In the version of “Diagnosis and Management of the Metabolic Syndrome: An American Heart Association/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Scientific Statement: Executive Summary” that published online ahead of print on September 12, 2005 (DOI: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.105.169405), the following changes have been made to Table 1:
The value for categorical cut points in elevated waist circumference for men should have added “(≥40 inches)” after “≥102 cm.”
The value for categorical cut points in elevated waist circumference for women should have added “(≥35 inches)” after “≥88 cm.”
The conversion of mg/dL to mmol/L for reduced HDL-C is incorrect. The correct value for men should be 1.03 mmol/L and the correct value for women should be 1.3 mmol/L.
In the footnotes, the values for marginally increased waist circumference should read “(eg, 94–101 cm [37–39 inches] in men and 80–87 cm [31–34 inches] in women).”
These changes were incorporated into the printed version of the article (Circulation. 2005;112:e285–e290) and the current online version of the article.
