Abstract

Owing to an oversight by the authors, the 24-h urine calcium results reported as milligrams urinary calcium per 24 h in this article were actually milligrams urinary calcium per deciliter: As a result, the statement in the final sentence in the “Results” section of the abstract that “No osteoporotic men had hypercalciuria” was incorrect. The last two sentences of this paragraph should have read “Hypercortisolism, hyperthyroidism, and hypercalciuria were uncommon and not significantly more frequent in men with osteoporosis.” Furthermore, the statement in the “Results” section of the main text that “The only man with urine calcium >300 mg/24 h did not have osteoporosis” was incorrect. The paragraph containing this sentence should have read “In the smaller sample of men with available 24-h urine measures, neither hypercortisolism defined as UFC >100 mcg/24 h nor hypercalciuria defined as urine calcium >300 mg/24 h was significantly more frequent in men with than in those without osteoporosis (Table 2).” Finally, the results reported for “Hypercalciuria, >300mg calcium/ 24 h” under the heading “Primary definitions of laboratory abnormalities” in Table 2 were incorrect; the corrected Table 2 is shown here in full. The authors apologize for any inconvenience caused.(Table presented.)
