Abstract

Aims and objectives: To study the association of low maternal plasma sugar with birth weight and neonatal morbidity. Materials and methods: Glucose challenge test was performed in low risk women, the birth weight and neonatal morbidities were compared between women with low GCT (<88 mg/dl) and normal GCT (88-139 mg/dl). Results: Incidence of small for gestational age (<2500 gm) was significantly more in women with low GCT (17.3% vs 7.3%), but difference in NICU admission between the two groups was not significant statistically. Conclusion: Prevalence of small for gestational age neonate was significantly higher in women with low GCT compared to women with normal GCT.
