What is the liklihood that a medical waiver would be granted for mild asthma?
|By Cadettony (Cadettony) on Monday, December 08, 2003 - 02:00 am: Edit|
not high. unless you can get it certified to be non-recurring in the past few years. good luck.

Any type of asthma is disqualifying

are mild allergies disqualifying?

I'm not sure. But if you're in some jungle or any other battlefield and your allergies act up it wouldn't be pleasant for you and your soldiers.

are the allergies documented, like did u go to the doctor for them or take any mdeications?

no i had mild allergies a few years ago but they're gone down. I had just used claritin for them and never went to the doctor.

There are drugs that makes allergy "pine away", There is treatment, quite efficien, that heal you in 40 days. You have to instill rising portions of antigens to tongue [in case of diffusion the antigens into circulation], a day by a day.
Go to the doctor, and ask for such a treatment

hey... i'm in the middle of my waiver process for mild asthma... i had mine classified as "excercise induced bhroniospasam" and it has been hell for the last year... i had to take a methylcholine challenge test where they try to induce an asthma attack, but if you can pass it and have documentation of no medications for the last 5 years. the asthma path is hard and almost never works. because i'm such a high rankign candidate they are sending me to new mexico military institute for a year to clear my medical and get me a waiver... good luck to ya.. but you need to get every doctor that you have ever seen to say that you don't have asthma

I had asthma when I was very young. For the past 10 years though, I've had no problems, and I have been on no medication. Am I still a hopeless case..?

All I 've heard is that asthma is a "deal breaker".

julieswimmer- how did you get them to give you the methylcholine challenge test? Also, what did you do to get sent to NMMI? I'm having this same problem, except for Navy. Thanks!

Little known fact, acne is the number one disqualifier in the physical requirements department, thats what i hear at least.
