Wallen EF, Müllersdorf M, Christensson K, Malm G, Ekblom Ö, Marcus C.

On page 856, column 1, the last paragraph, with the heading ‘Level of cardio-metabolic risk factors’, should read:

Prevalence of one or more cardio-metabolic risk factors above the age-specific cut-off levels for adolescents (27–30) was 65% among participants with ID, compared to 24% in the group non-ID (Table S7). The prevalence of more risk factors was 3% in the group non-ID compared to 18% in the group with ID. The most common risk factor was increased WC. HOMA levels above cut-off suggested by Keskin et al. (31) for adolescents occurred in 15% in the group with ID compared to 2% in the group with non-ID.
