The evaluation of quality of life in health is particularly important for measuring the impact of the chronic diseases. The scales of measure constitute the main measurement tool in clinical trials because of their psychometrics properties and of their ease of use.
Among these scales, the 36-Item Short Form Survey (SF-36) and the EuroQol five dimensions questionnaire ( EQ-5D) were widely validated in various populations, of which the population of the diabetics patients. Both scales have validated versions in French.
In the Antilles and in Reunion Island, diabetes is a frequent pathology and is the subject of many clinical and epidemiological trials. One of the difficulties encountered during the implementation of these studies is the absence of measurement tools validated for these populations.
Investigators thus suggest, within a common workgroup uniting Guadeloupe, Martinique and Reunion Island, adapting and validating these scales according to an identical procedure in Creole from Guadeloupe, from Martinique and from Reunion Island and validating the French versions of these scales in their populations of type II diabetics patients.

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).
A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
