Abstract [sv]
Diabetes is the most common endocrine disorder in adolescense. Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is a servere metabolic disorder that requires lifelong insulintherapy, medical management and individual social readjustment in order to achieve control. Teenagers with IDDM face more diverse stressors than their healthy peers. Adoescense is characterized by rapid growth, altered dietary habits and lifestyle changes, a move from a dependent to an independent state. The disease has also an impact on psychological well-being which demands socially copingstrategies. The aim of this study was to investigate what is scientificly documented about the coping strategies used by adolescents with IDDm. The method was a litterature review study and the result was based on 15 scientific publications. The result showes that the problem solving strategies, used by adoescents with IDDM, were searching for information and knowledge as well as support from others. The emotional focused coping strategies are charachterized by wishing, denial, avoidance, regression and approch coping. Factors, effecting the strategies, are teenagers age, personality and identity, social network especially friends, and health care staff´s knowledge as well as treatment. It´s importanta that health care staff inform and educate the patients and their families about the disease and the treatment who is offered. The patient need adequate social and psychological functions to maintain good coping. Behavioral strategies as problem solving skills and emotional skills are some of the useful processes to educate diabetic patients in the ability to cope with thei illness. The social network effect on coping, especially their relationships with friends, seems to be an important issue for future research among adolescents with IDDM. To perform qualitative studies among adlescents with IDDM in Sweden would enlighten how they experience their life situation.
