Diabetes mellitus type 2 is a rapidly increasing disease worldwide. The disease is connected to lifestyle. Making lifestyle changes is hard. When suffering from Diabetes mellitus type 2 it is necessary to live healthy to prevent secondary diseases. Lifestyle changes includes for example changing dietary habits, become psychically active or losing weight.

This qualitative study was conducted as a literature study through analysis of relevant scientific articles. The results show that both patients and nurses experience difficulties managing lifestyle changes. Social support is important for the patient to succeed in making a change. It is important that there is a mutual interaction between the patient and the nurse for the patient to succeed to make a lifestyle change.
