Methods: The current case-control study was conducted at Ain Shams University Maternity Hospital. The study included two groups of women: group A, including pregnant women with a history of unexplained recurrent miscarriage; and group B, including control pregnant women with no prior miscarriage. Women included in either group were at their first trimester of pregnancy (6-13 weeks of gestation). For all included women, 3-hour oral glucose test was performed. Serum insulin levels were measured at the same times. Markers of insulin resistance, including HOMA-IR, HOMA-B, AUCG and AUCI were calculated.
Results: There were no significant differences between women of both groups regarding HOMA-IR and HOMA-B. The mean values of AUCG and AUCI were, however, significantly higher in women of group A when compared to group B..
