Figure 58 is a metagraph comparing infant hypoglycemia between women treated for GDM with those who were not. Four RCTs contributed data from 2,367 patients. Pooled results showed no significant difference between groups (RR 1.18, 95% CI, 0.92, 1.52; I²=0%). Two cohort studies contributed data from 2,054 patients. Pooled results showed no significant difference between groups (RR 0.55, 95% CI, 0.10, 2.97; I²=49%).
