ROC curve analysis revealed the optimal cutoff point of serum cobalamin for predicting gestational diabetes to be 113 pg/mL at which sensitivity and specificity were was 56.9% (95%CI 44.1-68.8%) and 80.5 % (95%CI 65.6-89.9%) at P<0.0001. It was concluded that low serum cobalamin levels may be a risk factor and may predict the development of GDM.

Moreover, probability values were calculated using the least significant different testing. The results showed that NRR-1 was 83.75% and 85%, while NRR-2 was 62.5% and 68.75% on T1 and T2, respectively. Furthermore, the failure of AI was mainly caused by repeat breeders, which were 28.75% on T1 and ...
