After publication of the original article [1], we were notified that units of testosterone in main text and abstract and units of DHEA-S in Fig. 1 and Table 4 are incorrect.

  1. 1.

    In the Abstract:

    ‘testosterone (0.230 ng/L vs. 0.250 ng/L, p = 0.005)’ should be replaced with ‘testosterone (0.230 ng/mL vs. 0.250 ng/mL, p = 0.005)’

  2. 2.

    In the section ‘Serum levels of sex hormones’:

    ‘testosterone (0.23 ng/L vs. 0.25 ng/L, p = 0.005)’ should be replaced with ‘testosterone (0.23 ng/mL vs. 0.25 ng/mL, p = 0.005)’

  3. 3.

    The unit of serum DHEA-S, in Fig. 1 (3rd column):

    μg/mL’ should be replaced with ‘μg/dL’

  4. 4.

    unit of DHEA-S in Table 4 (4th row):

    μg/mL’ should be replaced with ‘μg/dL’
