We acknowledge that in the published work [1], text in multiple sections of the article overlaps with our previous publication, Tang et al. 2014 BMJ Open [2]. We would like to further clarify the relationship between these manuscripts. In 2013, we had collected and analyzed the data from general population to estimate the diagnostic performance of short-term heart rate variability for cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy by using Bayesian approaches, these data were published in BMJ Open article [2]. In 2014, we collected and analyzed the data from diabetic patients to estimate the performance of diabetic cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy by using similar Bayesian approaches, these data were included in the manuscript published in Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrome [1]. We would like to clarify that we consider that the aims, dataset, outcomes, and highlights of the two papers are different and both results are very important for clinicians. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
