Erratum

Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained an error.

We would like to correct a formula in “Validation study” section in page 3.

We wrote that “sodium excretion (g/day) = 0.032 x sodium concentration (mmol/l) -2.278 (women) + 9.130”, however, we would like to replace this with “NaCl excretion (g/day) = 0.032 x sodium concentration (mmol/l) -2.278 (women) + 9.130”.
