Abstract

Background and objective: Gestational diabetes is associated with intrauterine fetal death. But causes are unclear. This study aimed to assess the clinical characteristics of gestational diabetes in relation to intrauterine fetal death. Materials and Methods: Eighty-eight consecutive gestational diabetics enrolled into the study were divided into two groups: Group A (n =77): gestational diabetics with normal fetus; Group B (n=11): gestational diabetics with intrauterine fetal death. The parameters measured in them were age, body mass index, blood pressure, urine total protein, serum urea and serum creatinine. Results: Among the measured parameters, mean systolic and diastolic blood pressure were significantly higher in group B compared to group A (p< 0.016, p < 0.02 respectively). Conclusions: Raised blood pressure is associated with intrauterine fetal death in gestational diabetic mothers.
