Diabetes has significant effects on quality of life; however, the interrelationships are complex amongthe physiologic and psychosocial effects of diabetes, the effects of treatment regimens, and the social and cultural contexts in which we live. These important relationships and effects are being defined, but much additional work is needed to reliably and accurately measure health-related quality of life among subpopulations, and to measure and optimize the effects of increasingly complex and intensive treatments.
