The rationale for the present project is to enlarge the knowledge about health related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and diabetes mellitus (DM). DM and MetS suppose a global health burden because of their high prevalence but also because of their association with chronic complications. In addition to the evaluation of morbi - mortality, assessing quality of life is an important outcome, especially in chronic illnesses. DM has been associated with impairments in physical, mental health and social functioning. The data about HRQoL in MetS are scarce. For evaluating HRQoL on DM and MetS three independent studies were performed. The first and the second one were based on the population of the Di@bet.es study that included a wide sample, representative of the Spanish population. It was conducted in Spain between 2009 and 2010, designed to estimate DM prevalence in the country. Considering we had a wide representative sample, firstly we assessed MetS prevalence and then evaluated HRQoL in the group with MetS or DM, comparing them to “healthy” people without them. The third study assesses HRQoL in patients with DM who attend to a monographic Unit for Diabetes attention. It is important to know the most affected areas of HRQoL and the socio demographic factors that can influence on it, in order to create initiatives to implement patients’ care...
