Finally, social function was significantly correlated with social dysfunction domain of life quality (P<0.05). Also, anxiety and somatoform domains of mental health had been more significantly correlated in women than men (P=0.006, P=0.025) .Of quality of life domain, physical function is more significant in men than women (P=0.03) and bodily pain is more significant in women than men (P=0.001).
