Self-assessed quality of life and metabolic control in persons with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM).
The aim of the study was to analyse the association between satisfaction with life and glycosylated haemoglobulin (HbA1).
A quality of life questionnaire was administered to 247 persons with IDDM at a Diabetic Clinic in Bergen, Norway.
The material was divided into two groups depending on their level of HbA1; HbA1>0.09 was labelled poorly regulated and a level of HbA1<=0.09 was labelled well regulated.
The groups were compared with regard to different life domains and well-being scales.
The statistical analysis showed that the well-regulated group had significantly higher average scores considering the somatic and activity/behavioural life domain ratings, the latter being only significantly different among people with higher education.
