ABSTRACT

Objective: Early diagnosis of gestational diabetes, through evaluating risk factors associated with it, is very significant. The current study aimed to determine the correlation between glucose challenge tests and early and mid-pregnancy body mass index. Methods: This retrospective analytic study was carried out on 272 singleton pregnant women who referred to community oriented center in Kermanshah Medical sciences university during a year (2010- 2011). To this end, required information, including age, parity, early and mid-pregnancy body mass index, was gathered. The association between results of glucose challenge test and variables were analyzed by SPSS software and binary logistic regression statistically tests were used in this research. Results: Statistical assessment according to Binary variable regression demonstrated that there is a significant correlation between early BMI and GCT impaired (P=0.007). Also, the results demonstrated that there are statistically significant correlation between mid-pregnancy BMI and GCT impaired (P= 0.01). Conclusions: Findings showed that higher pre-pregnancy body mass index leads to impaired glucose challenge test more than weight gain during pregnancy. Therefore, to achieve ideal weight pre-pregnancy, there is a need for designing appropriate strategies.
