We examined the association of second-trimester maternal plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) during pregnancy with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and also Studied various socio-demographic factors associated with Vitamin D deficiency among cases and controls.Methodology adopted was a case control study where 150 patients were included, 75 each in study group and control group.Observational studies provide conflicting evidence as to whether low serum 25-hydroxyvitmain D (25 (OH) D) levels are associated with GDM. Our study showed an inverse relationship between serum vitamin-D levels and Gestational diabetes mellitus and how diverse socioeconomic factors influenced the serum vitamin-D levels among antenatal women.
