Quality of life as a function of diabetes in Australian women: 1996-2010
Previous studies on diabetes and QoL have focused either on prognostic value of QoL in diabetes10, or differences in QoL measure in patients with diabetes from those without diabetes11. This study will examine the changes in QoL measure with the development of diabetes from pre-diagnosis to post-diagnosis of diabetes and the time course of this relationship, from 1996 to 2011 using the 1946-51 and 1921-26 cohorts. In addition, it will model demographic characteristics, risk factors as well as other potential confounders and effect modifiers to QoL impairment on the development of diabetes.
