  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Low Blood Glucose Non Dx



I understand that hypoglycemia is NOT diabeties but it is a symptom of an underlying cause.

Has anyone had hypoglycemia while on active duty and eventually dx'd and compensated for it? and if so what was the connection?

Thanks I just was curious. I think my pancreous is having issues, now with my blood sugar being high. It never was high before and my body is not responding well to the metformin.

Pete how are your numbers now? What did the glucose tolerance test show? I need to speak with my Endo about getting one. My blood sugar was a 58 then the next time just jumped way up for no reason except I did have those epidural shots for my back pain but this has been about a year now.

I used to have good control but lately not good at all. I am starting to believe that the insulin I get from the VA is no good. Is it paranoia or what. How can I find out?

I get my insulin delivered by mail and it always comes warm.

Insulin is supposed to say cold. I couldn't find any temp guildines here it says do not store in a car. I am on Testosterone and would never do the mail delivery with that nor any other hormone. I know you do what you have do do, I did think about the tricare mail order program for spring, fall and winter it might be okay but summer wouldn't work well. The one thing I read is 104 degrees is the highest it should ever get....I'm not sure what part of the county you are in, I think maybe TX but in know here it was over that a few times plus the heat being in the delivery vehicle with no a/c.

Anyhow there are a lot of questions all over.

Please stay up on your numbers.

"Do no leave insulin in the car. The heat inside a car can be damaging to the potency whether it is from exposure to the sun or confinement in the glove compartment"

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
