Rate this question



  • Founder

it is looking more and more like i have autoimmune disorder and i have read some stuff, but nothing definitive that links jet fuel exposure to autoimmune disorder.

anyone else out there with autoimmune disorder that has been able to connect it to jet fuel exposure?

Did you have an independent medical opinion to support your claim?


kw34 did this involve JP-4 specifically?

There are many unresolved claims like this at the BVA- you did VERY WELL!

I wrote the IMOs presented them to my doc with the research info they agreed and signed my IMO the timplate was from Jim Strickland at VA watchdog I found him just before i found hadit. I was aming for presumbtion from the 1st gulf war there was a direct link. The letters were not fancy 1 page and it is at least likely as not (50/50 probibility) that it caused my condition. Jim i worked with the same tce, skydrol, pd680, tric, 5606, 7801, acetone and diesel fuel
