Introduction : self-care activities require a lot of adaptation from people living with type 2 diabetes.Context : existing interventions to support self-care are often determined by a conventional vision focused on managing the disease.Objective : this article aims to present the difficulties of people living with type 2 diabetes in relation with the Audulv, Asplund and Norbergh self-care integration model.Method : a narrative review of the literature on self-care in adults with type 2 diabetes was conducted on the CINAHL, MEDLINE, PsycINFO, PASCAL and FRANÇIS databases.Results : 29 articles were selected. The main difficulties related to self-care are identified according to the four phases of the self-care integration model and the four factors related to the person's life context.Discussion : nurses could pull out some benefits from using the Audulv model by understanding the difficulties that the patients are living with and using this method, they could intervene with a better understanding towards the patients.Conclusion : further studies are needed to elaborate strategies to support people according to each of the identified difficulties.
