Risk of certain socio-clinical factors has been estimated by the determination of the value of Odd Ratio (OR). Our study that disease in the first pregnancy, family history, chronic disease and taking contraceptive after 30 year shown to be significant risk factors for gestational diabetes in the study population with the highest OR value (9.428 - 58.105; P <0.05), while sport and food additifs (OR=0.330; P=0.004, OR=0.404; P=0.010) respectively are important protective factors against this disease.
