Heterogeneity of studies was assessed using I-2 index. Data were analyzed using STATA version 11. Results: In 96 studies of 17,994 people, the mean score of QOL in diabetic patients was based on the questionnaires WHOQOL 66.55 (95% CI: 45.83, 87.26)], D-39 129.43 (95%CI: 88.77, 170.10)], SF-36 65.64 (95% CI: 59.82, 71.46)], SF-20 46.50 (95% CI: 37.19, 55.81], DQOL 61.19 (95% CI: 35.73, 86.66)], QOL 117.91 (95% CI: -62.97, 298.79)], PedsQL 34.36 (95% CI: -31.49, 100.22)], ADDQOL 41.76 (95% CI: 12.01-71.50)], SWED-QUAL 59.19 (95% CI: 21.15, 97.23)], IRDQOL 105.92 (95% CI: 102.73, 109.10)], PHG-2 61.00 (95%CI: 59.63, 62.37)], EQ-5D 0.62 (95% CI: 0.61, 0.64)], DQOL-BCI 3.40 (95% CI: 3.31, 3.49)], and IDQOL-BCI 22.63 (95% CI: -2.38, 47.64)].
