This is to correct the published article, Journal of Clinical Medicine Research, 2018;10(3):182-188. DOI:10.14740/jocmr3281w.

Due to the lack of some values in the previous version, Tables 1 and 2 and Figures 3 and 4 are slightly changed. The corrected tables and figures were described below.

Figure 3. Change in HbA1c (%). Mini-LCD: mini low-carbohydrate diet; ECD: energy-controlled diet; HbA1c: glycosylated hemoglobin.

Figure 4.

Figure 4. Change in body weight (kg). Mini-LCD: mini low-carbohydrate diet; ECD: energy-controlled diet.

In page 185, right paragraph, “However, there was a difference in LDL-cholesterol levels between the two groups (P = 0.018).” should be deleted, and Results for Figure 3 and Figure 4 should read “No difference was seen in the HbA1c of patients in either group at week 12, as compared with the baseline (mini-LCD: P = 0.40; ECD: P = 0.10) (Fig. 3). Patients in the mini-LCD group showed a significant difference in body weight at week 12, as compared with the baseline (P = 0.03); however, no significant difference was seen in patients in the ECD group (P = 0.50) (Fig. 4)”.

In page 187, left paragraph, the results about protein intake should read “There was a tendency to show the difference in protein intake between the two groups from the baseline and week 12 (mini-LCD: 3.7 ± 4.6; ECD: -1.9 ± 3.5; P = 0.34)”.

In page 187, right paragraph, the Discussion about propensity score matching should read “A difference in HbA1c between the two groups or from week 0 to 12 after propensity score matching showed no significant changes.”, and the following description should be deleted: “However, an increase in protein intake was observed in the mini-LCD group from the baseline to week 12 (P = 0.045)” should be deleted.

In page 188, left paragraph, the Discussion about body weight changes should read “Previous reports have demonstrated that low carbohydrate diets are associated with weight loss in obese patients [4, 13, 14]. The present study also demonstrated that the mini-LCD diet tended to decrease the body weight.”

The authors declare that these minor changes do not affect the conclusion of this study solely.
