Abstract [en]

This is a study regarding the use of information aimed at relatives and close ones to people that is experiencing hypoglycemia due to their diabetes. And how the use of the classical rhetorical appeal pathos can be used to design such information, in order to emphasize the importance of knowing how to act when a person is experiencing the hypoglycemia state and how to make the information more relatable.

This is a design study with and academic leap containing qualitative interviews with three participants. The problem studied is the information gap between people with diabetes and their surrounding family and friends. In this study the results show that the participants face danger in environments outside their home due to the lack of knowledge about diabetes and hypoglycemia symptoms. The focus of the study is understanding how people with diabetes type-1 experience hypoglycemia, so that I can inform about this subject in a manner and language that will reach the intended receiver. Done research shows that a low knowledge regarding diabetes is more than a fact, it’s a real problem within the field of information design and textdesign.
