30 years, 46.3% multipara, 4.9% with BMI >30, 14.4% with adverse event in previous pregnancy, 7.3% with MAP >90 mmHg and 2.5% subjects with family history of DM had abnormal O’Sullivan test results and high risk factors were present in only 4.8% subjects with normal O’Sullivan results as compared to 30.5% subjects with abnormal O’Sullivan results. Conclusion: More abnormal O’Sullivan results were found in pregnant women age >30 years, BMI >30, positive history of adverse event in previous pregnancy, MAP > 90 mmHg, and Presence of family history of DM. Universal screening of all pregnant women is justified regardless of high risk factors. Keywords: GDM, O’Sullivan test, MAP, BMI. "/>

Abstract

Introduction: Aim of study is to test O’Sullivan test for screening of GDM as per “National guidelines for diagnosis and management of GDM" and to study the association between high risk factors and occurance of abnormal O’Sullivan results.
Materials and Methods: 75 gm of oral glucose ingestion by pregnant women at the time of registration irrespective of fasting status (O’Sullivan test) and measuring blood sugar level after 2 hours.
Results: Total 500 subjects were divided into various groups with respect to their baseline variables e.g. Age group, parity, BMI, history of adverse event in previous pregnancy, mean arterial pressure, family history of DM., 57.15% subjects with age >30 years, 46.3% multipara, 4.9% with BMI >30, 14.4% with adverse event in previous pregnancy, 7.3% with MAP >90 mmHg and 2.5% subjects with family history of DM had abnormal O’Sullivan test results and high risk factors were present in only 4.8% subjects with normal O’Sullivan results as compared to 30.5% subjects with abnormal O’Sullivan results.
Conclusion: More abnormal O’Sullivan results were found in pregnant women age >30 years, BMI >30, positive history of adverse event in previous pregnancy, MAP > 90 mmHg, and Presence of family history of DM. Universal screening of all pregnant women is justified regardless of high risk factors.

Keywords: GDM, O’Sullivan test, MAP, BMI.
