Objectives: The aim of this study was examined the effects of asthma on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and compared it with HRQoL in the general Korean population using the results of a cross-sectional, nationwide survey.
Methods: Data were obtained from 229,131 participants (5,989 with asthma and 223,142 without asthma) in the 2010 Korean Community Health Survey. We compared EuroQol (EQ)-5D and EQ-visual analogue scale (VAS) scores after adjusting for sociodemographic and psychosocial factors as well as for comorbidities. Logistic regressions were used to explore determinants for the lowest quartile HRQoL in the asthma group.
Conclusions: Asthma was associated with impaired HRQoL especially in pain and anxiety/depression problems compared with the non-asthma.
