I started this new free diabetes news site called Diabetes News Hound and we used the word diabetic in one of our headlines. I have had diabetes for 8 years and never thought twice about using the term "diabetic" and never had a problem with anyone using that term in reference to me. However, I received e-mail from a few people suggesting that calling a person "diabetic" is offensive. We have tried to be sensitive to this topic since. What's your take, do you find the term offensive?
And, if you have time, I would love feedback on Diabetes News Hound as I always want to improve it.
