In the print version of the article listed above, in the RESULTS section, the sentence “However, prediabetic and diabetic participants had higher BMI; mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and MCH concentration (MCHC); and higher erythrocyte distribution width (RDW) compared with those who were normoglycemic (P < 0.05 for all)” should read as follows: “However, prediabetic and diabetic participants had higher BMI, lower mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), and higher erythrocyte distribution width (RDW) compared with those who were normoglycemic (P < 0.05 for all).” In addition, several errors occurred in Table 3. The results and conclusions of the article remain unchanged. The corrected Table 3 appears below. The online version reflects these changes.
