ALMEIDA, J. Paulo  e  PEREIRA, M. Graça. Questionário de Avaliação da Qualidade de Vida para adolescentes com Diabetes Tipo 1: Estudo de validação do DQOL. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.2, pp.295-307. ISSN 0870-8231.

Diabetes Type 1 is a complex chronic disease that is difficult to control specially during adolescence. This is due in part to the developmental transition of adolescence from dependency on parents to a more autonomous lifestyle. Adolescence is also marked by a change in psychosocial characteristics that have an impact on adherence to treatment, metabolic control and quality of life in diabetics. The purpose of this study is to adapt a questionnaire of quality of life for adolescents with diabetes Type 1. The research included 256 adolescents, aged 10 to 18 years from the Pediatric Department of Hospital S. João - Porto. Diabetes was diagnosed at least a year prior to data collection. The Portuguese version of DQOL has a smaller number of items than the original version gathered in 3 factors that assess IMPACT of Diabetes in the adolescent day to day life (13 itens), SATISFACTION with treatment and life (17 itens) and WORRY towards the future (6 itens). The scale shows an excellente internal consistency. The intercorrelation between the subscales is also good. The scale is able to descriminate between gender and age according to three phases of adolescence in two of the subscales. It also shows an excellent convergent validity being highly correlated with a questionnaire of anxiety towards diabetes.
