Abstract

Background: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a risk for the health of both the pregnant women and her infant. Its unfavorable effects start in utero and continue after birth. It is known that GDM increases oxidative stress and decreases antioxidant enzyme activities. In this study we aimed to investigate cord blood mean platelet volume (MPV) and ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) levels of infants of diabetic mothers (IDM).
