Background & Aim: Parents participation in management of diabetes has been recognized to be beneficent. Recognizing parents&apos worries should be addressed to plan effective health promoting programs. This study aimed to explore parents&apos worries about life problems of adolescent girls with diabetes.

Methods & Materials: In this qualitative study, 26 parents (16 mothers and 10 fathers) of adolescent girls with type 1 diabetes were recruited using purposive sampling from the Diabetes Society in west Azerbaijan. Data were collected using in-depth and semi-structured interviews. Analysis of the transcripts was guided by qualitative content analysis.

Results: Qualitative content analysis demonstrated three original categories from parents&apos worries: 1) worries about the future 2) worries about the treatments and 3) worries about the society.

Conclusion: Better perception of parents&apos concerns may promote effective communication between health professionals and parents. Modification of parents&apos personal control and perceived threat through appropriate educational programs that acknowledge and address their concerns may be a means of empowering parents.
