Does anyone have any updated info on this FTL. It is from 2000. I am concerned about the HTN rating I received in 2007. This iks extract from the FTL "Complications of hypertension require separate rating. For example, separately rate hypertensive heart disease, stroke, renal complications or failure, etc. A pending General Counsel opinion re separately rating hypertension and heart disease may change this direction." What was the General Counsel decision? Was there a change as VARO ignored my heart problems and only rated me for aggravated HTN ( had high blood pressure prior to coming back on AD in 2001) Attached is rating decision from 2007. Another Cardio exam at 1pm today:( TRAINING LETTER 00-07, cardio vascular disabilities.pdf
