Diabetes is one of the 3rd leading Non Communicable as well as chronic disease in the world; it has major impact on quality of life. To manage and control diabetes, assessment of quality of life (QOL) acts as an important tool.
Aims and Objectives: The study aims
1. to assess the quality of life and glycemic level among diabetic patients.
2. to assess the risk factors of diabetic patients.
3. to associate the QOL and glycemic level with selected demographic variables.
Materials and Methods : A Cross sectional study was conducted for a period of 5 months among 80 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients (40 males and 40 females) visiting Global Hospital and Research Center and its units in Sirohi district, Rajasthan. Demographic data was collected using structured proforma, glycemic level (Fasting, Post Prandial blood glucose and HbA1C) through venous blood sample and QOL using standard WHO QOL BREF questionnaires. Statistical analysis like Mean, standard deviation, correlation, chi tests and ANOVA was analysed using SPSS 16.
Results: The mean fasting blood sugar, post prandial blood sugar and HbA1C are higher among females than male diabetic patients. The quality of life among females is less compared to male patients.
