ROLE OF GLYCATED ALBUMIN DURING PREGNANCY 21-36 WEEKS WITH NORMAL GLYCEMIC STATUS

Author : Suzanna Immanuel, Thoeng Ronald, Kanadi Sumapradja, Arini Setiawati

Abstract

Introduction: Hyperglycemia during pregnancy is found in 25% of pregnancy in Southeast Asia, and when uncontrolled may cause serious complications. Glycated albumin, a new glycemic status indicator which is not affected by gestational age, may be an alternative for pregnancy. Purpose: To examine the usefulness of glycated albumin during pregnancy with normal glycemic status. Method: 60 pregnant women between 21-36 weeks of pregnancy. Tests were done for glycated albumin, blood glucose, and albumin. These parameters were compared among four groups of age of pregnancy (I:21-24 weeks, II:25-28 weeks, III:29-32 weeks, and IV:33-36 weeks) using ANOVA or Kruskal-Wallis test with post-hoc tests. Results: Glycated albumin was not statistically different among the groups. Albumin level of group IV(3.59±0.22g/dL) was lower than group I(3.82±0.19g/dL). Conclusion: Glycated albumin level was not affected by pregnancy age. Therefore glycated albumin may be used as glycemic status indicator during pregnancy age of 21-36 weeks. Key words: Hba1c, Glycated Albumin, Glycemic Status, Pregnancy.
