    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?”

    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

BigJim- if he is going to thoroughly check you for diabetes- they can do many things to help treat this.

"OH well, also he said that i have all

year, talk about gloom and dome, this guy was depressing ... also he said...."

They can treat diabetes and it can cause CAD-if not treated- did he state that the CAD was due to possible diabetes?

Seems to me they should have checked you out for diabetes before or right after the CAD.

If you get a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus-add this and the heart problems to your claim, as this is a presumptive Agent Orange disease-just like the prostrate cancer-in incountry Vietnam Veterans.

"cad can and does CAUSE SUGAR" that sure is an interesting medical statement.

That could screw up a DMII AO claim.

The medical community states emphatically that diabetes can cause CAD and brain trauma- if the patient has a hyperlipid hypothesis, this caused atherosclerosis which affects the heart , brain, eyes, PN, etc.

Maybe heart disease could possibly cause diabetes in isolated cases- but yet this sure is a new one to me.

I dont see how the VA could try to tell a DMII AO vet that their heart disease caused diabetes, and not Agent Orange.

But they will do this if they can.I think I read a BVA decision like that.

This is a most bizarre medical statement. I have studied diabetes for years and this is not supported by what any of the standard medical community findings have revealed.

Did they give you a HBIAC test?

The 103 is only one fasting glucose reading. I think you should get a copy of your complete medical records and see what the other readings for glucose were-for as far back as you were a patient at the VA.
