In the article titled “Factors Associated with Long-Term Control of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus” [1], the less and greater than signs were reversed in the tables and the text. In addition, there were minor errors in Introduction and the format of Table 2. (1)In Introduction, there was a minor spelling error where the text reading “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that has been carried out on patinets with T2DM to identfy factors related to glycemic control in the Jazan region of Saudi Arabia” should be corrected to “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that has been carried out on patients with T2DM to identify factors related to glycemic control in the Jazan region of Saudi Arabia.”(2)The last sentence in the “Data Analysis” subsection in the Methods reading “A value of >0.05 was considered to be statistically significant” should be corrected to “A value of < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant.”(3)In the first paragraph of the “Result” section, the sentence reading “Of the total respondents, 74% had poor glycemic control (HbA1c < 7%)” should be corrected to “Of the total respondents, 74% had poor glycemic control (HbA1c > 7%).”(4)In Table 1, the category “Duration of diabetes (year)” included reversed less and greater than signs. The corrected table is as shown below.(5)In Table 2, the less and greater than signs were reversed in many categories and the format of the category “Medication and treatment modalities” should be updated for clarity. The corrected table is as shown below.(6)In the subsection titled “Logistic Regression Analysis of Factors Associated with HbA1c” in the “Result” section, the text reading “Variables in the regression model included not taking medication (, ), number of medications (, ), extended duration of diabetes (, ), and low confidence in the ability to control diabetes” should be corrected to “Variables in the regression model included not taking medication (, ), number of medications (, ), extended duration of diabetes (, ), and low confidence in the ability to control diabetes.”(7)In Table 4, the less and greater than signs were reversed in many categories. The corrected table is as shown below.(8)In Table 5, the less and greater than signs were reversed in many categories. The corrected table is as shown below.
