Abstract: We evaluated the quality of life (QOL) in 268 patients with diabetes mellitus (NIDDM, 250 cases; IDDM, 10 cases; and other type of diabetes, 8 cases) to determine which aspects were adversely affected by the disease. Information concerning life satisfaction, social activities, ability to work, sexual problems and physical symptoms was obtained from a 30-item questionnaire. Clinical characteristics including duration of diabetes, glycemic control, current treatment, obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, macro- and microvascular complications were obtained from medical records. Diminished QOL was most pronounced in patients who had had a long duration of disease, required insulin therapy, and whose health was disturbed by cerebrovascular disease, end-stage renal disease, mono- and autonomic neuropathy. A significant difference in the subdimensional QOL score was noted in life satisfaction, social activities, ability to work, sexual problems and physical symptoms under these circumstances.
