The aim of the study was to determine the association between 25 hydroxy vitamin D levels and gestational diabetes mellitus in Turkish Cypriot pregnant women. Study design: We conducted a prospective case-control study.
We analysed serum 25OHD concentrations in 230 pregnant women between 2013–2014 in the winter period (November–April). 25 hydroxy vitamin D was measured at the time of glucose tolerance testing at mid-gestation (24-26 weeks of pregnancy), a population at increased risk for gestational diabetes. Patients were than divided in to two groups; pregnant women with gestational diabetes mellitus and pregnant women without gestational diabetes mellitus.
The mean level of 25 hydroxy vitamin D in the study group was 21.9±10.4 ng/ml. Pregnant women were diagnosed as having vitamin D insufficiency. The level of 25 hydroxy vitamin D in women with and without gestational diabetes mellitus were 22.3±10.7 ng/dL and 20.3±9.3 ng/dL respectively (p=0.262).
The present study showed 25OHD insufficiency in pregnant women at midgestation which was not associated with gestational diabetes mellitus.
