Error in Figure in: Effects of Low-Carbohydrate vs Low-Fat Diets on Weight Loss and Cardiovascular Risk Factors: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials

Arch Intern Med. 2006;166(8):932. doi:10.1001/archinte.166.8.932

Error in Figure. In the Original Investigation by Nordmann et al titled “Effects of Low-Carbohydrate vs Low-Fat Diets on Weight Loss and Cardiovascular Risk Factors: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials,” published in the February 13 issue of the ARCHIVES (2006;166:285-293), an error occurred in Figure 6 on page 292. The graph labels “Favors Low Fat” and “Favors Low Carb” should have been reversed in both parts A and B of that figure. The corrected Figure 6 is reproduced here with its legend.

Figure 6.
Weighted mean differences in high-density lipoprotein level after 6 (A) and 12 (B) months of follow-up. Carb indicates carbohydrates; CI, confidence interval; UI, uncertainty interval. To convert cholesterol levels to millimoles per liter, multiply by 0.0259.
