SILVA, Isabel et al. Impact of social support on quality of life, glycaemiccontrol and disease chronic complications in diabeticpatients. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2003, vol.4, n.1, pp.21-32. ISSN 1645-0086.

The objective of the present study is to analyse the effects of social support on quality of life, glycaemic control and disease chronic complications in diabetic patients. A convenience sample included 316 diabetic patients; 44.6% males; aged between 16 and 84 years (M=48.39; DP=16.90), 41.8% (n=132) with type 1 diabetes and 58.2% (n=184) with type 2 diabetes. Disease duration varies between 4 months e 43 years (M=13.66; DP=9.32) and 59.8% of those patients suffers from diabetes chronic complications. Results emphasise the idea that social support perception has an important role in diabetic patients' glycaemic control and quality of life. Concerning to diabetic chronic complications presence, results only suggest that patients who suffer from them report less satisfaction with their friends.
