Introduction: Quality of life is an important health marker and a major topic in the care of patients with diabetes.

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the quality of life of patients with diabetes in the city of Sabzevar.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 189 patients with diabetes referred to the Diabetes Association of Sabzevar during year 2016. For data collection the Thomas quality of life questionnaire (DQOL-BCI) and a demographic questionnaire were used, and for data analysis the SPSS 16 software was employed using the independent t test, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and post hoc test.

Results: The mean age of patients was 51.7±12.5 years. Average rating of quality of life in patients was 3.4 ± 0.62 out of 5. The mean score of personal satisfaction of diabetes and self-care behaviors was 3.6±0.69 and 3.5±0.8, respectively. There was no statistically significant relationship between quality of life of patients with diabetes and demographic variables of age, gender, marital status, occupation and education. A significant relationship was found between frequency of hospitalization and quality of life (P<0.05). The correlation between the two areas of satisfaction and patient care behaviors was statistically significant with education (P<0.05).

Discussion and Conclusion: According to the relationship between controlling of diabetes & on self-care behaviors with patients quality of life, it is suggested that self- care training to be more considered.
