comment Does the word “units” have a valid abbreviation?
I think in most contexts -- including the example I used -- this would be implicit; we already know we're measuring water, but we want to know whether the measurement is in teaspoons/buckets/whatever. Unless you're just being asked what your favorite unit of measurement is, or something. (Mine is the Smoot)

comment Does the word “units” have a valid abbreviation?
Updated to clarify that I wasn't specifically asking about a medical context. Am I correct in reading this answer as saying that U/M or UOM could be accurate abbreviations for my definition of the word Units?

IU has a specific meaning (a subset of all possible units). But well noted that the abbreviation U may be ambiguously interpreted as a synonym for IU.

comment Difference between “empathetic” and “empathic”
As per bye's answer, an empath is also a person in a fantasy/science fiction novel who has some psychic ability to read another person's mind or feelings. This may be a desirable or an undesirable association.
