  1. Data are given as means with standard deviation, and paired sample t-tests were applied to detect significant differences between baseline and follow-up.
  2. * Range from 16 to 112, where 112 means high GQOL.
  3. **Range 5–35, where 35 means high GQOL.
  4. ***Range 6–42, where 42 means high GQOL.
  5. **** P-values marked with bold indicate statistically significant p-values.
  6. QOLS = quality of life scale.
