the participating pregnant women were categorized in NGT as well as GDM and GIGT groups.

higher in the GDM compared to the GIGT and NGT groups (pless than 0.
Pregnancy weight gain and HOMA-IR correlated with OGTT hyperglycemia in the one hour GIGT subgroup: We divided the GIGT patients in subgroups depending whether one blood glucose concentration was higher than 10.

The data indicate that HOMA-IR abnormalities in the first hour of the OGTT can be used to determine GIGT.
21 We also assessed insulin resistance with HOMAIR in this study and found that HOMA-IR values in the GDM group were significantly higher than in GIGT or NGT patients which indicated a significant insulin resistance.
27 In our study we found that the weight gain as well as the HOMA-IR were significantly higher in the 1-hour GIGT hyperglycemia than in the 2-hourand 3-hour subgroups showing that a 1-hour glucose abnormality in GIGT patients was associated with higher insulin resistant severity.
Our finding that 1-hour glucose abnormalities in GIGT patients were associated with more severe insulin resistance supports the latest criteria of IADPSG.
