One of our community members, Lurina Fourie, has created this fabulous Type 1 diabetes dictionary for us to share. Here’s what she says:
Enjoy this handy bundle of short descriptions of common acronyms, abbreviations and terms used within the Type1 Diabetes community. The information was compiled from various diabetes related websites as well as a variety of people living with or dealing with type 1 diabetes, worldwide.
Please note: it is impossible to list everything diabetes related. It would also be beneficial to research each of the listings on your own, if you would like to know more. It was created for fun, so…… happy reading
