Figure 18 is a metagraph comparing maternal hypertension rates between women with CC GDM and women with a false-positive diagnosis of GDM. Two studies contributed data from 5,678 patients. The pooled result showed a significant difference in favor of the false positive group (RR 1.53, 95% CI 1.11, 2.11; I²=0%).
