My diabetes doesn't control me. Adolescent’s experiences of living with diabetes type 1. : A qualitative literature-based  study. (English)
Abstract [en]

Diabetes is a lifelong disease and it can be complicated for adolescents to handle. As a nurse you must strive to see the youth that you have in front of you, with his or hers individual needs. The aim of this study was to illustrate adolescent's experiences of their life situation with diabetes type 1. An analysis of ten qualitative studies was conducted. The analysis resulted in five themes and thirteen sub-themes.

The result showed that acceptance of the disease is crucial for being able to care for the disease. The adolescent needs to integrate the diabetes in to their daily life. Two important things for the adolescents were that they didn't want to get generalised in healthcare or be treated differently by the society. To be able to care for oneself and to not be ostracized both adolescents and people in their environment need to have knowledge about diabetes. To be able to take charge and be in control over ones one body was important for the adolescent but also to receive support. Parents played a supportive key roll but support did also come from siblings, friends, partners and other peers with diabetes. To live with diabetes during your teens is like walking on a narrow line, you can easily tilt too much or too little to one side. If you keep your balance then you can cross and get on with your life.
