Corrections - To: "Lactose Intolerance" in May 1, 2002 issue. p 1845 - To: "Controlling Hypertension

Date: March 15, 2003

The article "Lactose Intolerance" (May 1, 2002, page 1845) contained an error regarding intestinal transit time. On page 1846, the first complete sentence should read: "Secondary or acquired hypolactasia can follow any gastrointestinal illness that damages the brush border or significantly decreases transit time in the jejunum mucosa."

The article "Controlling Hypertension in Patients with Diabetes" (October 1, 2002, page 1209) contained an error in the description of diltiazem. On page 1211, the first sentence under the subheading "Calcium Channel Blockers" should have described diltiazem as a benzothiazepine calcium channel blocker rather than as a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker.
