“…In this study, a moderate-high WC was a significant contributor to a worst outcome in general QoL; this is strongly associated to a poor QoL (34). Exercise has been shown to reduce WC in HIV-patients (35); therefore, there may be a role for exercise as a potential strategy to improve nutritional status and, consequently, QoL (31,35).…”

“…Substantiating previously reported findings in the general population as well as in CHD patients, worse HeartQoL outcomes were found in female patients (14;19;20). Several underlying causes have been suggested; some suggest women tend to over report their problems during interviews because women verbalize better than men (21); others argue that women perceive symptoms in a different way (22;23); also, higher depression rates (which has also been seen in the EUROAPSIRE III and IV surveys), lower sense of coherence (i.e., experiencing the world as comprehensible, meaningful and manageable) and social status (continuing demand in home environment) are referred to as reasons for worse HRQL outcomes in females (24)(25)(26). Similar to the general population, worse HeartQoL scores were seen with increasing age due to the aging process which is associated with a deterioration of both physical and mental abilities (27).…”
