Erratum

After publication of the original article [1], it came to the authors’ attention that the affiliations were incorrect.

Affiliation 1 (Department of Family Medicine, University of Alberta) incorrectly contained ‘Clinical Research Unit’, and the postcode was incorrect. Affiliation 5 (Alberta Diabetes Institute, University of Alberta) was mistakenly included as ‘Department of Medicine, Obesity Research & Management, University of Alberta’.

In addition, in the list of authors, Jeffrey A. Johnson should be affiliated to institutions 2 and 5, and Arya. A. Sharma should have been affiliation to institutions 3 and 5.

The list of authors and affiliations is correct in this erratum. The ‘Author details’ section of the article should have read as follows:
