Objective: To determine the prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus in polycystic ovary syndrome.
Research design and methods: We conducted a retrospective observational study in a tertiary care medical institution in Monterrey, Mexico. Ninety-one patients were enrolled. We excluded patients with twin pregnancies or with an incomplete medical record. Data were obtained in the postpartum wards by review of medical records. A diagnosis of gestational diabetes mellitus was made according to current criteria of the American Diabetes Association.
Results: We included 91 patients with a mean age of 27 ± 6 years. Of these patients, 77% had a family history of type 2 diabetes mellitus, and 8% received treatment to become pregnant. The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus in our study cohort was 65%.
Conclusion: Gestational diabetes mellitus has a high prevalence in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome. A consensus between early detection and classification criteria to standardize the diagnosis should be sought.
