Filing For Secondary Conditions Due To Diabetes

Rate this question



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.
