There are several unofficial names for diabetes. I've heard type 3 referring to being a caregiver of a diabetic, having type 1 with insulin resistance and alzheimers. Not heard of liver diabetes but some others are LADA, MODY, type 1.5, steroid induced diabetes, trauma induced diabetes and water diabetes. The later is an official name but refers to a type of diabetes that does not involve blood sugar, diabetes insipidus.
