What Happens If You're Sc For A Disease & A Cure Is Found For It?


blessed1

Question

Hello All;

If you're SC for Diabetes with many Secondary Service Connected Diseases and a cure is found for Diabetes, what happens then? Will you loose your SC for Diabetes and all SC Diseases?

It has been reported that the University of Central Florida has found a cure for Diabetes and within the next four years, a pill will be available to cure Diabetes. Of all things, it is made from Lettuce and when you take the pill for four months, including insulin dependant diabetics, you will be cured of Diabetes.

Thanks for all your comments and info.

Keep the Faith!

We know for those who bear the scars of war, the battle never ends.

Heck if I can get my SC conditions cured. I will go back to work.

No Pill will do it. Surgery Nope. Time Travel and change of events. YES

I think U don't need to worry much. It takes years and years to get drugs approved and procedures. Then the VA has to use it. Then it has to be proven. Then the VA has to reeval if they want. By then U will be dead.

Of course Time Travel and fixing my problem might happen 1st.

"Of all things, it is made from Lettuce and when you take the pill for four months, including insulin dependant diabetics, you will be cured of Diabetes."

There are the expected side affects of this pill:

1. You will hop a lot.

2. You may wiggle your nose for no apparrent reason.

3. Your ears could become drastically lonnnnger.

And there are side affects still to be determined, but multiple births are common...................frequently.

oh, yeah, one other thing...........you'll grow this funny little tail.

And the serious answer is that if your condition was "cured" and / or reduced in severity - it could be re-rated. It would STILL have to be service connected though - at 0% - right?

Hello...I don't think diabetes can be cured...but it can be controlled...it is the same when a person elects to have gastic bypass surgery... In a metanalysis review published in JAMA in 2004 the report stated that there was resolution of diabetes in an average of 70% of patients after bypass, and gastric banding was also effective, though slightly less so ...this could be due to lower weight...which in most cases will help lower one's A1c which is a good thing. Regardless of one's VA benifit...if there is any proven procedure or medication that can improve one's quality of life in order to become more independent should be the bottom line...as far as S/C that won't change...as far as one's rating goes...well that could be effected depending upon the improvement and what critera you would then fall into...At this time that is a moot point...

Miracles can happen. However, if a Veteran has been disabled and is miraculously cured and has not been able to work for say 15 years they probably are dependent on the check. Lets face it someone who has not worked in 15 years would not be suddenly employable and if they could work they would have to take a lower tier job.

Although I am not service connected for diabetes I have it and plan to do lap band surgery. In my opinion it is the only way I can lose weight and probably reduce or maybe cure my diabetes. I suspect it will also help depression cause most feel better when something good happens.

However, from the original question I would guess that the VA would reduce the rating of someone who had severe diabetes to a lower or 0% if it was cured.

If you have had diabetes for a few years and it was cured I doubt that the side effects suffered would go away and I guess that they would still have to be rated.

You would probably have to be "cured" for a certain amount of time before they can determine you are "cured."

With cancer - the VA rates you 100% until a certain amount of time has passed AFTER whatever was supposed to have cured you.

Then they rate on residuals.

So if someone took something for diabetes that was really supposed to actually cure them - the VA should wait a certain amount of time AFTER that - to make sure the cure at least appears to be effective - and then would rate the person on residuals -- all the side issues that came from the diabetes. (i.e. even if the diabetes itself was actually cured - you would still be rated for the toll it had taken on your body - at the level of disability for THAT.)

And when you get right down to it - with MANY diseases - the biggest part of the disability stems from the other havoc the disease causes in your body.

At Rio Hondo Hospital in Downey, Ca., there is an (diabetic) aputation ward (building). I wonder if this pill will grow new legs for these Veteran Amputees.

Many are blind, have kidney problems, and much much more. There is no cure for these secondary diabetic conditions.

You sure got us, didn't you blessed1.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
