Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Diabetes är en kronisk sjukdom som kan påverka hela människan och dess omgivning. Sjuksköterskans förståelse av patientens upplevelser och erfarenheter kan ha stor betydelse i omvårdnaden. Att vara ung och leva med diabetes kan vara svårt och attityder till sjukdomen kan påverka egenvården. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva ungdomars upplevelser av att leva med diabetes typ 1. Metod: Denna allmänna litteraturstudie bygger på empiriska studier. Resultat: Analysen resulterade i fyra följande kategorier: Relation till sin diabetes, relation till föräldrar, relation till vänner och relation till sjukvårdspersonalen. Åtta subkategorier bildades: positiva och negativa effekter, stöd, konflikter, bryta sig loss, stöd, att känna sig annorlunda, relation till läkare och relation till sjuksköterskor. Diskussion: Vårdpersonalen kan stödja ungdomar med diabetes genom att ge dem mer ansvar. Genom att förstå ungdomarnas upplevelser kan sjuksköterskan ge dem en förbättrad omvårdnad. Sjuksköterskan kan använda sig av empowermentmodellen, vilket innebär att patienten blir mer delaktig i sin behandling och tilldelas mer ansvar över sin situation.

Abstract [en]

Background: Diabetes is a chronic illness, which affects the ill person as well as the people in its immediate surroundings. The nurses' understanding of the experiences of the patients is also a vital part of the treatment. Being young and living with diabetes could be difficult and the attitude towards the illness can affect the diabetes self-care. Objectives: The aim of the literature study was to describe the experience of young people living with diabetes type 1. Method: This study is a general literature study that consists of empiric studies. Result: The analysis led to the following four categories: Relationship to diabetes, relationship to parents, relationship to friends and the relationship to the health care personnel. Eight subcategories were formed: Positive and negative effects, support, conflicts, detachment, support, feeling different and the relationship to physicians and nurses. Discussion: Nursing personnel can support youth with diabetes by giving them more responsibility. Understanding the experiences of the youths improves the care taking of the nurses. Nurses can use the empowerment model, which makes the patient more involved in the treatment as well as feeling more responsible about their situation.
