Abstract [en]

Background: To suffer from diabetes type II affects peoples new situation of life and therefore even their experiences of quality of life. Aim: The aim with this study was to describe how people with diabetes's type II experiences their quality of life. Method: The method that was used was a literature study with describing and deductive approach, where people’s experiences have come forth on the basis of Rustoens (1993) definition of quality of life. In total we analyzed 16 scientific articles that were categorized in four themes through a systematic content analysis (Evans, 2003) which resulted in four themes and nine subthemes. Orems (2001) theory of self-care has been used as the theoretical frame of reference. Result: In the result, it appear that people with diabetes's type II experiences quality of life differently on the basis of those four different themes, being active, to have fellowship, to have ego and to have a base spirit of happiness. The different themes conduct in different ways to create a good quality of life among people with diabetes type II. Conclusion: People with diabetes type II have a need to increase their knowledge and understanding to cope with the disease. A continuous contact with health-care and belonging to a group was important. From without the four different themes the individual can self choose to see its own needs to be able to obtain good quality of life.
