There is much medical terminology related to diabetes, which at times can be overwhelming and confusing.  We believe that providing a glossary of terms related to diabetes may help people better understand diabetes.  The more one understands, the easier it is to manage diabetes.

Thus, this Diabetes Glossary was developed as an integral part of the Johns Hopkins Patient Guide to Diabetes website.  Many terms are cross-referenced, and the on-line glossary continues to expand.  We hope readers find this resource helpful.

All of the terms included on our website are included in a downloadable PDF available for you to print.
