Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a low GCT result is predictive of low birthweight and to identify the lower GCT threshold for prediction of fetal growth restriction. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of 12,899 women who underwent a GCT (24 to 28 weeks). Women with a low GCT result (<10(th) percentile (70 mg/dL) were compared to women with normal GCT result (70-140 mg/dL). ROC analysis was used to determine the optimal lower GCT threshold for the prediction of growth restriction. RESULTS: Women in the low-GCT had significant lower rates of cesarean delivery (18.7% vs. 22.5%), shoulder dystocia (0.0% vs. 0.3%), mean birthweight (3096±576 vs. 3163±545) and birthweight percentile (49.1±27.0 vs. 53.1±26.7), and significant higher rates of birthweight< 2500g (11.3% vs. 8.5%), below the 10(th) percentile (8.3% vs. 6.5%) and 3(rd) percentile (2.3% vs. 1.4%). Low GCT was independently associated with an increased risk for birthweight<2500g (OR=1.6, 1.2-2.0), birthweight <10(th) percentile (OR=1.3, 1.1-1.6), birthweight <3(rd) percentile (OR=1.7, 1.2-2.5), and neonatal hypoglycemia (OR=1.4, 1.02-2.0). The optimal GCT threshold for the prediction of birthweight <10(th) percentile was 88.5 mg/dL (sensitivity 48.5%, specificity 58.1%). CONCLUSION: Low GCT result is independently associated with low birthweight and can be used in combination with additional factors for the prediction of fetal growth restriction.
