This systematic review was to investigate the factors influencing glycemic control in adolescents with diabetes. The systematic review was prepared based on the Systematic Review Report Project. The review includes 15 studies. The results show that adolescents' glycemic control factors are influenced by their own and external factors, such as eating habits, emotional patterns, sleeping habits, family support and emotional suppression. Good self-regulation, independent support and personal execution can motivate adolescents to pursue an active learning model of glycemic control. To reduce the chances of juvenile diabetes, it is recommended that public awareness be raised by providing community education.
