Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I världen finns det ca 425 miljoner människor som har sjukdomen Diabetes mellitus. Av dessa uppskattas det att ca 1 miljon barn och vuxna har diabetes typ 1. Ungdomar som diagnostiseras med diabetes typ 1 upplever ofta problem att balansera sin egenvård och sin vardag.

Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie är att beskriva unga människors upplevelse av att leva med typ 1 diabetes.

Metod: En litteraturstudie genomfördes av kvalitativa studier. Nio kvalitativa artiklar införskaffades från databaserna Cinahl, Pubmed och PsychINFO. Artiklarna kvalitetsgranskas och inkluderades i resultatet samt analyserades.

Resultat: Resultatet presenterar fyra huvudteman: Att känna sig annorlunda, Att uppleva diabetes som en börda, Att behöva stöd, Att lära känna sin sjukdom. Huvudtemana belyser de områden som ungdomar med diabetes typ 1 möter i hanteringen av sin sjukdom.

Konklusion: Att bli diagnostiserad med en kronisk sjukdom som ung innebär många svårigheter, där ungdomarna behöver professionellt stöd. I rollen som sjuksköterska behövs förståelse för de nyckelaspekter som påverkar ungdomar, för att kunna ge adekvat stöd.
