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

Bakgrund: Diabetes mellitus typ 2 innebär att glukoshalten i blodet inte kan regleras korrekt. Sjukdomen behandlas både medicinskt och med livsstilsförändringar. Antalet insjuknade ökar stadigt i världen och många miljoner människor lever idag med sjukdomen.

Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva hur personer med diabetes mellitus typ 2 upplever livet.

Metod: En litteraturöversikt med induktiv ansats valdes. Tio artiklar med kvalitativ metod användes i resultatet. Analys skedde med hjälp av Fribergs 5-stegs modell där artiklarnas resultat lästes flera gånger och gemensamma resultat plockades ut och kategoriserades.

Resultat: Fyra teman identifierades där resultatet visade att personer diagnostiserade med diabetes mellitus typ 2 upplevde oro och ångest. Personerna kände även krav på att förändra sin livsstil, främst gällande kost och motion. De upplevde att tillvaron kastades omkull och att det tog lång tid att få tillbaka kontrollen. Personerna kände också att sjukdomen gjorde att omgivningen såg annorlunda på dem och att deras personlighet påverkade hanteringen av sjukdomen.

Slutsatser: En psykosocial påverkan upplevdes efter diagnostisering med diabetes mellitus typ 2. Nödvändiga anpassningar av kost och motion påverkade relationer och identitet. Sjuksköterskan spelade en viktig roll i personens egenvård där professionellt bemötande stärkte autonomi och livskvalitet. Familj, vänner och religion påverkade också förutsättningarna att hantera situationen.

Necessary adjustments related to diet and exercise had an impact on relationships and identity. The nurse played an important role in the person’s self-management and a professional treatment strengthened the person’s autonomy and quality of life.
