Greetings everyone,if you have one of these then what? I have thyroid disease and had it removed. I'm on the list for bad drinking water at Marine corps Bases... Women are eight times likely to have thyroid problems than a man. What increased my odds ?

Good info

reminds me that AL ( amyloidosis) is AO presumptive.

http://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/agentorange/conditions/al_amyloidosis.asp

Me. Plum have you filed a bad water Camp Le Jeune claim yet?

No I have not filed a bad water claim yet. I didn't know that Thyroid disease was on the list and I am having such a hard time here in Michigan regarding my claims, sitting at the RO waiting on BVA hearing. 08 is when I got my Docket member,this Nov 19 is when I had my hearing. It was brought up at the hearing about my Thyroid because of the PTSD. The minute I get the BBE, I will submit a Thyroid claim. Thanks Berta for the info and I will stay on top of it

Thank You Too!

I am glad I helped Me.Plum!

But I dont think the thyroid condition is considered yet to be from the contaminated water at Le Jeune.Those vets are having a hard time with their claims....the main wins have been those vets who developed any of the cancers VA listed.

You gave me a chance to re post this info here.

Not only is AL ( Amyloidosis) presumptive to any veteran exposed to Agent Orange,,

ALS is also presumptive to all veterans who fit into this criteria:

http://www1.va.gov/opa/pressrel/pressrelease.cfm?id=1583

ALS ( amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) aka Lou Gehrig's disease )

Anyone who served at least 90 days of continuous active duty in the U.S. military may qualify for VA benefits. Survivors of veterans may be eligible for benefits, including monthly compensation, regardless of when their loved one was lost to the disease."

http://www.alsa.org/news/archive/va-provides-benefits.html

I wonder how many vet reps know that.

Both of these VA press releases were posted here years ago as soon as I or other members got them,.......but I fear many vets with either of these two disabilities dont know of these regulations.

Immune system disorders cause abnormally low activity or overactivity of the immune system. In cases of immune system overactivity, the body attacks and damages its own tissues (autoimmune diseases). Immune deficiency diseases decrease the body's ability to fight invaders, causing vulnerability to infections.

In response to an unknown trigger, the immune system may begin producing antibodies that instead of fighting infections, attack the body's own tissues. Treatment for autoimmune diseases generally focuses on reducing immune system activity.

The purpose of the original post was/is to inform due to the fact that over the years we have gotten new membership at hadit.com. It maybe wise to pin this somewhere for future memberships to see. Also to inform all veterans if they have the symptoms to speak to their doctors about treatment and or therapy for better life and living and to file claims if warranted.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
