They can determine if you are a diabetic-

dont worry -even if it show consistent abnormal reading, they can treat this in time-maybe with just diet changes- dont worry but let us know what they say---

If the VA diagnoses you with diabetes (not pre-diabetes-there is no such thing) due to glucose values in abnormal range-by Blood work, HBIAC test or OGGT

and if you are an incountry Vietnam Veteran, file a claim and say you have diabetes due to Agent Orange.

If you have foot problems, sight problems, ED, heart disease, atherosclerosis, and history of ischemia (TIAs or strokes, skin disorders, oral candidiasis, HBP etc etc -all in their training letter I posted here at hadit---

put any of these conditions that you have in your claim and state they are secondary to your AO DMII.

If you have diabetes you have to treat it. If a diabetic does not take control of his or her blood sugar it will absolutely brerak you down over time. Take it from diabetic for over 10 years who did not take the steps he should have.

Folks, I have seen the light and I am now on a path to lose weight, get control of diabetes, and take better care of my self. As one of the 307,000 Vets who get 100% from the VA I want to do it for a long time.

Before 1 PM Tuesday I was a heart attack waiting to happen. I used to think my high heart rate was my panic disorder now I know it was my heart trying to pump blood through a 10% opening.

So take your test you need to know for sure. If its an A1C it will telly you what your average is for 90 days a very good test. If it higher than 5.9 you better set some medical help.

Good Luck

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:

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

    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
