A randomized control research design was used for study to measure the prevalence/magnitude of quality of life, and to measure the effectiveness of mindful eating on quality of life among adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. The study was conducted in a multispecialty Hospital, Dehradun Uttarakhand.

The Audit of Diabetes-Dependent Quality of Life ((ADDQOL) in Hindi language was administered to assess their quality of life.


More than half (56%) of diabetes patients were reported extremely ‘bad quality of life’, 40% of diabetes patients were reported ‘very bad quality of life’ and least (4%) of diabetes patients reported ‘neither good or not bad quality of life’. After, the experimental group had undergone two months of mindful eating intervention, mean post test score was significantly reduced to 1.55±0.584 at the level of significance p≤0.05 form, the control group mean posttest score 5.92±1.397.
