The study was conducted over a period of one year from January 2021 to January 2022,
among 275 antenatal mother having gestation between 24-28 weeks. Data was analyzed
for DIPSI criteria using plasma blood glucose. We found 6 patients who met diagnostic
criteria for GDM. The Prevalence of GDM was observed in 2.18 % patients. Our study
have shown that prevalence of GDM in NCR area is quite low as compared to other
study .It may be because our study participants is mainly belong to rural area having
low socio-economic status with healthy life style. Our study is confined to small number,
a larger study with screening program for GDM is required in this area
