Abstract [en]

Background: Diabetes type 2 is a disease that is getting more common in the society and the numbers of diagnosed people are expecting to grow markedly. Self-care is an important part in the managing of the disease that demands education and guidance so that persons with diabetes type 2 can take control of the disease and achieving a good health. The nurse´s responsibility is to educate the patient so that a good self-care can be pursued.

Aim: To describe persons experiences of learning to live with diabetes type 2.

Method: A literature study was carried through based on 11 qualitative scientific articles.

Results: The analysis resulted in three main themes and six sub-themes that describe the experiences of learning to live with type 2 diabetes from a patient perspective.

Conclusion: The result shows that persons with diabetes type 2 go through various periods showing the handling of the disease from diagnosis determined until the disease is accepted. Which shows how important it is with the support of health care and the environment.
