Incorrect Body Mass Index Range in: Does Body Mass Index Adequately Convey a Patient's Mortality Risk?

JAMA. 2013;309(5):442. doi:10.1001/jama.2013.15

Incorrect Body Mass Index Range: In the Editorial entitled “Does Body Mass Index Adequately Convey a Patient's Mortality Risk?” published in the January 2, 2013, issue of JAMA (2013;309[1]:87-88), in the third to last paragraph of the Editorial, the last sentence of the paragraph should have stated “The average resulting from combining persons in the lowest mortality category (BMI of 22-25) with those who have greater mortality (BMI of 18.5-22) might explain why the NHLBI category of normal weight has an observed mortality similar to class 1 obesity (BMI of 30-<35).” This article has been corrected online.
