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.

    • 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...
