When life is a rollercoaster : A literature-based study about living with a child with diabetes (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Diabetes is one of Sweden's national diseases. Around 7000 children live with type 1 diabetes in Sweden today. The diagnosis requires planning of everyday life and revaluation of routines which places great demands on the family.

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe parents and siblings' experiences of living with a child or young adult diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

Method: The study was designed as a literature-based study to contribute to evidence-based nursing based on analysis of qualitative research to reach a deeper understanding of families' experiences. An analysis of thirteen qualitative articles resulted in four main themes and ten subthemes.

Results: The results of the study showed that the whole family is affected when a child gets diabetes. That the child was diagnosed was a shock that caused many feelings with both parents and siblings. There was a constant concern for complications in both the long and short term, resulting in a fear to hand over responsibility, causing a huge pressure on parents who could feel isolated.

Conclusion: The families experienced strong feelings when the child was diagnosed. The families needed support from the healthcare professionals to be able to handle the disease.
