Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of adolescents aged 10 to 18 years, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), users of the services of two units of secondary care in municipal health in southern Brazil. The study included 20 adolescents of both sexes, aged 10-18 years, with the data collected through the questionnaire KIDSCREEN-52 Brazilian version. The results indicated teenagers who showed great perception of HRQOL and that there have been few significant differences concerning gender, socioeconomic status, age, and time of diagnosis. The results suggest that interference of T1DM in HRQOL should be analyzed in terms of adolescent development.
