If you have DMII the doctor can see it by just looking at your HbA1c and fasting glucose levels. Have you ever been tested for neuropathy or any other secondary conditions of DMII? When I got my C&P for DMII the doctor just looked at my latest lab results and said "Yeah, you have it", so this is what it could be for you. If you have any pain in your feet,legs or vision troubles this could be secondary to DMII. Heart disease can be secondary. Once you have DMII it opens up Pandora's box.

Thank you for replying back.I had a few high blood sugar levels in the army as i stated and no one said anything to me about this.I have high cholestrol wich is now under control and was rated at o% for hypertension. The past few months my blood pressure has elevated and have to take two pills daily .I retired in 2005 from the army, and 2 years ago,I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 at the VA Hospital.I also wear diabetic shoes and socks.I was certain the c&p doc would ask about my feet or anything about diabetes.All the doc said to me was there is no need for any exam , everything is in the ccomputer as well as lab test.He aslo said i see you been going to the VA for quite some time , and that was it.Any feedback over the c&p as well as to the correlation beweetn high blood pressure, and Diabetes.I am sure its connected.Thank you.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
