Abstract [en]

Background: Type 1 Diabetes is a complex disease that the affected have to live with for the rest of their lives. The incidence among children and youth around the world are increasing and appear in increasingly younger ages. Living with a chronic disease like diabetes involves several changes in everyday life in terms of diet, exercise and insulin. It requires careful planning, good knowledge and time to get to know their body and know how to take care of it the best way. For children and young people this may mean additional difficulties when they are already at various stages of development, which can be tough enough. The aim of this study was to highlight children's and adolescence experiences of living with diabetes mellitus type 1. The method used was a qualitative literature-based study. Sixteen scientific articles found from the databases Cinahl and PubMed were included. The analyzed data were described in themes with two or three sub- themes each.

The result shows the three main themes: The implications of changes in everyday life, Thoughts and emotions and Support. The overall findings show that diabetes in some way changes the childrens and adolescence daily life. The conclusions of this is that children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes may experience changes that can imply restrictions, but also can give strength and self-awareness. Support from the environment can also be considered to have a significant role in how everyday life can be managed.
