Gilberts Syndrome

Could I be denied enlistment in the US Army for Gilberts syndrome? My father was turned down from the Airforce when the Vietnam war was going on for Gilberts, and there is a possibility that I might have it.

Thanks, Justin.

Re: Gilberts Syndrome

I don't see why the army wouldn't take you just because you have Gilbert's, after all Napoleon had it too!! My 21 y.o. son has this as well and his doctor told him that it is harmless. The only problems with having this are that your blood work can sometimes mimic hepatitis and other diseases that you really don't have. So, it would be wise to tell new doctors that you encounter that you have this. As far as the army goes, I guess it really is up to the U.S. Army weather or not they wish to accept someone with Gilbert's. Good Luck in whatever you decide to do with your life....janiee
