    Ok, this one's totally O/T (yes, Off topic for whomever asked that), but in chat we came up with BGP-- Big Girl Panties.

    As in, get on your BGP and do what needs to be done!

    Here's a new one, I think.

    EB - extended bolus.

    An extended bolus is when, with a pump, you give no insulin up front for the food and instead extend the entire bolus out for a particular time frame, like one, two or three hours.
    This is different than a combo or dual wave bolus where part of the bolus is given up front and the remaining amount is extended out for a particular time frame.

    EB (or square wave bolus) - also known in my household as '%&**$' .... still failing miserably at this.:eek:

    EB is supposed to be great for things like pizza, except we fail each and every time.

    I think I'm going to start using BG for blood glucose numbers that are in a good range, and BS for blood sugar numbers that are way out of range.

    Acronyms

    Some people do use "d" for "diabetes" instead of "dear" -- I've seen that in posts and in signatures. That's one you'll have to take in context a little.

    I asked someone and they said it is technically Obsessive Jonas Disorder, as you can be obsessive over one Jonas, and not all of the "brothers." Lol. :)
