A corrigendum on

Effect of Underlying Renal Disease on Nutritional and Metabolic Profile of Older Adults with Reduced Renal Function
by Lai S, Amabile MI, Altieri S, Mastroluca D, Lai C, Aceto P, et al. (2017). Front. Nutr. 4, 4. doi:10.3389/fnut.2017.00004

In the original article, there was an error, in particular, in the results section of the Abstract:

Results: A total of 76 patients were enrolled. Group A (n = 39, M: 24, F: 15) showed greater BWL with a significant reduction of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, transferrin, cholinesterase, albumin, and LVMI with respect to Group B (p < 0.01). Conversely, Group B (n = 37, M: 23, F: 14) showed significantly increased intact parathyroid hormone, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein, triglycerides, and C-reactive protein when compared to Group A (p < 0.05).

A correction has been made in the results section of the Abstract.

Results: A total of 76 patients were enrolled. Group A (n = 39, M: 24, F: 15) showed greater BWL with a significant reduction of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, transferrin, cholinesterase, albumin, and greater LVMI with respect to Group B (n = 37, M: 23, F: 14) (p < 0.01). In addition, Group A showed significantly increased intact parathyroid hormone, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein, triglycerides, and C-reactive protein when compared to Group B (p < 0.05).

The authors declare that this error, present only in the abstract, does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.
