    Not the common usual medical terms except for Kusmaul's respiration, although, the disease entities themselves are not common as well.

    Ey very interesting thread.

    I'm diabetic, and I think I just have heard one or two of the terms you mentioned. As a diabetic one believe to know a lot of the disease, but there are lots of things and details that we ignore.
    I'll ask my endocrinologist for more "curious" terms related to diabetes.

    Thanks

    Lightbulb excellent thread-Id like to add a term..

    Dawn effect is defined as an increase in the blood sugar in the morning and is typically invoked in the context of diabetes.

    It is different from Chronic Somogyi rebound in that dawn effect is not associated with nocturnal hypoglycemia.

    It is possible that dawn effect is caused by the release of counterregulatory hormones such as cortisol, glucagon, epinephrine, all of which can signal the liver to release glucose

    Kussmaul's respiration can be seen in any acidosis -- think that is important to note as a sign of shock.
