We have developed a diabetes quality-of-life (DQOL) measure oriented toward the patient with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). The DQOL was assessed for its reliability and validity in a group of patients with IDDM (n = 192). We found that the DQOL and its four scales had high degrees of internal consistency (Cronbach's r = .66−.92) and excellent test-retest reliability (r = .78−.92). Using conceptually relevant measures of psychiatric symptoms, perceived well-being and adjustment to… Expand
The Evaluation of Two Measures of Quality of Life in Patients With Type I and Type II Diabetes
TLDR
This study provides evidence for the reliability and validity of two measures of quality of life and suggests that the DQOL seems more sensitive to lifestyle issues and contains special questions and worry scales oriented toward younger patients, whereas the SF-36 provides more information about functional health status. Expand
Validation of a Diabetes-Specific Quality-of-Life Scale for Patients With Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
The DSQOLS is a reliable and valid measure of diabetes-specific quality of life and is able to distinguish between patients with different treatment and dietary regimens and to detect social inequities. Expand
Development and Validation of the Diabetes Quality of Life Brief Clinical Inventory
TLDR
The 15-item DQOL Brief Clinical Inventory provides a total health–related quality of life score that predicts self-reported diabetes care behaviors and satisfaction with diabetes control as effectively as the full version of the instrument. Expand
Influence of Intensive Diabetes Treatment on Quality-of-Life Outcomes in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial

TLDR
Under careful treatment conditions, such as those followed in the DCCT, patients undergoing intensive diabetes treatment do not face deterioration in the quality of their lives, even while the rigor of their diabetes care is increased. Expand
Assessing the perceived impact of diabetes on quality of life: Psychometric validation of the DAWN2 Impact of Diabetes Profile in the second Diabetes MILES - Australia (MILES-2) survey.
TLDR
The DIDP meets the need for a brief, contemporary, valid and reliable measure of the perceived impact of diabetes on quality of life, suitable for adults with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Expand
Validation Study and Outcomes of the Diabetes Quality of Life in Youth Instrument in Haitian Youth With Type 1 Diabetes Residing in Haiti.
TLDR
HRQL is low and was worse in older, female and low-SES youth, but was not associated with glycemic control, and the DQOLY-SF and DQolY Satisfaction subscale are valid measures of HRQL in Haitian youth with diabetes. Expand
Assessing Quality of Life for New Diabetes Treatments and Technologies: A Simple Patient-Centered Score
TLDR
A patient-centered quality of life (PCQoL) measure that should be applicable to routine clinical practice or trial of therapies is devised and validated and suitable for routine use in diabetes or trials of new treatments. Expand
The Long-Term Effects of Type 1 Diabetes Treatment and Complications on Health-Related Quality of Life
TLDR
Among DCCT/EDIC participants, worsening metabolic control, serious diabetes complications and their associated symptoms, and development of psychiatric conditions led to decreased HRQOL. Expand
Feasibility, reliability and validity of the Iranian version of the Diabetes Quality of Life Brief Clinical Inventory (IDQOL-BCI).
TLDR
The findings demonstrate the initial feasibility, reliability and validity of the Iranian version of the IDQOL-BCI as a measure of diabetic-specific QOL measure in Iranian patients. Expand
Cultural Adaptation and Psychometric Properties of the Diabetes Quality of Life Scale in Afaan Oromoo among People Living with Type 2 Diabetes in Ethiopia
TLDR
The 34-item DQOL-AO provided preliminary evidence as a reliable and valid tool to measure diabetic-related QOL before it can be widely used among adults living with T2D who speak Afaan Oromoo. Expand
