Abstract
Epilepsy is a chronic condition, which is known to have negative
effects on an individual's quality of life. We evaluated major variables associated
with the quality of life of epileptics in Korea. We evaluated the quality of life in
epilepsy (QOLIE-31) of 202 epileptic adults at Keimyung University Dongsan
Medical Center. Eight of the most serious QOLIE concerns were as follows: seizure
worry, overall QOL, emotional well-being, energy and fatigue, cognitive
functioning, medication effects, social functioning, and overall health. We assessed
the correlation between QOLIE concerns and the clinical parameters such as age,
gender, marital status, duration of education, seizure onset, duration of illness,
number of antiepileptic drugs, etc. The mean subscores of QOLIE-31 items were
54.9 (medication effects), 52.0 (energy-fatigue), 50.1 (overall QOL), 42.4 (seizure
worry), 41.5 (emotional well-being), 36.3 (social functioning), and 30.9 (cognitive
functioning). We found significant differences in many aspects of quality of life
with respect to age (overall QOL and energy-fatigue), gender (seizure worry,
emotional well-being, medication effects and overall health), education (cognitive
functioning and social functioning), economic status (overall QOL, emotional wellbeing
and overall health), number of antiepileptic drugs (emotional well-being)
and frequency of seizure (energy-fatigue). We identified several related factors for
poor QOL outcomes in patients with epilepsy. These results provide informations
about patients with epilepsy that may help with their emotional support, as well
as drug treatment.
