In our study we had calculated the prevalence of low HDL cholesterol based on the criteria <40 mg/dl for males and <40 mg/dl for females. However, in the methodology and in [Table 3] foot note it was stated that the criteria were <40 mg/dl for males and <50 mg/dl for females.

We re-analyzed the data for low HDL cholesterol values using the criteria <40 mg/dl for males and <50 mg/dl for females. The results are presented below

We checked the values for diabetes and were found to be same as published: 14.3 per cent among men and 17.8 per cent among women in the total population and 20.6 per cent in rural areas significantly different ( p <0.05) than the 14.8 per cent in urban areas.
