In the executive summary and in the body of the manuscript, under the section on results, specifically on page 170 (paragraph 5), page 180 (paragraphs 1, 2 and 5) and page 181 (paragraphs 2 and 4), the authors used the term relative risk (RR) whereas they actually carried out their analysis on mean difference (MD). The results were based on the primary and secondary outcomes, which included kidney function measured by eGFR and glycemic control measured by HbA1c.

We acknowledge that this error was initially identified by the authors during manuscript proofing, however it was not corrected by the Editorial and Production Office of the journal. It was subsequently highlighted again in the published version of the manuscript by Dr. Catalin Tufanaru from the Joanna Briggs Institute.
