Diabetic Dictionary

Since finding the DOC over a year ago, I've learnt lots of new phrases and words to describe certain Diabetic problems/instances. Unfortunately there isn't a Diabetes manual.... so I thought creating a Diabetic Dictionary would be a close second :)

What words/phrases would you have in your Diabetic Dictionary? Mine to start off is Glucoaster, as I've been riding it for a good couple of weeks now, which sucks big time!!!!

A - A1c
B -
C -
D - Diabetes mellitus
E -
F -
G - Glucoaster
H - Haemoglobin
I - Insulin Dependent Diabetes
J -
K -
L -
M -
N -
O -
P -
Q -
R -
S -
T -
U -
V -
W - WTFructose!
X -
Y -
Z -

Great post, Emma! Just in case you haven't seen it, Six Until Me has a Diabetes Terms of Endearment e-book you can find with many terms. Same goes for Sanofi and it's own Diabetapedia at http://www.diabetapedia.com/

Might be good to find more terms!!

Well, my word for when my pump jumps off my waistband and bounces in the air on the tubing is "Bungee Pumping". LOL If you'd like to include that, you are more than welcome to!!
