- 13 studies included
The paper is a systematic review / meta analysis of all relevant trials.
This means that the data from all similar trials has been grouped to form an overall outcome.
- After the first pregnancy, recurrence rates varied between 30 and 84%.
- Lower rates were found in non-Hispanic white populations (30 –37%), and higher rates were found in minority populations (52– 69%).
- No other risk factors were consistently associated with recurrence of GDM across studies.
- Yes (without confidence)
