To assess the effects of calcium and vitamin D on women with gestational diabetes, 60 participants with this condition received either a combined calcium and vitamin D supplement or a placebo for 6 weeks. In the supplementation group, a significant decrease in cesarean section rate, maternal hospitalization, and hospitalization of newborns were found as compared with the test persons only receiving a placebo. More details can be found in the study.
