Background: Few studies have investigated maternal leptin concentrations in women with pregnancies complicated by gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and these published results are conflicting. We examined the association between plasma leptin concentration and GDM risk.
Methods: As a cross-sectional study 741 pregnant women that referred to five university hospital clinics were recruited. The universal screening was performed with a GCT-50g and those with plasma glucose level ≥130mg/dl, were diagnosed as GDM if they had an impaired GTT-100g based on Carpenter and Coustan criteria. The level of insulin was measured during OGTT-100g. Also maternal plasma leptin concentrations were measured.
Results: GDM patients had higher age, parity, BMI, and serum leptin concentration as compare with normal pregnancies. In logistic regression model serum leptin levels were independent factor for GDM.
Serum leptin concentrations can predict GDM.
