The association of serum ferritin levels in predicting the outcome in GDM pregnancies
Author(s): Sharon Deepthi Rasquinha, Victor Rasquinha and Sanketh Dhumal
Abstract:
Background: The incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus has seen a rising trend. There is evidence that by estimation of serum ferritin levels in patients with gestational diabetes mellitus it is possible to predict the obstetric outcome.
Methods: The incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus has seen a rising trend. There is evidence that by estimation of serum ferritin and GCT levels in patients with gestational diabetes mellitus it is possible to predict the obstetric outcome.
Results: 248 cases into two groups 124 GDM and 124 Healthy non complicated pregnancies that served as controls. The mean age was 24.12years and 25.31 years (GDM and non - GDM). The mean serum ferritin levels in GDM was 68. 14 ng/ml ± 15. 63ng/ml which was significantly high compared to that of non GDM which was 30. 18 ng/ml ± 06. 02 ng/ml.
Conclusion: In this study, we concluded that GDM is likely to be associated with high serum ferritin levels compared to non GDM mothers and by evaluation of serum ferritin levels it is possible to predict the outcome of the mother and the newborn.
