In the article titled "Price of Adaptation–Allostatic Load and Its Health Consequences" by Seeman et al published in the October 27, 1997, issue of the ARCHIVES (1997;157:2259-2268), the lowest cutoff points listed on page 2261 were incorrect. The correct cutoff points are as follows:
Lowest HDL cholesterol level (≤1.45 mmol/L [≤37 mg/dL]) DHEA-S level (≤2.5 µmol/L [≤350 ng/mL])
We regret any inconvenience this may have caused our readers.
