Abstract: Studies show that type 2 diabetes (DM2) has a negative impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL). The aim is to disclose peculiarities of HRQoL and sleep quality among males and females with DM2 and relatively healthy participants (RHP). Methods: 88 patients with DM2 (mean age – 63.07 10.48; 30 males, 58 females) and 101 RHP (mean age of 60.31 9.91; 26 males, 75 females) were investigated. The WHOQoL-BREF and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) questionnaires were used. Findings: Females with DM2 reported worse HRQoL than males in physical, psychological and environmental domains (p50.05), higher sleep disturbances and daytime dysfunctions (p50.01). HRQoL negatively correlated with the quality of sleep in males and females with DM2 (p50.05). Females from RHP group tended to use more sleeping medications than females with DM2 (p50.01). In conclusion, negative impact of DM2 on HRQoL and quality of sleep is expressed more in females than in males
