The experiences were also about the challenges they faced while managing their food and food habits and being physically active in their daily life. The experiences were also about their worriness and fear for the future related to type 2 diabetes complications.  

Conclusion: Conclusion is that persons living with type 2 diabetes have diverse experiences and every person with diabetes suffers and expreriences uniquely. It is important for diabetics to be understood, heard, and seen by the nurse during the care meetings so that the patient can get motivation and encouragement to make lifestyle changes.
