This diabetes dictionary, brought to you be the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse (NDIC), defines words that are often used when people talk or write about diabetes. It is designed for people who have diabetes and for their families and friends.
The words are listed in alphabetical order. Some words have many meanings; only those meanings that relate to diabetes are included. Words that appear in bold are defined elsewhere in the dictionary. A term will refer the reader to another definition only when the second definition gives additional information about a topic that is directly related to the first term.
Information in this dictionary is not a substitute for your health care professional's advice.
