Figure 38 is a metagraph comparing rates of hypoglycemia among women with a GDM diagnosis by CC criteria and those without GDM. Three studies contributed data from 7,966 patients, results were not pooled due to substantial heterogeneity (I²=94%). Results for the individual studies were: Chico 2005 RR 1.56 (95%CI, 1.02, 2.37), Langer 2005 RR 9.52 (95%CI, 6.02, 15.08), and Pennison 2001 RR 3.21 (95%CI, 1.18, 8.76).
