Anxiety, depression, and eating disorders are higher in adolescents and young adults with diabetes than in their unaffected counterparts worldwide. This descriptive qualitative research paper, using secondary analysis, described the experiences of adolescents and young adults living with depression and Type 1 diabetes. The study showed that depression negatively affected the participants physically, emotionally, and socially and impacted on their relationships. Negative dimensions of self had a flow-on effect for health management. A deeper understanding of these experiences may assist health professionals to enhance the management of affected adolescents and young adults, leading to better health outcomes.
