Aims: Different approaches for screening and diagnosis of gestational diabetes mellitus(GDM) have great impact on all process of management of gestational diabetes and its future complications. The aims of this study were to evaluate rate, risk factors and outcomes of GDM based on International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups diagnostic criteria. Materials: In a prospective study pregnant women attended 5 clinics in Ahvaz, screened for gestational diabetes mellitus using IADPSG criteria and followed up delivery from August 2014 to February 2015. At the first prenatal visit women underwent the fasting blood sugar test. A 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was performed for 750 mothers between 24 and 32 weeks of gestation. Logistic regression test for calculating the odds ratios and 95 confidence intervals was used. Results: The mean age of participants was 28.43 +/- 5.52 years. The overall rate of GDM in our study was 29.9 (224/750). Incidence of gestational diabetes was associated with age group >= 35 years OR = 1.92 (95% CI, 1.19-3.09), family history of diabetes OR = 2.47(95% CI, 1.33-4.59), previous GDM OR = 3.12 (1.35-7.19), BMI >= 25 OR = 1, 71(1.10-2.67) Using logistic regression. The most common maternal complication in studied women was cesarean section followed by hypertension and preeclampsia. Conclusion: About one third of studied women diagnosed as GDM according to the IADPSG criteria. Risk factors of GDM were maternal age, family history of diabetes, Previous GDM, overweight and obesity before pregnancy, the same reported factors with 2 steps approach. Higher rate of GDM using this criterion may increase concern about healthcare costs and workloads. (C) 2016 Diabetes India. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
