Abstract The aim of this study is to identify and compare factors affecting quality of life and treatment satisfaction in people attending the structured educational programme for patients with intensified insulin therapy. A sample of 104 patients was recruited from diabetes specialized centre between November 2006 and March 2007. For measure patient's quality of life, the Audit Diabetes Dependent Quality of Life questionnaire and for measure patient's satisfaction with their treatment regimen, the Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire status version was used. Treatment satisfaction has different variables or predictors from quality of life. Quality of life was affected by the number of reported diabetic late complications, type of insulin regimen, age and diabetes duration. Type of insulin regimen, the frequency of blood glucose self-monitoring and perceived frequency of hyperglycaemia demonstrated the significant association with treatment satisfaction. Our findings might help health-care professionals have a deeper understanding of the factors affecting quality of life and treatment satisfaction and thereby aid in the design of strategies to maintain or improve quality of life and treatment satisfaction.
