  1. I am 100 percent disabled. I was denied Hypothyrodism 2019. It is on appeal. The VA added it as a new claim Jun 13, 2021. The claim is being reviewed under the Nehmer case, because VA added it to the agent orange diseases. Since I am 100 percent when the claim is completd am I eligible for a rectroactive payment? thank you
  2. I just proved that a 23 yr old veteran likely had/has non-malignant parathyroid nodules and hypothyroidism due to exposure to HF radio as hull tech/damage control team for a 270 day cruise under 3.309 and 3.311. Two hours well spent. Hows your day going?
  3. To: Subject: NDAA Agent Orange Presumptive Conditions January 6, 2021 Directors (00): Please distribute to National Call Centers and Public Contact Teams. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (NDAA) (H.R.6395) added three (3) more conditions to the Agent Orange presumptive-conditions list wherein Veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange may qualify for benefits: bladder cancer, hypothyroidism, and Parkinsonism, or Parkinson-like symptoms. Veterans and survivors are encouraged to submit claims. Thank you. Office of Field Operations- NCC
  4. I was diagnosed with Diabetes type 2 on 2 Mar 10, my last day on active duty was 28 Feb 09. I was denied service connection when I filed since I was officially diagnosed 3 days outside the 1 year window. I never appealed this claim. I was rated 60% in 2010 and never looked back. I recently happened across this site and realized, I might be able to reopen the case and submit a nexus letter stating that the diabetes manifested within the one year of me leaving active duty if not before. Lab test taken on 25 Feb 09 show a Glucose reading of 324. For some reason HB A1C test wasn't take until 2 Mar 10. My HB A1C was 12.5. The 2 Mar 10 date puts me inside the 1 year window. There is no way my diabetes appeared in 3 days after the 1 year window. I am also service connected with Hypothyrodism (Hashimotos) which caused weight gain and slows the metabolism. I was diagnosed in 1998. Some medical evidence also shows slow thyroid can cause Diabetes. Due to weight gain from my underactive thyroid, I was clinically obese on active duty. If I can't get Diabetes added by showing it is service connected, maybe I can add it as a secondary to my Hypothyrodisim. What are your thoughts?
