Blurb/Shorttext:
This grounded theory study discovered that “Carrying on with Life and Living” was the main concern shared by Part-Europeans(Kai–Loma)from Fiji managing Type 2 diabetes.The obvious contribution of this study is in the generation of a core category and the basic social and psychological process (BSP) of WALKING THE LINE that accounted for variation in change over time, context, and behaviour in managing Type 2 diabetes. This study is relevant to chronic illness generally,and to studies of managing diabetes specifically,where a basic social process of balancing,or‘walking a fine line,featured as a core variable in their findings.This study informs readers about how Part-Europeans(Kai–Loma)from Fiji think about diabetes and how their cultural beliefs and values are manifested in their process of management.The results of this study reveal that the social and historical contexts of Part-European culture,such as heavy drinking,carrying on with life and living in the face of adversity,and taking traditional medicine impacts significantly throughout their managing process.
