Filing For Secondary Conditions Due To Diabetes



I am service connected 100% PT for type 1 diabetes with retinopathy and have recently filed for SMC due to loss of use of bilateral shoulders due to adhesive capsulitis associated with my diabetes, I have provided evidence along with a nexus letter from my VA doctor for the shoulder issue but have never filed for these other conditions because I was told it was a part of the diabetic process. My question is should I file for these other conditions or do I only file when there is a loss of use.
Osteoarthritis * 715.90
Shoulder Pain 719.41
Mood Disorder (ICD-9-CM 296.90) 296
Hyperlipidemia 272.4
Peripheral Nerve Disease (ICD-9-CM
Limb Pain (Arms, Legs, Hands) 729.5
irritability, apathy , low energy,
Diabetes Mellitus Type I 250.01
