To live with type 1 diabetes as a young adult : the individuals experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

År 2012 avled 1.5 miljoner människor till följd av diabetes och förekomsten av sjukdomen ökar i världen hela tiden. Diabetes typ 1 betraktas som den allvarligaste formen av diabetes och varje år insjuknar 400 personer i åldrarna 15–34. Individen måste själv hantera 95% av sin egen diabetesvård vilket gör att hen ställs inför många krav att utföra olika former av livsstilsförändringar. Syftet med studien var att belysa unga vuxnas upplevelser av att leva med diabetes typ 1. Studien genomfördes som en systematiskt litteraturstudie med kvalitativ metod med en induktiv manifest design. Under databearbetningen framkom fem teman: upplevd rädsla, upplevelser av bristande kunskap, upplevelser av egenvård, upplevda svårigheter samt upplevelser av relationer och stöd. Resultatet i studien belyser svårigheter med egenvård, rädslor relaterade till sjukdomen, att känna sig annorlunda, svårigheter med att avslöja sin sjukdom, att känna sig dömd av andra på grund av deras okunskap, bristen på stöd och dåligt bemötande från vårdpersonal. Dessa upplevelser är viktig kunskap för sjuksköterskor för att ge en god omvårdnad och det kan vara intressant att genomföra vidare forskning kring hur individer upplever sjuksköterskans stöd samt vad sjuksköterskan kan göra för att främja egenvård.

Abstract [en]

In 2012, 1,5 million people died due to diabetes and the prevalence of the disease increases worldwide all the time. Type 1 diabetes is considered the most serious type of diabetes and every year 400 people in the ages 15-34 sicken in the disease. The individual must manage 95% of their diabetes management which puts him or her to be faced with a lot of demands to perform different kinds of lifestyle changes. The aim of this study was to illustrate young adults’ experiences of living with type 1 diabetes. The study was performed as a literature study with a qualitative methodology and inductive manifest design. In the data analysis five categories emerged: experienced fear, experiences of lack of knowledge, experiences of self-care management and experiences of relationships and support. The result of this study highlights the difficulties of self-care management, fears related to the disease, feeling different, the difficulties of disclosing the disease, feeling judged by others because of their lack of knowledge, lack of support and bad treatment from healthcare professionals. These experiences are important knowledge for nurses to give a good nurturance and it could be interesting to do further research about how individuals experience the support from the nurse and what the nurse can do to promote self-management.
