Abstract

The prevalence of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) diagnosed by WHO criterion (2-hPG ≥ 7.8 mmol/L) was 13.4%. By International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups criteria of FPG ≥ 5.1 mmol/L, prevalence of GDM was 3.2%. FPG may not be suitable for diagnosis of GDM in Asian Indians due to high insulin resistance in addition to pregnancy hormonal effect.
