Abstract

Purpose

The study aimed to analyze the association between frailty and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) based on the Korean Frailty and Aging Cohort Study.

Methods

In this cross-sectional study, 2905 adults aged 70 to 84 years were enrolled. Frailty was determined according to the Fried frailty index. HRQOL was measured using the 5-level EuroQol questionnaire (EQ-5D-5L) and the 12-item Short-Form Health Survey version 2 (SF-12). Hierarchical linear regressions were conducted to examine the relationship between frailty and HRQOL and a logistic regression analysis was performed to estimate odds ratios of frailty status in the scores of the lowest quartiles in each scale.

Results

Of the total respondents, 7.8% were frail, 47.0% were pre-frail, and 45.2% were robust. Frail respondents had significantly lower HRQOL scores than robust respondents, especially for EQ-5D-5L utility weights (0.74 vs 0.93). Frailty was strongly associated with decreased HRQOL in both physical and mental component summary of SF-12 (p < 0.001). Both pre-frail and frail states were related to greater odds of scoring in the bottom 25% of HRQOL scales compared to the non-frail state (p < 0.0001).

Conclusion

Frailty was associated with declined HRQOL in Korean older adults. This result recommends raising awareness about identifying and preventing frailty for better quality of life in the Korean elderly population.
