To live with type II diabetes : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I Sverige finns det cirka 365 000 diabetiker. Diabetes typ II är en kronisk sjukdom som gör att de som har denna sjukdom behöver ha kontinuerlig kontakt med en sjuksköterska. I denna kontakt är det viktigt att sjuksköterskan ser alla patienter som individer med olika behov. Diabetes typ II uppkommer bland annat på grund av övervikt, matvanor, stillasittande livsstil samt rökning. Behandlingen består av ändrade kost- och motionsvanor, tabletter eller insulin. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att belysa hur patienter med diabetes typ II upplever sin sjukdom samt mötet med sjukvården. Metod: Studien är en allmän litteraturstudie baserad på 11 vetenskapliga artiklar som blev analyserade. Resultat: Efter analys av artiklar framkom tre centrala teman som utgör resultatet: Att få sjukdomsbeskedet, Rädsla för komplikationer och förnekelse, Att ta kontroll över sjukdomen och acceptera sjukdomen. Diskussion: De tre centrala fynd som presenteras i diskussionen är: Ett övergripande fynd om hälsa. Ett andra fynd om bristande information och ett sista fynd om skillnader mellan män och kvinnors syn på att leva med diabetes typ II.
