    If you have received this medical diagnosis from your civilian provider, then you need to report this through your chain of command to the medical provider for your unit, or the state guard surgeons office.

    During the first gulf war, I had folks who showed up with their units being deployed with all sorts of medical issues that needed to be assessed for the ability to function in the slot they held, or to be issued a permanent/temporary profile. They felt that they were healthy enough to drill but not to deploy.

    I sat them down and did their medical boards within a week.. If they were unable to deploy now that they were needed, how could they expect to be fit for the next deployment. It is not fair to send another person in their place, as they expected.

    The medical folks would be hard pressed to take care of your diabetes properly under combat or deployed conditions.

    Remember, when all the infantry gets killed they send the cooks, mechanics, personnel clerks, etc to the front lines.
