Incorrect Unit of Measure

JAMA. 2017;317(18):1912. doi:10.1001/jama.2017.4657

In the Original Investigation entitled “Continuous Glucose Monitoring vs Conventional Therapy for Glycemic Control in Adults With Type 1 Diabetes Treated With Multiple Daily Insulin Injections: The GOLD Randomized Clinical Trial” published in the January 24/31, 2017, issue of JAMA,1 the article reported an incorrect unit of measure. In the Hypoglycemia subsection of Results, the second and third sentences should read “There were 5 events of severe hypoglycemia during conventional treatment (event rate, 0.19 per 1000 patient-days) and 1 event occurred during CGM therapy (event rate, 0.04 per 1000 patient-days). There were 7 severe hypoglycemia events during the washout period when patients were undergoing conventional therapy (event rate, 0.41 per 1000 patient-days).” This article was corrected online.
