Evaluation of the percentage of T1DM patients with controlled glycemia reflected by HbA1 c
at targets* according to guidelines (1) (2) in predefined age groups** (3).
The assessment of this primary objective is based on country or region (e.g. group of
countries) data analyses; the analysis of the global population will be supportive.
* HbA1 c < 7.5 % for patients < 18 years old (ISPAD) and HbA1 c < 7% for patients ≥ 18 years old (ADA).
** [8-12], [13-18] and [19-25] years based on the PedsQL group of age evaluation.
1. Quality of life (QOL) of T1DM patients evaluated with PedsQL questionnaires (to be
completed by patients and parents/guardian) in the different
predefined age classes (subgroup analysis with controlled and uncontrolled patients).
2. Evaluation of the emotional status using the PAID (Problem Areas In Diabetes)
questionnaire for patients aged 13 to 25 years old and PAID-PR questionnaire
3. Association between main objectives (i.e. glycemic control and QOL) and patient’s
characteristics, treatment, structure and process of care in the different predefined age
