Blimey. Usual caveats obviously, but still a remarkable result. Are diabetes and depression one condition or two?

Interesting how this ongoing ignoring of serious consequences is disproportionately represented in women's health issues e.g. this & vaginal mesh implants.

That's how I've described diabetes, most of the time it's like an annoying flatmate, always there!

I agree actually, language does matter but "diabetic" isn't the issue. To object 2 "diabetic" is to accept stigma. Think about it, does any1 object 2 being called "a genius"? No, but nouns for low IQ r insults.

I was really irritated by a new assistant at ophthalmologist talking 2 me like I'm an idiot-I was seeing the Dr probs b4 she was born, file an inch thick-etc etc. She asks me if I'm an "insulin diabetic" after asking about control. F&^% off & read the file if it matters.

I heard that many years ago there was an Australian guy who DID get away with exactly that-a friend studying law told me about it.

Not if they've been educated & entrenched in the typical medical system, fundamental change in HC required not trying to tack on some soft skills & hoping to override decades of training 2 do the opposite.
