The true Odds for gestational diabetes (GDM) is 0.2 not 1.51. Therefore, in addition to correcting the values for OR in the Table 4, the following sentence in the published article:
Women who did not fast during the second trimester of pregnancy were 1.51 times more likely to develop gestational diabetes.
Should be replaced by:
Women who fasted during the second trimester of pregnancy were 0.8 times less likely to develop gestational diabetes.
Correcting the OR value will not affect other part of the study in any way. It also prevents misinterpretation of our findings, and clearly shows the main result of this study “negative relationship between fasting during pregnancy and risk of GDM”, which is approved by other tests used in this study.
The authors apologize for any inconvenience caused by this error.
