Summary
Brief summary
Objectives:
1)
The primary objective is to conduct a survey to assess the suitability of current available quality of life questionnaires for use in our local Malaysian diabetic population.
2) To develop and validate a socially and culturally adapted quality of life measurement scale to successfully measure the quality of life among Malaysian diabetic population that can be projected to the Asian population in the future.
3) To measure the QOL among Malaysian diabetics and to analyze the factors that contributes to determining QOL.
4) To determine if diabetes control is an important factor for QOL using a perspective study.
5) To measure QOL in other south-east Asia countries using the newly developed ADQOL and to compare with Malaysian population.

Methodology
The study is divided into 5 main parts as follows:
I. Survey to assess the understanding of the local population to the current available quality of life assessment tools.
II. The development and validation of the Asian Diabetes Quality of Life (AD-QOL) questionnaire to accurately measure the quality of life in a multi-cultural, multi-language population.
III. Cross-sectional study to assess the QOL among diabetics in Malaysia using AD-QOL.
IV. Prospective study of diabetics in Malaysia
