In this meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, supplementation with probiotics improved a number of maternal and neonatal outcomes in pregnant women with gestational diabetes.

What was studied?

The effect of supplementation with probiotics on maternal and neonatal outcomes in the context of gestational diabetes (GD).

Specifically, the following outcomes were studied:

  • Maternal primary outcomes: fasting glucose, fasting insulin, HOMA-IR, and insulin sensitivity
  • Maternal secondary outcomes: preeclampsia risk, cesarean delivery risk, premature birth risk, induction of labor risk, and polyhydramnios (excessive amniotic fluid) risk
  • Neonatal secondary outcomes: birth weight, neonatal length, head circumference, admission to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) risk, newborn health (assessed using the Apgar score), hyperbilirubinemia risk, macrosomia risk, large for gestational age (LGA) risk, and neonatal hypoglycemia risk
