Default how about a sticky

How about a sticky that lists all the abbreviations that we use. this would be helpful for new members. IE BS,BG, A1C, BGL .... you get what I mean.

That's a good idea . . .

For the moment, here's a pretty comprehensive listing from Diabetes Monitor.

Shanny, that is a good list. We should create a list of abbreviations to use on here. I try and use abbreviations in a post where the member seems to have a better understanding of diabetes. If someone appears to be new, I try not to use abbreviations, I don't want to confuse someone. I want to make sure they understand me.
