is a glycated hemoglobin and a subfraction resulting from the binding of a different glucose molecule to the HbA molecule (hemoglobin in adults), which increases with the average blood sugar concentration. This study aims to look at the differences in HbA1c levels in venous blood with the EDTA and Heparin immunofluency methods. The type of research used is pure experiment. This research was conducted in the Clinical Pathology Laboratory (PK) IKesT Muhammadiyah Palembang with a total of 29 samples. The results of research that has been done on Examination of HbA1c Levels Using Venous Blood with EDTA Anticoagulant and Heparin Immunofluency Method can be concluded that the average HbA1C value in the EDTA Anticoagulant sample is 7.9%, while the average HbA1C value in the Heparin Anticoagulant sample is 7. 8%. The Wilcoxon test obtained a p value ≤0.050 with a value of 0.021. The conclusion of this study was that there were differences in HbA1C levels in the EDTA and Heparin anticoagulant samples. Examination of HbA1c levels should use EDTA and Heparin anticoagulants because there are no anticoagulant particles that can affect the results of the examination and can provide accurate results because getting the average value of HbA1c levels is not too far away
