Description: The Norwegian generic and diabetes-specific DISABKIDS modules demonstrated sufficient validity and reliability and seem to be applicable to Norwegian childhood diabetes populations.

The Norwegian childhood diabetes population seem to have HRQOL score similar to other European DISABKIDS studies. Diabetes teams should be encouraged to use HRQOL instruments to uncover which patients need greater effort in order to apply personalized treatment regimes. Insulin Pump treatment does not seem to positively affect HRQOL compared to intensive injection treatment.

the diabetes team can influence the HRQOL of the patients as there was a centre difference and because HRQOL is influenced by glycaemic control and insulin regimen. Girls seem to need extra support.

Good glycemic control and a high level of treatment Satisfaction are associated with a positive QoL in youths with early-onset type 1 diabetes. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
