With regard to the paper by Bhowmik et al. (Diabetes Metab J 2013;37:46-53), the statement that the protocol was approved by the Norwegian Ethical Committee is incorrect. The authors deeply apologize for the imprecise statement. All the subjects were from Bangladesh and ethical clearance was approved only by the Ethical Committee from Bangladesh. All necessary information was collected from the participants following participant consent. The research was conducted following Declaration of Helsinki.
