Support for teenagers with type 1 diabetes. : A literature study (English)
Abstract [en]

Abstract

Introduction: Diabetes type 1 is a chronic autoimmune disease requiring lifelong insulin therapy. Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common endocrine disorders affecting children and adolescents and the disease is often accompanied by severe complications. Treatment of type 1 diabetes is greatly facilitated by self-motivation to achieve good self-care and thereby reduce the risk of complications. It is important with good treatment and support to reach young people with type 1 diabetes for them to accept their illness and learn to live with it.

Purpose: The purpose of this literature study is to describe the support young people with type 1 diabetes may need to live with their disease.

Method: Literature review made up of current scientific journal articles and scientific reports published the last 10 years. The articles were searched on the databases PubMed and Cinahl.

Results:  Sixteen articles were found. In the analysis of the articles, 5 themes emerged: support from parents and family, support from healthcare, support from friends and support from others with diabetes. The result of the literature study shows that young people need positive support and feedback to manage their illness and self-care.

Conclusions: The teenagers with type 1 diabetes need support to manage their illness. This is achieved through a good communication from health care, parents, family, friends and groups, and this in turn leads to a personal development which increases knowledge and gives them experience to take responsibility in their own care.
