Background: There is still no consensus on screening, threshold levels and treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus. Furthermore, the importance of a positive 50-g glucose screening test in patients who had a negative 100-g oral glucose tolerance test remains controversial. We investigated the impact of the 50-g glucose screening test results on neonatal outcome in pregnant women with uncomplicated pregnancies, who had no risk factors according to ACOG criteria.
