Abstract: This cross-sectional study assessed the levels and impact of diabetes on quality of life (QoL) among people with type 2 diabetes, and compared QoL between male and female participants. 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.
