Erratum to: Metabolic syndrome and its predictors in an urban population in Kenya: a cross sectional study

Erratum

The original article [1] was updated to correct a mistake in the third sentence of the conclusions section:

‘There is also a need to adopt gender specific MetS TG cut-offs to avoid over diagnosing hypertriglyceridaemia in black African women who have a lower TG level compared to the 1.7 mmol/L cut-off.’

Has been changed to:

‘There is also a need to adopt gender specific MetS TG cut-offs to avoid under diagnosing hypertriglyceridaemia in black African women who have a lower TG level compared to the 1.7 mmol/L cut-off.’
