Following publication of the original article [1], the authors identified an error in Table 3. The word “Dyslipidemia” should be removed from Hypertension column. The correct Table 3 is given below. (Table presented.) Odd ratios of the associations between the cardiometabolic risk factors adjusted for age and sex Obesity Dysglycemia Dyslipidemia Hypertension Central obesity 4.70 (4.04–5.46) 1.57 (1.29–1.9) 2.18 (1.85–2.56) 1.85 (1.58–2.17) Hypertension 3.03 (2.61–3.52) 2.32 (1.92–2.79) 1.81 (1.54–2.12) Dyslipidemia 2.71 (2.32–3.15) 1.85 (1.51–2.26) Dysglycemia 2.98 (2.49–3.55) Data is presented as odds ratios (95% CI). Multivariate models adjusted for age and gender only. For each risk factor, the reference groups were those without that risk factor The original article [1] has been revised.
