The screening test for diabetes mellitus during pregnancy is done for all the pregnant women by Glucose Challenge Test (GCT) and if raised oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) is done. In this study, single elevated 100gm OGTT value associated with adverse effects on the neonate outcome like ,large for gestational & hyperbilirubinemia . we have studied 500 pregnant women with 50gm GCT and if the glucose level is high (140mg/dl) are considered as positive and OGTT were done with 100gm glucose. The result of our cohort study suggest that having a positive GCT is an independent risk factor for adverse neonatal outcome like large for gestational age 2.2% in normal GTT group in compared to 10.8% in impaired GTT group, and hyperbilirubinemia were significantly high in those patients .
