A long time ago when I was in the Navy I encountered a traumatic experience. From a result of that traumatic Experience I started to gain a large amount of weight. In about nine months time I went from around 190 pounds to 356 pounds. The Navy classified me unfit for SEA duty and shore duty. As a result of my obesity I now hand have typed 2 diabetes, hypertension, irregular heartbeat, and several other medical conditions. For the last 14 years I have been trying to get a veterans administration compensation for my obesity. The VA has continued to deny my Obesity because they claim obesity is not a medical disease but a symptom of a underlying condition. I have searched the Internet and have found numerous medical sites that claim obesity is a medical disease and in almost all sites claim that obesity and stress and depression are closely related. I would like some input on this subject from people who are in the medical profession.:confused:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
