Patients' experiences of lifestyle changes in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Diabetes type 2 is an increasing global health issue. Research has shown that lifestyle changes such as diet and physical activity have a significant impact on the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Lifestyle changes are important to prevent complications and to gain a better control of the self-care.

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe patients' experiences of lifestyle changes regarding diet and physical activity in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes.

Method: A method to contribute to evidencebased practise based on analysis of qualitative research was performed. Eight articles were analyzed according to Friberg (2017). The findings were two main themes and nine sub-themes.

Results: The two main themes were obstacles during lifestyle changes and supportive factors in lifestyle changes.

Conclusion: The result showed that patients experience different feelings about lifestyle changes. Nurses need more knowledge about patients' experiences of lifestyle changes in order to provide a person-centered care and support patient's self-care.
