In the print version of the article listed above, the term “CHF” is defined as “coronary heart failure.” The term should be defined as “congestive heart failure” instead. In addition, in the section entitled “Prevention/Delay of Type 2 Diabetes,” two additional bullets with accompanying text should appear as follows:

  • In addition to lifestyle counseling, metformin may be considered in those who are at very high risk for developing diabetes (combined IFG and IGT plus other risk factors such as A1C >6%, hypertension, low HDL cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, or family history of diabetes in a first-degree relative) and who are obese and under 60 years of age. (E).
  • Monitoring for the development of diabetes in those with pre-diabetes should be performed every year. (E).

The online version reflects these changes.
