Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained an error. The caption for Fig. 1 was included incorrectly. The correct caption can now be found below.

Fig. 1 Comparison of prevalence in cardiometabolic risk in terms of blood biochemical parameters. Prevalence of cardiometabolic risk presents the percentage over the referenced normal range of respective parameters. The cut-off referenced normal range were as follows: AST > 40 (U/L), ALT > 45 (U/L), γ-GTP 80 (U/L), HDL-C < 40 (mg/dL), LDL-C > 140 (mg/dL), TG 150 (mg/dL), UA > 7.0 (mg/dL), HOMA-IR 2.5. *Significant differences compared with Nonheavyweight group, p < 0.05.
