The significant frequency of thyroid dysfunction in women with pre-gestational DM calls for evaluation of thyroid function in these people during pregnancy. Thyroid dysfunction was present in both pregnant women with GDM and healthy pregnant women, but in 27% of them, TPO Ab titers were positive, indicating the need for additional testing for postpartum thyroiditis and dysfunction. Therefore, it can be concluded from the findings that women with gestational diabetes mellitus were more likely than healthy pregnant women to have thyroid dysfunction, which is manifested as hypothyroidism with high anti-TPO levels.
