The aim of the present study was to investigate the Quality of Life of patients suffering from IBD and the factors that might be affecting it. The idiopathic Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) are chronic nosological entities negatively affecting the Quality Of Life of patients suffering from IBD in relation to the total population. Evaluating their Quality of Life is the basic constitution for evaluating their needs and for designing the suitable health care system to be provided. In the province of Larnaca the SIBDQ questionnaire translated in the Greek language was used to evaluate 100 patients suffering from Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease. We studied the Quality of Life as a dependent variable correlated with the independent variables that are the demographic and general characteristics of this patient group.
