Figure 66 is a metagraph comparing cesarean delivery rates between women treated for GDM and those left untreated. Five RCTs contributed data from 2,613 patients, pooled results showed no significant difference between groups (RR 0.90, 95%, 0.79, 1.01; I²=0%). Additionally, six cohort studies contributed data from 3,110 patients. Pooled results demonstrated no significant difference between groups (RR 1.09, 95% CI, 0.90, 1.31; I²=23%).
