Abstract

Background: Stress prevalence increases by 5% in 15-year-olds and over in Surabaya. Stress causing
negative effects is called distress. It may affect teenagers’ nutritional status without considering their
diet, leading to growth inhibition if it occurs continuously. It follows Riskesdas’s (2013) data stating
that 13-15-year-olds have a nutritional status of 3.3% very thin, 7.8% thin, 8.3% overnutrition, and
2.5% obese. Therefore, this study aimed to discover the relationship between stress level and nutritional
status at SMP Negeri 56 Surabaya due to its dense academic and non-academic activities. Based on
JPNN.com, several students hurt themselves using a blade due to psychological problems. Methods:
This study used an observational analytical study design through a cross-sectional approach. Data
collection was performed using the DASS-21 questionnaire and weight and height measurements, then
analyzed using the Pearson Correlation or Rank Spearman test. Conclusion: the stress level was not
related to the nutritional status of eighth-grade students of SMP Negeri 56 Surabaya, observed from the
current nutritional status (BB/U), past nutritional status (TB/U), and body proportion (IMT/U).
