: My husband was diagnosed with adult onset diabetes about 2 months after he got out of the military service. I was wondering if there is anyone else that has developed diabetes and if they feel it is related to GWS? He also has about 30 fatty tumors that were biopsied and were benign but is there anyone else with these symptoms. Please respond.
I didn't give it much thought. The Air Force just released a study that connected Diabetes to agent orange. I put it off on that. None of my family members through grandparents on both sides ever had diabetes. I went to Kuwait in '95 and '96. I flew all over the counrty in a helicopter looking for new operating location. maybe there is a connection. I was diagnosed with diabetes in 1997 during my retirement physical. Instead of medically retiring me they put it off on me fighting the VA. he battle is still going on.
