A convenience sample of 200 people was recruited from diabetes clinics in Palestine. The Audit of Diabetes-Dependent Quality of Life (ADDQoL) questionnaire was used to assess overall and domain-specific QoL. The results showed, despite having a lower HbA1c, women had lower (more negative) ADDQoL scores than men. There were significant differences between men and women across QoL domains when controlling for diabetes duration, BMI and HbA1c.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.11889/6805||ISSN:||13681109|
