    Abstract [en]

    When a child is diagnosed with diabetes the whole life situation of the family is affected. The disease affects the family in several ways and the reactions occur when it is a lifelong disease. To increase understanding of the situation of the family where a child suffers from diabetes and to support the family, from the perspective of public health, requires knowledge of the family's perception and coping with the situation. The purpose of this study was to illustrate how families experiences and copes with the situation when a child is suffering from type 1 diabetes, according to the following questions: How does the family experience that life is affected when a child is suffering from diabetes? How does the family cope with their changed life situation? The study is based on a literature review on a total of 11 articles. The result of the family's experiences and management was split into seven and four themes. The whole family is affected when a family has a child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The time immediately after the diagnosis can be compared to a crisis. The parents ended up in shock and felt guilt. The whole family experienced feelings of grief and loss. Some parents had difficulty accepting the diagnosis and both parents and siblings experienced stress and anxiety. As a parent of a child with diabetes the situation "all-clear" never occurs, they are often confronted with new challenges such as when the child becomes a teenager and throughout adolescence. The family used various coping strategies to deal with the situation. They sought, among other things, knowledge about the disease and support from others with similar experiences. The everyday life was undergoing big changes and the family found a new model of everyday life where also the sick child's need was included.
