Multigravida and multiparous women are more likely to develop GDM compared to primigravida and nulliparous women; however, after adjusting for age, prepregnancy BMI, and other confounders, the excess risk disappears.[sup][21] We did not find any association between gravidity and parity and higher rate of GDM.
Demographic variables were; age, parity in terms of primi and multigravida, antenatal care received or not and research variable was maternal outcome in terms of discharged alive or expired.
