Abstract: In this thesis, we first evaluated DM knowledge among the general population in Thailand and found this to be generally fair, but with the residents in other central provinces outperforming those in the capital, and the factors associated with DM knowledge differing in the two groups. Next, the results from our cross-cultural adaptation and validation of the Thai ADDQoL-19, a DM-specific QoL instrument, found it to be a promising tool. Likewise, the outcomes from our evaluating the psychometric properties of the Thai DTSQs, a DM-specific treatment satisfaction instrument, suggested additional revisions for its improvement. We further assessed PROs of Thai DM patients and found DM had little effect on the patients¿ perceived health status but major negative impact on their QoL while their treatment satisfaction was high. The factors associated with these PROs again differed. Finally, we also detected no significant association between polypharmacy and QoL in our patient sample.
