The authors misinterpreted a result within Reference 35 (Fadl et al) and therefore reported it incorrectly in the text of their article. The sentence that includes the reference, the sixth sentence within the second paragraph of the Discussion section, should read:

“In addition, a large Swedish case-control study also utilizing hospital records reported an association between cardiovascular events [OR = 1·51; 95% CI 1·07–2·14] and women previously diagnosed with GDM [35].”
