    Sounds like the PC police are out and about again. Personally I don't care what the medics call me. I just want good care and the correct medication.

    PC gone mad. I have had type 1 diabetes for 48+ years and have never been troubled by being called diabetic. As others have said the authors of this report surely have better things to do with their time.
