My experience with controling type ll diabetes is, my doctor did not give me all the inforimation on how to do it. I have been a type ll diabetic since 1986 and treated it with diet and excrise, then pills and finaley with insulin and a needle which I hated. All of these methods worked to some extent but i couldn't always get the control I wanted. If you take insulin you have to be careful, to much can put you in a diabetic coma. I have been there a few times. To little and it won,t do the job. My doctor recommeded I on the insulin pump in Jan 2011 and its the best investmen I ever made. The pump takes care of all the calculations and tells you how much insulin to take for the carbs you have eaten to get your blood sugar down to a number which is programed into the pump. The pump is so accurate I can tell you within 5 numbers what my blood sugar will be 3 hours after I eat. Keep up with the carbs and the pump will do the rest. All the information is programed into the pump by a doctor using the patient past med ical records and can be fined tuned. There are several different companys that manufactor these pumps. Lok on the internet for insulin pumps. My pump is an ANIMUS and if you wish to get more info you can call them at 1-877-937-7867 and they will answer all of you questions. They are available 24/7. I don't know if the VA will supply the pump but they will furnish all the supplies and asign a diabetes doctor and a dietician to monitor the patients progress and adjust the pump if necessary. The American diabetes association is also a good place to get information. The pump has changed my life, I feel better and I don't have to worry about low blood sugar as much anymore and my last A1C was 5,9, The pump works for me.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
