    Are there any Type 1 diabetics who have been returned to duty following the IPEB? My package has been with AFPC for over 3 weeks. I do not wish to be retained. Should I worry?

    Background: I‘m an active duty USAF member who has been in 9 years/7 months. I work in a primarily medical admin position. PCM (provider) stated I can still be effective on job. CC recommended retirement.

    I've been on the med board for type 1 since October of 2016, which mine took longer due to fact I'm an AD Marine on an SDA assignment, which was processed through and Army base that had to mediate back and forth . I was found fit for duty yesterday, after 9 1/2 yrs of service. When the board looks at finding you fit or unfit two major things take in effect 1. You Non medical assessment. 2. Your impact statement. Because wanted to stay on I had a really good NMA that was in my favor to stay in, and I wrote a impact statement as well as got recommendation letters a ll the way up to a full bird. In your case your MAN needs to reflect that you no longer wish to continue service and explain why , which your commands needs to concur.

    Oct - Diagnosed/ER for 3 days
    Mar - VA Appointments
    Apr - fInished all appointments with VA
    June - Signed VA findings with PEBLO
    August -Received MEB offer of 60% DOD/80% VA
    Projected retirement - end of October

    The main advice I can give anyone is find out the treatment plan that works for you. I would reccomend a DEXCOM G5 CGM. My life has been so much better since i received the system. BY the way, I don't work for DEXCOM.
