Objectives: to identify the most affected domains in the quality of life in people with 2 type diabetes. Methods: systematic search in LILACS, Pubmed, Embase and Google Scholar data bases for observational studies that measure quantitatively the quality of life for patients with diabetes type 2, despite comorbidity or functional status, in the ambulatory or hospital setting in Colombia. In order to identify the most affected domains, it was carried out a cumulative meta-analysis of observational studies aimed to measure life quality through the Health Questionnaires SF-36 (Short Form-36) and SF-8 (Short Form-8), and also, a Random effects model was conducted, which allowed the average as a measure of combined effect. Results: seven articles were identified, of which four were included in the quantitative synthesis, the most affected domains according to SF-36 and SF-8 were general health 49.7 (95% CI: 37.3 to 62.0), physical role 53.6 (95% CI: 35.6 to 71.6), physical function 53.8 (95% CI: 34.8 to 72.8). Conclusion: Preventive and care programs for people with type 2 diabetes should focus on comprehensive management that contributes to quality of life improvement concerned health.
