Preeclampsia was associated with a higher risk of diabetes adjusting for age, primigravidity, and gestational diabetes (hazard ratio, HR 1.82, 95%CI 1.26, 2.62) and in women without gestational diabetes (n = 30,109; HR 1.86, 95%CI 1.22, 2.84).
Great. Even if you didn't get GD, you're at almost double the risk of developing diabetes. In fact, there's hardly any difference between the two groups.
