Author(s): Dr. Lavee Mehrotra and Dr. Seema Mishra
Abstract: Background: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is diabetes or glucose intolerance that is primarily detected during pregnancy. The present study was conducted to assess the role of serum uric acid as a predictor of gestational diabetes mellitus. Materials & Methods: 78 antenatal women in first trimester were enrolled. Venous blood sample was taken from all patients and serum uric acid was measured by colorimetric assay with detection limit of 0.2-20 mg/dl and patients were followed up at 24-28 weeks to do oral glucose tolerance test. Results: Age group 20-25 years had 14, 26-30 years had 26, 31-35 years had 18 and 36-40 years had 10 patients. Parity was multipara in 42 and primi in 36. Serum uric acid was elevated (>4.2) in 28 and normal (<4.2) in 50. GTT result was normal in 68 and positive in 10 patients. Among 28 elevated uric acid patients, 4 had positive GTT results and among 50 normal serum uric acid patients, 6 had positive GTT result. Conclusion: There was increase in the risk of development of GDM with increased levels of serum uric acid in the first trimester.
