In Portugal its prevalence is about 12.7 . Quality of life (Qol) can be influenced by the individual physical and mental health, social environment and personal beliefs. Self-esteem is related to the sense of personal value or self-worth and may be a relevant aspect of coping with chronic disease. Objectives: To explore the existence of differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients regarding Qol and self-esteem. Gender differences in these two groups of patients were also investigated. Methods Participants were 333 with a DM diagnosis for over a year who completed World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQOL-Bref) and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem (RSE]. The study had a cross-sectional design. Results Patients with type 1 DM show significant higher scores in all Qol dimensions as well as in self-esteem (p < 0.05) when compared to type 2 DM patients. Concerning gender differences type 1 male patientsand type 1 female patients do not differ. When considering type 2 DM, men score significantly higher than women in self-esteem (p = 0.002) and in general Qol (p = 0.036), physical (p = 0.008), psychological (p < 0.001) and environment (p = 0.001) dimensions. Conclusions Independently of being male or female type 1 DM patients show better Qol and higher self-esteem. Regarding type 2 DM it seems important to integrate Qol and self-esteem in the overall treatment approach, particularly with women.
