Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) have an increased future risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). The purpose of the study was to find out if GDM is a risk factor for CAD or not. Case control was the method of study where source of case was hospitalised patients and the source of control was general population. Simple random technique was used as a method of sampling in which certain CAD patients 20 - 35 years age group were taken under the study. The sample size was 35 and Odd Ratio was used for the elimination of risk of disease associated with exposure. GDM showed a risk of having CAD 2.25 times higher than that of non GDM. Thus GDM can be considered as a major risk factor for CAD.
