Resumo: The treatment of celiac disease is a gluten-free diet (GFD). The compliance witha GFD is dependent on multiple factors, which include, possibly, the quality of life (QoL).Objective: To evaluate the perception of health status and QoL in a sample of Portuguese celiacpatients, relating it to the compliance of the GFD.Material and methods: Transversal study which data collection was based on a structured ques-tionnaire prepared to be self-applied and filled in online. The QoL was evaluated throughShort-Form health survey 36 (SF-36). Categorical variables were described through proporti-ons and continuous variables were described through mean and standard deviation or medianand interquartile range.Results: The study included 195 Portuguese individuals, with a median age of 32 years. About67% of respondents believed to enjoy very good or good health. The highest mean scores wereobtained for the domains ‘‘physical functioning’’ and ‘‘role-physical’’ and the lowest scoresfor the domains ‘‘vitality’’ and ‘‘general health’’. Women had significantly lower scores forthe domains ‘‘bodily pain’’, vitality’’ and ‘‘mental health’’. There was no association foundbetween the perception of QoL and compliance with the GFD. Participants with more recentdiagnosis had lower scores in all domains of the SF-36.Conclusions: The celiac respondents rated their general health status and QoL in better levelsthan the Portuguese population in general. The QoL was not associated with compliance of theGFD.
