Clinical laboratory diagnostics (laboratory medicine) is one of the most important components of the health care system, which provides medical diagnostic assistance to patients in assessing health status, diagnosis of diseases, monitoring of the results of treatment, further prediction of the course of the disease and quality of life that has a national importance in preserving and improving  the health of  the population. The quality of  life of a sick person in modern medicine  is considered as an integral characteristic  of  her  condition  consisting  of  physical,  psychological,  and  social  components.  Each  of  them  in  turn  contains  a number of components, for example, physical – the symptoms of  the disease, the ability to perform physical work, the ability to self-service;  psychological  –  anxiety,  depression,  hostile  behavior;  social  –  social  support,  work,  public  relations,  etc.  Their comprehensive study  allows  you  to determine  the  level of quality of  life  and  find out  their  influence on  it.  It  is a  fact  that  the patient  is  involved  in  the  assessment  of  his  condition  and  his  active  involvement  in  collaboration  is  important,  since  only  the patient can provide adequate  information about  the degree of satisfaction with aspects of his  life  that are directly  related  to  the symptoms of the disease and its psychological, social and other consequences.
